The flow of traffic changes day to day.

I'm pretty sure it's dictated by how many idiots are around at a given point in time. People that try to move ahead in traffic end up making it worse.

I rode in today...was running late so figured the rocket would get me here faster...hov and all....but, the hov lane was filled with solo driving cagers...

still made it in early.. need a drz 400 sm to commute with spiked knuckle guards and a chain with a spiked ball on end to get fuggers to move..

Maybe a shotgun on my back might help too..

Sugarland motocop on HWY6 was standing at Oyster Creek Park and pointing his radar gun right at the commuter side looking for customers.

No sale from me today. I was scootin' along pretty good but traffic slowed me down just as I was coming into range. Phew...

The City of Houston has some kind of traffic patrol using scooters

They weren't splitting traffic, they were riding the e-lane.

I was just saying I saw them cut across traffic before they got to the E lane in your pic. Thought to myself if I should follow them

Years ago, HPd took applications for a civi(?) scooter squad of sorts... they zip around, do traffic control and the like. The original link for applicants was posted here on Mh at one time.. :-)

Quote:
They are ridden by civilians who work closely with HPD. They do traffic control on all the big 18 wheeler accidents, fatalities, pretty much any situation where a street needs to be shut down. They wear a brown uniform with bdu pants.
