When I first moved to Chicago, I thought it wouldn't be long til I worked at getting some kind of vehicle. That thought lasted roughly 37 seconds until I became acquainted with the CTA (Chicago's public transit) and, more importantly, Chicago traffic. Driving in Chicago sucks, y'all!
The photo above was taken at 4pm on a Sunday when traffic was at a near stand-still... for no apparent reason. No Cubs game, no politicians nearby, no reason at all.
