Got a call today saying my computer crashed yesterday and he is working on something so it might be a day or two more. My brother arrived last night at 11PM after being caught in a freeway backup for over 2 hours at 5 PM just outside of Chattanooga. After waiting for over 2 hours and not moving he watched 9 other drivers back up an turn onto the entrance ramp so he decided it was to hot to sit any longer and did the same thing. At the top of the ramp was the THP handing out tickets, then they sent them back down the ramp to wait with no information. About 45 minutes later the officer came down and announced on the PA from his car that they only had a mile and a half till it was clear sailing, then he backed up turned around and drove up the entrance ramp the same way all the others had. Bob was furious saying how can he do it but I can't. Oh he was mad, he should have been here by 7 PM and instead got held up 3 hours and got a $150 fine. Now my personal feeling is and always has been 'How can I give out a ticket to something that I do myself?' So I told him to fight the ticket especially because they had closed the freeway down behind them and had everyone exit the freeway but didn't bother to notify the ones ahead of the ramp. What's your viewpoint?
