  1. Cops were out in full force along Admiral Way this morning. They had someone pulled over around 6:30 a.m., then had two people pulled over (on both sides) a little after 7 a.m.

  3. time to pay attention there. I’ve experienced people going at least 50 mph in the right lane just to get ahead of everyone else, and then get over to go to the bridge at the last minute. I will admit that there have been a time or two when as they get to pass me on the right I speed up and won’t let them in. They can wait in line like everyone else ! :) And I hate the tailgaters. People, you can’t go any faster than the person in front of you…back off !
