    I dont know WHY anyone would comment that this traffic is CLEARED because it most DEFINITELY is NOT. I left Auburn an hour ago and i still havenr made it to hwy 5.

  2. FlyingTigress says:

    The point may be that all of the lanes may be cleared (i.e. re-opened to traffic) even if the back-up hasn’t cleared.

    Dont text and drive Sindely… and dont say you’re the passenger either because we all know you’re not.
