9/11 Tribute Does Not Lead to Threatened Carmaggedon


Thanks to our Facebook BFFs at the Reston Association, please to be enjoying this very nice photo album of pictures from the giant 9/11 tribute procession of motorcyclists that was supposed to snarl traffic this afternoon, but apparently didn't. Nice to see people cheer them on, and a nice tribute by and for the Reston firefighters who stood at attention as the procession rumbled past.


  1. The poor supervisors at the Fairfax Connector did all this work to prepare by stuffing West Falls Church metro full of buses and sending people down to Springfield to get home because the toll road was closed... for 17 minutes worth of parade.

    It's not their fault. We were all told to stay home and that roads would be chaotic for hours during the evening rush. Where did all this come from and why was no notice provided that the parade of motorcycles was only 17 minutes long? What the heck.

  2. This was another one of those "hey, kids, let's put on a show" moments ... enough already. What a waste of resources all the way around.
