The best laid plans ...

According to our GPS estimates (which assume no traffic) we would be arriving in NY by about 4:00pm. Unfortunately, being Memorial Day weekend, there was some roadwork not far after we started. We travelled 4 miles in one hour.
The road was much clearer after that, but we observed NY/NJ drivers are a lot "busier" than those down South. One vehicle, containing two young ladies, happily stayed in the left hand lane (the "fast" one) obviously hopping and bopping to their music, oblivious to all the cars tailgating and swerving around them. This gave us a great example to explain to the children what tailgating was, and why not observing surrounding traffic can also be dangerous.
Anyway, we finally got to the entrance to NY about 5:00pm.
