Maze Meltdown: Rubberneckers paradise 

Traffic gets jammed at the site of the damage — not because of problems on the road, but because drivers just can't resist slowing down to gawk, take photos and call their friends to discuss it. Watch a video of the problems being caused by rubberneck drivers and lookie-loo pedestrians on Examiner's "San Francisco in Videos" blog.

Lots of newphotos!
