That whole I-81 thing is very confusing. So is I-70. I'd expect a bunch more more people to go the wrong way.

I was heading east bound returning from Steelers game and this guy was heading right for us. I moved to the far right side of the road and he flew by. At that point he was 4 miles from the on/exit ramps by Phantom fireworks. amazing he didnt kill someone.

my favorite line from "planes trains and automobiles" is when they're in the wrong lane and someone shouts "you're going the wrong way" at then and del says "how would he know where we're going?"

Then you should not be behind the wheel of a vehicle. If you can't understand signs or roadways you have no business driving. I value my life, I don't want it to end by your stupidity in not being able to grasp simple things such as which direction you are supposed to be driving.

If you're driving drunk, you're definitely illegal.

Sorry it took me so long to reply but I just couldn't find this post. It's darn near as confusing as I81 but not as confusing as the Washington Beltway. I once spent six hours on there looking for the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. That bridge doesn't look anything like Woodrow Wilson, so why did they name it that? Anyway, when I get 81 at night I just look at the lights. If I see red everything is cool. If I see headlights I just do a 180 and floor it. Some close calls but so-far-so-good!
