    Sometimes I’ll look out the window from the hotel room and see 285 just stacked nose to tail and I say,”Nope” and close the curtain. It wouldn’t be so terrible if the back roads and shortcuts weren’t slam full of cars as well.

    Maybe one day you'll look at the window and see a different scene.

    when i first moved here in '93, i used to ride my bike across the north end on what used to be mt. vernon road. this was before all of the development really took off at that area (perimeter rei, exit 5a/b on 400) and the road was still two lane, so the traffic was already heinous. in the evening ride home, i used to get a ton of ticked off drivers because i was riding past lines of cars 1/2 mile + long at several of the intersections. i would ride from powers ferry to peachtree industrial and could make it in about the same time on a bike as in a car.

    Just to throw out another name, Chattanooga traffic is usually pretty bad.

    The funeral service for the Bramblett’s is this afternoon. Let us all be in prayer for those two children. I can’t fathom the thought of losing both parents at their age. May our Lord comfort them today.

    And it is.

    Auburn hit a game winning 3 run walk-off dinger to beat Georgia Tech last night and advance to the regional final in the winner’s bracket. Paul Ellen, a familiar name in the fambly, did his damndest, but he just ain’t Rod.

    It could be that he had a few too many sleepless nights. I have heard several days without sleep is the equivalent of being drunk. The falling asleep would explain why he was not hurt as bad. There would be no tensing up if you were asleep.

    God knows in my college days I had many all nighters that extend 2 and 3 nights. I had no business driving then. Thankfully nothing ever happened.

    Just reread that report and looked at the Google Maps street view of the intersection from February.

    It was just after 6 p.m. that Saturday evening. The 16-year-old driver – a Lee Scott Academy student – was traveling southbound in the outside lane on Shug Jordan Parkway approaching West Samford Avenue in his Jeep Laredo.

    The Brambletts, in a 2017 Toyota Highlander, were stopped in the southbound outside lane of Shug Jordan parkway at a traffic light. The Jeep struck the Bramblett’s SUV to the right of center, according to the crash report. The impact caused the Jeep to hit a pedestrian crossing signal and a traffic light police before coming to a final rest.

    The Bramblett’s vehicle was pushed into the intersection and through the opposing lanes of traffic before coming to a final rest on the curb.
    For the Jeep to hit the pedestrian crossing signal and then hit the traffic light pole before stopping, he had to be flying.

    I am curious about the Bramblett's car, though. They didn't hit anything?
