We all have to deal with traffic. It doesn’t matter if we’re driving in a car, riding a
bicycle or walking. Traffic is a fact of life. In the U.S. -just as in Germany -traffic is
In Germany you have traffic speed cameras, in the U.S. we have police (cops) hiding
in bushes and lurking under bridges just waiting to catch someone who is driving
over the snail pace of 55 miles per hour on most parts of the highway- around 88
km! When they catch you more often than not, you will get a ticket to pay a fine of
between 50 and 150 dollars.
I added vocabulary of traffic, but I didn’t add any “blue” language.
If you want to use cursing to deal with American police look at one of my earlier
posts on cursing, (but I’d advise against it).
The photos I use are from the Creative Commons or Dumpaday.com. I found the route cypher on http://www.braingle.com/brainteasers/codes/route.php. You can learn how to solve it there. I won't give it away except to say the last letter the "J" is just a place holder and not important to the message. The traffic vocabulary definition answers are: A. congested, B. detour, C. Neverland, D. Commutes, E. traffic jam, F. explosion, G. route cypher, H. construction. Do you know what the saying, "There is no traffic on the extra mile." means? The idea that you try harder than anyone else should give you a clue. Need a lesson on profanity, go to: http://www.bauenglish.com/blog/warning-lesson-on-profanity-a-how-to-guide.
