| Slow down for the conehead zone||0 comments|

yeah you heard me right... but how often do I rant and rave?
The other day whilst driving someone to their destination. (taxi drivers have nothing on me)...there is a construction zone nearby their work.
They are building some new offices...(as if we need more). The young man had dutifully set up traffic cones. I approached. The young man held up his sign "SLOW"
I stopped. Before me was such a maze of cones that I had no idea where I was supposed to go. Now...I know you are going to say.. "dang woman drivers". Now you know I can read minds lol.
I was quite prepared to go "SLOW". The entry to the parking lot I was heading to was not included in the cone arrangement.
So I had to thread-the-needle through it all to get to the parking lot.
Yes, I went slow.
The point I am making here is this isn't the first time. So often of late the cones (done by different construction crews I might add) are set up like some web made by a spider on LSD.
There was even one instance that a bus was unable to make a turn because the cones were not set up properly.
I think I have the answer to the problem. They need a training film or a class. Traffic Safety Cones 101.
Yeah, they wonder where the idea for coneheads came from lol.
