I'm sure someone has emntioned this one already.
I have a 45-minute commute on a good day. Yesterday, we got about 6 inches of snow in Denver.
I would up in the HOV express lane (I had my daughter with me, so I was allowed to be there) behind a guy who was by himself and doing 35 miles an hour in the 55 mph zone.
Cars were stacked up behind me.
We drove right by a cop, who didn't blink an eye. I got to work 2 hours after I left the house.
