Traffic Creepin’

I’m going to play Jerry Seinfeld for a moment, so please forgive me.

Did you ever notice when you’re at a stoplight, and the car in front of you inches up a bit, you inch up too? Where do you think you’re going?

This bit of “traffic creep” is something that I see all the time, and is something I partake in myself. But why? Why do we do it? We’re really not going to get anywhere faster, and being a foot closer to the red light doesn’t mean we’re going to make it green any faster.

Maybe we just like creepin’.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
