I didn't say I always drive them; I said "I must" - when I must. And when I must I must. They walk many days and take the bus when they are late but we live on the very fringe of the district and my daughter is in many bands with early practices, etc. etc.

I don't think I should have to justify when or why I do it. I am telling you the truth that when I do I sit at the light. In fact, in 3.5 years I have never not sat at the light and it is literally 8 light cycles.

If you ride a bike maybe you don't wait in line all the way back to the non-synchro light that also holds up traffic. Maybe you ride up the side of the cars. But I am not lying when I say that I have to wait - a lot.

I went to Mac in the 70's. I have a clear memory of how the intersection has worked over the last 40+ years and the current iteration is the worst by far. If the statistics on this site are correct, and I am sure that they are, this is all the more galling given that traffic volume is down.

Sometimes when the line is really long, I drop them off at the non-synchro light and turn around and go back downtown along Aberdeen because it is faster. With all due respect, that is ridiculous.
