Since nobody understands the expression "TIME IS MONEY" more than a cabbie, we are often the ones that are caught in cop traps like the following one, which has become an ALL DAY, EVERYDAY pastime for one particular patrol car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN LEFT FROM THE RIGHT LANE when approaching DELANCEY from southbound CHRYSTIE STREET. They hang out just beyond the intersection and WILL KNOCK OUT your livelihood for the day, not to mention the points! If you are in a rush to get on the bridge, a simple little secret could potentially work out. I'm talking about a smaller vertical southbound street: Ludlow! Try it out by getting on it at Houston Street and see how smooth the left turn unto Delancey becomes. There really aren't any other little streets which allow for this. Any closer to the bridge and the median is closed. Any further away and you encounter thicker traffic, though you may wanna try your luck on Mott Street, which provides access from Houston Street to Kenmare Street (which becomes Delancey past the Bowery).
