    This is JUST 4 FUN, found it on another messageboard.

    Superbowl Driving Directions

    For all the visitors, from places other than Michigan, coming to the Super Bowl in January.


    1. First, you must learn to pronounce the city name. It's Deh-troit. NOT DEE-troit. If you pronounce it DEE-Troit then we will assume you are from Toledo and here for the country Music hoe-down.

    2. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Detroit has its own version of traffic rules... Hold on and pray!


    3. The morning rush hour is from 6:00 am to 10:00 am. The evening rush hour is from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning. Weekends are open game.

    4. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended and cussed out. If you're first off the starting line when the light turns green, count to five before going across the intersection. This will avoid getting in the way of cross-traffic who just ran their yellow light to keep from getting hit.

    5. Schoenherr can ONLY be properly pronounced by a native of the Detroit metro area. That goes for Gratiot too.

    6. Construction and renovation on I-94, I-96, I-75, I-275, I-375, The Lodge and The Southfield Freeways are a way of life and forever. Just deal with it.

    7. If someone actually has their turn signal on, it is probably a factory defect or they are "out! -of-town ers".

    8. All old men (or women) with white hair wearing a hat have total right-of-way.

    9. The minimum acceptable speed on I-696 and I-275 is 85 regardless of the posted speeds. Anything less is considered downright SISSY. Oh, and don't even think of allowing more than one car length between cars!

    10. I-275 and I-696 is our daily version of NASCAR.

    11. It's not M-10, it's "the Lodge".

    12. That's not a lake, it's a pothole.

    13. If someone tells you it's on Outer Drive, you better hope you have a map.

    14. The Michigan left turn is simple. If you want to turn left, go a 1/4 of a mile past your turn, get to the left, then make a left, then make another left, then make a right when you get back to the intersection where you wanted to turn left in the first p! lace. NOW you have gone left.

    15. And those 2 really ugly arches over Telegraph???? DON'T EVEN ASK!! WE DON'T HAVE A CLUE!!!!!


    WELCOME, ENJOY YOUR STAY!

            Yes it is.. Good catch. But doesn't it run north south?

            Either way we are being too critical.

            That was a VERY FUNNY article.
