    Traffic is usually backed up almost that far every morning. The lights at McTacoHut and Sunset screw it all up.

      You know Kate Hudgins? Sharon Bulova?
      Wiehle has become exciting all the way to Baron Cameron. Not the first accident this year.

        The most exciting place is the W&OD crosswalk at Sunset Hills and Wiehle.

          You could not get a sloppier result if you planned it. Of course a complete lack of planning had everything to do with that. You have people moving north downhill trying to make the light. Then the self-righteous bikers zipping into the lane irregardless of signals or anything because in their mind their righteousness entitles them.

          I believe fatalities have happened here before. With Metro, it will happen again.

          Right, Ms Hudgins?

      McTacoHut…Brillant!

      I hate that intersection!

        I guess you didn’t grow up in Reston. Lucky you.

      TraffIc is just flowing smoothly, I never had any problems. Perhaps get an oil change on your speedometer.

        Going to have to delete this. You can’t use the name Robert E Simon because you are not him. Please try again.

    With all of that bumper-to-bumper traffic, it makes one wonder how they ever managed to get up a large enough head of steam in order to shove that one car so far up the embankment.

    The cause of the frequent accidents at this intersection is nearly always a combination of excessive speed on Wiehle and limited visibility on North Shore.
