First of all, I will be the first to say that I do this every opportunity I get.
5.) YOU MIGHT GET STUCK AGAIN!
Locals know that while 2 cycles of being stuck at the lions bridge can be rare, it is a possibility, especially with other 'assholes' like me cutting the line.
4.) IT'S TOO HOT!
This time of year the heat is no joke. Even with the ac cranked, staying in one place with the sun beaming in your eyes can be more than uncomfortable. Skip the line and skip the baking in the sun!
3.) BAD DRIVERS
Are you gonna sit there and wait in a traffic line where the average age is 87? Multiple grandmas can make for a long wait to get in to downtown.
2.) IT'S FUN TO LOOK TO YOUR LEFT AND SEE ALL THE PEOPLE YOU'RE PASSING!
Let's be honest, this could be number 1.
1.) YOU FREAKING DESERVE TO USE THE TRICKS!
You deserve it! With traffic as bad as it is, if you've been here long enough to know how to go around it, then do it! Some people will say "I never let people in at the bridge". To that I say, someone will. And that someone usually isn't far behind the jerk like you that won't let me in.
