The article criticizes some actions by a number of people in Tucson, Arizona, which impede the flow of transportation. One such action is the prohibition of wide loads from going through the road under construction along Alvernon Way. The driver who sees the sign will not be able to turn around because there is no room. Another action is putting a 25 mph speed limit on North Craycroft road even when there is no ongoing construction work.
