Don't forget. Special Event Zones are in effect now. No going faster than 30 mph on Coastal Highway (main drag) and side streets (Baltimore and Philadelphia mainly) until Monday. Cops are out in FORCE!! There won't be any getting away with peeling out at stop lights or intersections. Be smart.

And if you can't be there, you can watch the daily parades, and traffic on Coastal at www.oceancitylive.com

Supposed to start at 8 a.m. each morning, but they're usually going down by 7:30 a.m. Over by 9:30 usually. Don't forget to check out the shows at the inlet , the Convention Center, and other places around town, plus the cruise in in Berlin on Saturday.

Spent last night there. Weather was great. Crowds in the thousands and cops in the hundreds. All in all, a good night.

Decided not to go because of the cops heard they lowered the speed limit to 30mph. Friends that were down there Thursday got tickes for no front tag and clear tag cover soon as they arrived.

I ended up going down Satursday morning. I spent most of the day there. Definitly a fun time. It's obvious the local political machine has no love for the cruise, given the police presence. The cops were virtually on every corner and they were looking for things to cite people for. On the other hand, a case could be made for not wanting 1500hp, blown cars on the street. I thought it was pretty cool. though.

Drove over the bay bridge towards OC today around 4:30 and they were backed up going westbound from over the bridge, all the way back to about Easton. About 20, 25 miles. I'm talking bumper to bumper, crawling or stopped. There were no accidents, just that many cars . I felt sorry for them because I bet 9/10 of them had no clue why they were stuck in traffic. Including the Meguiars and Comp Cam's tractor trailers were in the mess. Would't wish backups like that on anyone. Hope you all made it home okay. I'm enjoying the last few days of quiet in OC without the mayhem. As for the cops, came down Coastal about 8:30 tonight (SUNDAY!) and cops were still sitting with radar guns out their windows. lol
