Pic of the Day: Parking Lot Insanity

November 30, 2011

Today’s POTD comes courtesy of the National Archives showing an overhead view of (I’m merely guessing) a prelude to an alarming end-of-day predicament.

This nearly-unbelievable scene was captured in Washington D.C in 1974 and the Tetris-like jumble detailed in the photo below was the direct result of a Bus Strike that saw over a quarter-of-a-million commuters resorting to their cars for their morning/daily travels.

I couldn’t even begin to imagine the level of congestion that arose… Would something like this even happen nowadays…?!
