Welcome to 2cargarage.com

No. 2cargarage.com is not my first choice. I don’t think it even cracked the top 20. But with like a gazillion blogs out there in the wold wide web, it’s incredibly difficult to find decent names. Try it yourself – you’ll see.

You know what name I really wanted for my blog? — gridlock.com

2nd choice? — roadrage.com

I could have chosen roadfury.com – but it just doesn’t have the same ring to it as roadrage.com.

gridlock.com sounds pretty cool though, doesn’t it? It’s tough…which I’m not…which is why I like it – obviously.


So 2cargarage.com it is. Or more precisely, 2cargarage.blogspot.com. I’m ok with the name, actually. It’s my little inside joke. My little poke at the suburban dream and the congestion nightmare it casts on the millions. We’ll get to that in another post.

So what’s this blog going to be all about? Well, we’ll (why do I think I now have a team working for me on this??) —- Well, I’ll be talking about those 2 little cars and what happens to them…and their drivers…when they take little trips from their safe garages out into the world.

I am going to delve into the bizarre world of traffic — the drivers, the laws, the governments, the decisions, the roads, the signs, the lines, the crashes, the stats, the photos, the videos, the laws, the arguments, the suffering, the humour, the innovations, the evolution, the history, the culture…….all of it…..

In addition to being fascinating to me – I hope it’s fascinating to you too.

Make no mistake about it — Traffic Engineering is a dark art. It appears so simple when you’re driving your regular route to work or school…..but there are layers and layers of artness and darkness just waiting to be uncovered.

I hope you stick around to see what I mean…
