I Will Definitely Drive Side Streets All Day To Avoid Sedalia Traffic
I don't think anybody likes traffic. I can't think of a single person who would sit in their car, after five minutes of not moving, and say to themselves, "Well, this was a nice moment for personal reflection."
No! Everybody just wants to go home or get tacos or whatever it is you're doing. So I know that as a native Sedalian, I see a lot of you out there doing the same thing I'm doing, taking alternate routes so you don't have to use Broadway. I'll go two or three blocks out of my way to take Main Street because I don't want to have to deal with crazy people.
And turning left anywhere on Broadway that isn't a stoplight? Almost impossible during the day. I get it, sometimes it's necessary - but I swear, 8 times out of 10, if I have to turn left on Broadway, I will have tried to circle around, and again, go out of my way, so I can turn around and turn right into said business instead.
It probably doesn't do anything for me time wise. I bet I take just as long avoiding Broadway as it would take for me to get along normally. But I think it's more about my MENTAL HEALTH than anything else. I just want to spare myself, I guess.
What about you? Do you take alternate routes to avoid the traffic areas?
