I might not be a Vashon Island local, but during my recent visit, I couldn’t help but notice some absurd driving escapades taking place. So, buckle up, grab some popcorn, and let’s dive into the chaotic world of Vashon’s streets!
The Four-Way Stop Fiasco
First things first, the four-way stop in town deserves a special mention. You’d think that such a simple traffic rule would be a no-brainer, but apparently, it’s rocket science for some Vashon drivers. Prepare yourself for some theatrical performances as drivers hesitate, inch forward, and engage in a complex dance of indecision. It’s like watching a live-action version of “Whose Turn Is It Anyway?”
Speed Demons on the Highway
The Highway seems to have become a playground for the island’s speed demons. Be on the lookout for a Ford F150, a black Dodge truck, a silver Toyota 4Runner, and a small white car that treats the road like their personal racetrack. It’s like they’re auditioning for the next Fast and Furious movie. Just remember, you’re not Vin Diesel, so keep it safe, folks.
Meet the Quirky Drivers
Without mentioning the diverse cast of driving personalities, it wouldn’t be a complete guide. Rednecks, snarky old white men, and even the occasional Karen make their appearances, adding some spice to your driving experience. And let’s not forget the star of the show: that one guy who can’t figure out how a four-way stop works.
Remember to take these tongue-in-cheek observations with a grain of salt and stay safe on the road. After all, you’ve got better things to do on this Island in 2023, like checking out great local Vashon restaurants, for some fantastic food or enjoying the island’s scenic beauty. Happy driving, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
