    There idiots every single day traffic is backed up becuase drivers want to decel on freeway almost to a stop to turn onto the decel lane and the same for the on ramps they don’t accelerate they. Slow to a stop to get onto the high way Grand Rapids has worst drivers in this nation there is no reason for it to be backed up every single day all do to people who have no business on freeway or to drive period
