As I passed by, I saw a bright red BMW 3 series, probably mid-80s vintage, parked in the far left lane. Nothing else seemed to be amiss.
Later in the day, I found a link to this story: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/news/archive/2004/04/02/state2314EST0197.DTL
I guess I'm lucky I hit the office when I did. Any later and I would have been stuck in hellacious traffic.
And while I'm writing, I made an appointment to get my hair bleached and dyed a week from tomorrow. Yay! No more brown for me... it'll be all purple all the time.
