GOT DAMN! You people cannot keep up with a conversation to save your lives! Let me break it down 3rd grade style for you......I'll just leave this riiiiiight here with the logical inconsistency.
YOU: I drive NB on Rte 5 through the intersection and police have cracked down on shoulder runners THUS... eliminating the people using Old Great Mills Road to cut in at the lane merge.
Me: Those lane runners are now sitting in traffic BEFORE Rte 5 reaches Great Mills Road intersection thus meaning more congestion BEFORE Great Mills Road.
Also Me: The people using Old Great Mills Road had little to no effect on the overall traffic issues at that intersection
