Can a tweet about traffic make you laugh?

WSDOT tweets out a hand drawn map similar to this one every week to give communters a heads up on weekend traffic woes. This map was created by Ally Barrera.

Jeannie Yandel speaks with Ally Barrera and Mike Allende, the minds behind two of Washington Department of Transportation's Twitter accounts, @wsdot and @wsdot_traffic. They are known for posting gifs, memes and hand drawn maps to make Seattle area traffic just a little less awful.
