TRAFFIC JAMS. Always terrible around here. No matter how much I pad the schedule, it's never enough. Any appointment made 7 - 9 am or 3 - 7 pm is subject to delay due to traffic. Thankfully, signers are usually well aware of traffic problems in and out of their areas. When I confirm appointments during commute hours, I always remind the signer of traffic, and tell them that I will be there in a window - 4 to 4:15, or 5:15 to 5:30, for example.
