#45 - tunnel love
I guess this is more of a love/hate kinda thing - fairly unique to Pittsburgh is the speed (or lack thereof) at which people enter tunnels.
Which is why I propose the following:
At the entrance of each tunnel in Pittsburgh (or, at a minimum, the Squirrel Hill, Ft Pitt, and Liberty Tunnels) put up one of those big orange construction signs that says "Free Jeff Reed autographs at the next exit." Halfway through the tunnel, put a sign that says "Homeland security reports there may be a bomb in the tunnel" because we all know by the halfway point, everyone would have forgotten about the allure of a Jeff Reed autograph, realized they were in a tunnel, and slowed the F down. At the exit of the tunnel, a sign will be placed that says "Due to Jeff Reed killing the terrorists, he has blood on his hands and is unable to sign autographs."
I feel this would greatly improve the flow of traffic in and out of Pittsburgh Tunnels.
