366 days of gratitude

People who live in cities choose, or have, to use buses regularly and the drivers’ strike in Auckland was forecast to cause chaos however, commuters report ‘dream runs’ and lighter than usual traffic  thanks to many opting to walk or take alternative forms of transport.

What that says about repeated calls for more public transport and fewer cars is moot and dream runs and lighter traffic are relative.

I live about 20 kilometres from town. There are three give way signs on the route I usually take and nine times out of 10 there’s no traffic to which I have to yield.

Unless someone’s moving stock on the road or there’s a harvester or other heavy machinery using it, I can make the trip with no hold-ups.

Today I’m grateful I’m grateful I don’t have to deal with urban traffic and the associated stop-go driving regularly.
