But not until now have I been able to give you a visual aid. A way to see what I see during my (ideally) 45- to (less-ideally) 90-minute ride into and out of the District each day. This video, to my understanding, was taken by some guy with a dashboard cam. It covers much more ground than my commute does (seriously, I have never been on some of these roads for any reason), but my little ride is definitely included.
Come. See what I see.
He mislabels the Mixing Bowl interchange (which is actually nowhere near the Pentagon), but it’s still pretty cool. Don’t you wish you got to deal with this traffic every day?
