My +1 and i were walking down the block tonight (1/8) to The Diner in Adams Morgan, and there was a Uber/Lyft small Kia SUV blocking northbound traffic on 18th. Maryland plates, naturally. After a good 5 minutes of folks honking, a cop (stuck in the traffic about 5 cars back) got out and approached the driver to tell him to either pull over or keep driving because he’s causing a serious jam.
Props to the cop for a) taking simple, but effective and appreciated action, and b) getting out of his cruiser in this 5 degree weather to shame the Maryland driver. Us DC residents always love an opportunity for the latter.”
