A Commute Worse Than Yours

Two feuding French mayors have taken steps to make their constituent's commute into Paris extra painful. The mayor of Levallois-Perret made D909 into a one way street to help reduce commuter traffic going through his district.  However, this created more traffic congestion in neighboring Clichy-la-Garenne.

The mayor of Clichy-la-Garenne responded in the obvious neighborly way of also making his district's portion of the same street one way also -in the opposite direction!

Thousands of commuters travel through the two suburbs each day into Paris, and municipal and national police were called in to redirect traffic away from the gridlock.
