If you’ve ever driven in Houston, you know it’s not the easiest undertaking. Rush hour is at least four hours, and no one can agree on whether Houstonians all drive too fast or too slow. Hats off to the following tweets, which perfectly articulate the struggle.
There's stand still traffic in the 290 HOV lane. There's no accident. Just a Prius at the front of the line #HoustonTraffic

Friendly reminder: Do NOT tweet and drive, even if traffic is at a standstill. Keep your phone out of reach and out of sight, then vent on social media to your heart’s content once you’re parked.
