Iraq. You create your own traffic patterns when you've got a kid manning a .50 on your roof. Traffic is even more meaningless when your truck was tired even before they bolted on the armor kit- after that a moped with three guys on it can leave you standing still. Hopping berms is almost impossible then, too.

What's infuriating is when you're stuck closing a road until the engineers clear the IED, and within 10 minutes the small dirt road paralleling the highway has 5 cars abreast and every one of them thinks he'll be the one guy to talk you into letting him go through. "Bomb, yes, very dangerous. I go through, please?"
