I just had to comment that I was stuck in the traffic that resulted from the closure and it took more than an hour to go a few blocks on Alma. Most drivers were amazingly patient and considerate in spite of the situation but I saw several drivers pull into intersections when their signals had turned red and they had no room to move through. This caused a gridlock for drivers with a green light. We had to sit there and wait for them to move while our lights turn red, green, red, etc. It made a trying situation so much worse. Why do people do this? Is it not against the law? I've always believed it was against the law to enter an intersection if you have no hope of clearing it before your signal turns red. Is there a ticket for this? Can a driver call in and rat on the offender?
