When you live in Ocean County, traffic is a common topic. We have our annoying traffic patterns, our bad intersections, and just plain irritating roads. But we also have plenty of roads where the traffic lights are the cause of consternation.
Sometimes we have to take time to think about the little things in life that make us happy. They may seem like things that are inconsequential to most other people, but they make you smile. I had one of those experiences yesterday.
When you drive the same way to and from work every day you start to learn the idiosyncrasies of the area. And, if you're like me, you get to know the general timing of the traffic lights, too. Until, of course, they change them.
