GDOT in all it’s awesomeness

For those huge transit nerds out there, I have a little story for you.  A story of how GDOT, ever the bully, tries to stomp transit every chance it gets.  I’m sure that many of you were aware that there was to be a display of a light-rail car from Charlotte down in Centennial Park this week, mainly Thursday and Friday.  It’s an example of the kind of vehicle that might be used on the Beltline.  However, said awesome example of transit coolness didn’t make it to Atlanta Thursday.  Instead, it sat at the Georgia state line all day.

Why?

Because GDOT wouldn’t issue the permit for an oversized load to the truck hauling the car.

But it should make it in town today.
