    Traffic has been horrendous this week!!! Even on a holiday, traffic was "normal." Is there some kind of event going on?

    A bunch of people from rural Georgia didn't realize The Walking Dead was fiction and drove in to help?

    Lmao at Budder.

    There have been a ton of things going on this week at the dome. Tonight was a falcons game I believe. Earlier this week they had a gathering of motivational speakers also had a large show called "fab tech" that drew a record crowd this year.

    I'm not coming to help. No way, Nuh, uh, not ever. I tell you what, I might come down and help if you guys from Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs will let people into the right lane to get on GA 400 during rush hour. Pricks! You deserve the Walking Dead. Well, come to think of it, I used to live in Sandy Springs.... it already is the Walking Dead.

    NOTE: Horse at walking speed (not in a gallop or a cantor, but at a walking pace) is fast enough to warrant use of the second leftmost lane on the freeway in Atlanta.

    (Sounds about right)

    I thought on the show he said he was coming in via I-85 South. I guess I should follow the Walking Dead thread if I want to pick it apart, huh?

    Just a tad bit of artistic license in that scene.
    No way the buildings of downtown Atlanta can look that big in relation to the overpass at that location (and the distance between Boulevard NE and the Jackson St NE overpass is only about 300 ft. so the location is kinda ... constrained.)

    And as everyone knows...there are no train tracks paralleling Freedom Pkwy in that area.

    And the second leftmost lane is still horse walking speed.
