A Bus Runs Through a Red Light

An ambulance parks  at an intersection so that it blocks both a lane of traffic, and the ability of cars on either street to see oncoming traffic or pedestrians.  Two different traffic control cars double park, obstructing traffic, while they give tickets to cars that are illegally parked (each has a sign on the back reading: “How’s my driving?”).  A taxi cab makes an improper left turn, ignoring two pedestrians who are lucky to be alive and kicking.  Another taxi cab turns right on a red light where the sign says “No right turn on red”.  17th Street is closed while 18 separate vehicles escort some important politico from place to place.

Just another day in your nation’s capital.
