Traffic can be so random around here. Most days it takes me an hour to get home but occasionally it can take two and a half. There never seems to be any reason for it. An extra thousand people just decided to take the same road as me on those days. I think the worst part is that people driving home from work are very angry. They really want to get home fast and any sign of traffic slow down causes them to drive like a maniac zipping in and out of the lanes. I think I have one close call every two weeks on this route.
