For the past 15 years I've had the honor of crossing the blue bridge every day. like clockwork I get a bit of road rage BECAUSE OF OTHER DRIVERS! pretty sure people don't have a clue on how to drive over the bridge. remember, it is your responsibility to drive reasonable and prudent over such a short and NARROW roadway! Here are a few things to remember.

    SPEED LIMIT!!

    The speed limit is 55 unless posted differently. for some reason many think its the time to speed up and practice Fast and furious driving skills. This is not the place to channel your inner Paul Walker...what? too soon?

    Tailgating!!

    RCW 46.61.145

    Following too closely.

    (1) The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the highway....tailgating over the blue bridge is just asking for it!! The curvature of the roadway makes it almost impossible to see possible congestion or accidents ahead of you. chill out little buddy

    Merging

    Merging before of after the Blue bridge is just a way of life...Do you know exactly where the driver in front of you is going? No you don't!! maybe that guy or gal in front of you is in the left lane for reason...maybe just maybe! they're taking the Lewis street exit.... the blue bridge is not a place to be practicing your sweet weaving skills..stay calm for 10 seconds (because thats all it takes to drive over the bridge) Then you can weave in and out all you want.

    Common Courtesy

    Ok, I get it!.. you're late...you've been playing Halo on the x-box...you gotta rush to make it on time for work. you have places to go, people to see! Anybody driving slower than you is an idiot and anyone driving faster is a maniac...again, I GET IT!! but its only a stretch of road measuring 2,520 ft...stay calm, be courteous. you will not make up lost time over the bridge. IT DOES NOT MAKE TIME TRAVEL POSSIBLE!...that only applies with the flux capacitor

    PICKUP TRUCKS!!

    I guess some truck owners think bigger is better!! according to cosmopolitan its not true!! Lets face it, You spent more on your pickup truck than your education. maybe you should realize that tailgating  over the blue bridge is NOT going to make the three cars ahead of me go faster...jus sayin... and yes, we all know about your lil secret..its called OVERCOMPENSATION!
