Taylor Wait

Taylor Wait | Pun, Traffic | An appropriate play on Taylor Way, an arterial route in West Vancouver that feeds traffic from the Upper Levels Highway and the British Properties down to Marine Drive where it connects to both the Lion’s Gate Bridge and the Park Royal shopping mall. During peak traffic hours it often gets backed up, contributing to the overall clogging of the bridge. The pun is especially fitting in the nightmare scenario that sees Taylor Way’s regular rush hour compounded by ferry traffic and Whistler weekend returns.

Usage: “Hey, yeah…sorry…I’m going to be late. I’m stuck in ferry traffic near the top of Taylor Wait.”
