Ever wonder what a Guardian employee listens to as she drives in to work? Wonder no more: for Sarah Phelan, it’s Puddle of Mudd’s “Blurry,” which, honestly, seems more like a Weekly type of song. But saying something like “what was NPR off the air this morning” is stereotyping and WRONG. As is being surprised that a Guardian employee drives a car. STOP IT.

But that’s not why we’re here: we’re digging this video because it does a great job of illustrating the kind of surprising turn drivers need to take at the new section of the bridge. And by “kind of surprising” we mean that everyone in the office yelled “WOAH” when Phelan hit the 35 MPH turn.

Phelan was one of the first folks to get back on the bridge in this morning’s surprise commute. She notes “the commute will probably be a little slower as folks slow for the curve–and rubber neck to take a look at what’s changed.” To which we say “damn right” because that turn looks kind of intense.

Of course, we haven’t driven it ourselves, yet, have you? How did you find things on our semi-new bridge?
