“So this genius thought it was appropriate to park in the middle of the highway to see Bixby… he even locked the car before he went to site-see. All the cars in front of us had to literally go around into the northbound lane when there was a break in oncoming traffic… Once my friend laid on the horn he acknowledged it was his car, pointed to his watch, not sure if he was trying to tell us he was only there for a minute or what and then when everyone was staring at him he decided he’d get back to his car and his passengers followed suit… I swear I had seen it all but this one took the cake…”
9/30/16 at Old Coast Road and Bixby, photos by Martha Diehl, who writes: ” Once again the roadway was completely blocked and it was not possible to reach the highway. I got out of my car and asked the tour driver (vehicle with trailer) to move: she responded that she would only be there a few minutes. When I then got out the camera she pulled forward to the bus stop. I then hollered at the crowd to find the operator of the next car: he came to move that. Couldnt find the prius driver. Meanwhile northbound vehicles continued to try to turn in only to find themselves blocked from forward progress halfway, thus stopping traffic on the highway. Eventually there was enough of a space so I could leave….
