Commute

On the way into work, I hve to take Route 22 in PA. It is a 2 lane highway with east and west sets of 2 lanes each seperated only by concrete highway barriers. There's a small shoulder just wide enough for a truck to stop there. Today there was construction and the right lane and only shoulder were closed. As people were merging, a Tractor Trailer, one of the ones with a back like an extended dumptruck, passed me on the right, tailgating the car in front of him. As he passed me, I noticed he was on a cell phone. When the car in front of him tried to merge left, the rig went around him to the right! He veered onto the shoulder and zoomed by, taking this opportunity to pass the long line of cars that were entering the construction area. I also caught a glimpse of him cutting off a dark sedan when he finally merged at the last possible moment. I lost sight of him at this point until after the construction zone. What I saw then made me very happy. The dark sedan he'd cut off? An unmarked police car. The cop had pulled him over and had one of the little hand-placed bubbles on top of the car. Evidently my "Summon Cop" spell worked this morning.
