A pedestrian was killed and traffic was backed up for miles while paramedics/tow trucks and police had the road blocked.

City traffic accident, but the delay was not a major one like and accident on the interstate will cause.

A really, really big Case tranktor (tractor with rubber bulldozer like tracks) trying to pass a trash truck with some sort of engine problem (or maybe he was just deploying a big blue smoke screen to evade the tranktor...) uphill on the interstate, no joking.

32 in a 70 for almost 5 miles. Probably would not be that big of a deal, but traffic stacked up at my exit because of it.

Police had the upper highway closed for what we could tell at the time was NOTHING, even the eye in the sky could see no problem just a police barricade at one end and another 4 kms down the road. A waste of time if you ask me !!

Aside from the obvious weather or accidents, On my travels in Fort Worth, between 183 where it splits to 121 and 820 North, the 820 section going west towards IH35 is usually just people not letting other people in front of them, discourteous driving habits. There is rarely an accident and really no need to have the traffic back up at the entrance ramp right after Rufe Snow. If you travel that way, have you ever noticed how all of a sudden traffic speeds up for no reason between the Rufe Snow entrance ramp and the Halthom Road exit?. Rubber neckers and perceived traffic conditions contributes to 85% of the traffic in that area alone in my estimation.

When I was in Pittsburgh recently I notice the highway department actually has a sign that says something to the effect of "Please allow drivers to merge in front of you" (Best drivers I have seen. We Texas drivers could learn a lesson or two)
