The other night I found myself in hellacious downtown rush hour traffic, possibly due to a train I was still ignorant of. Got a DF pickup a few blocks NE of the capitol going to a cool looking pub towards the airport, ish. I asked the pax if he wanted to take Johnson or East Wash...he didn't care...so I took East Wash per the navigation. Boy was that a mistake. Suddenly my Pandora / Bluetooth cut out. Normally it's an easy fix; I just have to swipe down, diable Bluetooth, re-enable it, etc. However this time it took a couple of tries. While I was fiddling I got honked at, even though no one was going anywhere quickly due to the traffic. Later there was an apparent red light which was actually a train that resulted in my car getting stuck in the middle of an intersection while the light turned green for cross traffic. Not good, so I pulled off to the side and out of the intersection. We were almost to the destination when I was unable to proceed through a green light due to a police car chasing another one through a red light. Again I got honked at by the guy behind me who apparently would have preferred to get smeared across the intersection. Pretty sure this was the pax who 4*'d me this week. So, while not all these events were my fault, the fiddling at the beginning probably contributed to his discontent and possibly frazzled me for the rest of the trip. For example, I shouldn't have entered the intersection I got "stuck" in, even though everyone was crawling. Had I been scanning far down the road I would have seen the train or evidence of it. In the future when Bluetooth cuts out during a trip I am simply going to switch to the radio and focus on the basics. I typically get burned when I don't focus on the basics. And because I'm driving less and less I don't have as much "practice"...it's easy to get rusty with regard to driving rush hour.
