Peak hour traffic can truly be annoying.
It makes you late for work, late for the school drop off. It can cause tempers to fray and babies to be born on the side of the road.
Adelaide mum, Bianca Grant had planned on having her second child in a hospital, like the majority of us – but peak hour in Adelaide intervened.
On the morning of May 12, Ms Grant was being rushed to hospital by her partner, Stephen Curran, but the heavy peak hour traffic was holding up the journey.
The City North Messenger reports that Mr Curran – trying to do the right thing as partners of women in labour tend to – said he was caught between Ms Grant urging him to go around the traffic and the ambulance service, who he had on the phone, telling him to stay put.
“Bianca was telling me to go round the cars, the ambulance on the phone told me to stay put,” Mr Curran said.
“In the end, I just had to deal with it.”
So deal with it he did.
He pulled over right next to two busy cafes and a busload of city workers agog with what was going on before them.
The couple were caught in peak hour. Via IStock.
“People were walking by and everyone could hear my Jurassic-style screams from the car,” Ms Grant told the newspaper.
“I had my feet on the dashboard and a bus pulled up next to us.
“We were trying to put up sheets in the windows to give us some privacy.
“The last thing I wanted was to end up on YouTube from someone taking a video.”
