If you haven't been to Ptld you don't wanna spend your first visit trying to figure out how to drive in downtown. It's mostly 1-ways with a few 2-ways thrown in to confuse the tourists. Matter o' fact, there are 2 hotel stands that some of us sit where we can count on more than one hand how many people are going to be driving the wrong way up the 1-ways in any given hour.
For the most part, I find this amusing, unless they're coming at me in my left lane and can't decipher me honking my horn and flashing my lights that they're going the wrong way. (Hint: if you're driving up a street and NONE of the signs are facing your direction, you mights wanna check your directions)
Anyway, a few months back they were repaving one of the busiest roads in dntn Ptld - Naito Pkwy - and when they were in the process of reopening it they only opened one side, two lanes, and it was only going south. Northbound had to use 2nd ave. So I'm sitting in the left lane at a light, dude in a truck sitting next to me when a fella pulls out about 4 blocks ahead of us, coming at us, the wrong way, in my lane. I start flashing my lights, dude next to me does the same. Guy keeps coming at me. Fella next to me rolls down his window so I rolled down my passenger window.
Dude: Ya think he's gonna make it all the way here before he figures it out?
Me: I just hope he actually sees me, this could get ugly. grin Where's a cop when you need one, eh?
Right then I hear a loud speaker from the cop sitting behind the guy in the truck. 8- \
Cop: Well, if one of you people would get out of the way I could DO something about that guy.
Me: Ah, oops!! Allow me!! I pulled out and around the guy in the truck and got as far from there as I could, as quickly as possible.
