This is just a little story about our trip to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg VA. We were there about 9:20 AM on the 9th of this month. The park opened at 10AM. There are about 10 lanes going into the park with a toll booth at each one to collect the $15 parking fee. Gates are down at the booths, cones in the middle of the lanes at each booth, and cones about 10 car lengths back in the middle of each lane.
We were the second car back in our row. Now, we're all early, waiting to spend $72 each to spend ALL day walking in the sun, no matter how you look at it it's going to a long hot day for most people there. So in the cool of the morning most of the cars are sitting there, motors running, windows up A/C on. After a while there is some activity at the toll booths. A guy walks up the side of the entrance lanes with a cart to collect the cones just in front of the cars. He makes his way to the far left side of the lanes and starts picking up the cones and putting them on his cart on his way back to the right.
Now it's maybe 9:30 the park still won't be open for a while yet. There are still cones very visibly ahead of us all the gates are still down. As the guy collects his cones in each lane each car takes off as if it's a race to the next set of cones. If doesn't matter how fast they drive to the cones there is only one guy in charge of the cones. After he makes his way across all the lanes he has to walk himself and his cart up to the booths to collect the next set of cones. It's a few more minutes until he has them all collected and we can now wait at the gate and pay our parking.
So this is what we're up against, these people had many minutes to sit and evaluate the situation and the best response most came up with is go like hell. It's no wonder it is a problem for them when them come up behind a bike.
