Navigating Wichita streets

If I have time in between assignments I like to take different routes to get to and from places. This way I can see new things that sometimes lead to story ideas.

The fact that the entire city is under construction makes this goal much more attainable since I am now constantly searching for alternative routes. This turned out to be a good thing yesterday when I was driving down Douglas instead of the orange-and-white coney Kellogg. I stumbled onto an accident where a woman crashed into a glass storefront. Thankfully, she was unharmed and the police credit her for doing the right thing when her brakes failed.
