The 10 Commandments of Driving in Greater Danbury
Thou shall avoid the intersection where Padanaram Road meets North Street due to the never-ending construction at exit 6 off of I-84.
Thou shall pay attention to the pedestrians waiting on a Main Street crosswalk, lest you should run over a fellow human and cause a monumental traffic jam.
When encountering a pothole, thou shalt pull over to the side of the road, snap a photo of said pothole, and immediately send it to Mayor Mark's office.
Thou Shalt NEVER travel I-84 east through Danbury during a late afternoon (especially Friday), unless you enjoy sitting in traffic and making faces at other unfortunate drivers.
When driving I-84 in Danbury, and a french fry craving overcomes you, thou shalt get off at Exit 4, and go directly to the McDonald's drive-thru -- easy on-eth and easy off-eth.
Thou shalt back it down from going 80 mph in a 65 mph zone between exits 8 and 11 on I-84 east traveling toward Waterbury. Unless you need to poop, of course.
Thou shalt not ever pass a school bus with its red lights flashing, unless thee wants to part-eth with $450.
Thou shalt not, under any circumstances, travel I-84 east through Waterbury because of the never-ending construction and traffic delays, where short-tempered drivers might lose their minds.
When Driving on I-84, at the fork in the road at exit 3 toward the mall, thou shalt NOT decide which way works for you at the very last minute. Let's avoid a catastrophic car accident due to your driving ineptitude.
Thou shalt avoid the longest damned traffic light in Danbury. It's the one near Stew Leonard's, approaching the intersection from Nabby Road onto Federal Road, which has been known to stay red for up to five minutes.
