Over the Thanksgiving holiday I had the opportunity to travel back to my home town, Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I was right back in ‘motordom’, putting several hundred miles on a rental car driving between New York, Pittsfield and the Boston suburbs (and back).

We may have abused the original intent of sharrows here in Portland, but at least we don’t have to suffer this.
