      You get a beautiful picture illustrating the sad results of the
      General Motors Streetcar Conspiracy. Don't go there.

      Now hover the mouse over a trouble-spot. You get a nice little popup,
      describing the traffic conditions from a series of underground
      sensors.

      Now try to get rid of the popup. Skating off the trouble spot
      activates another one. Skating off the picture leaves the last one up.

      If you can manage to get to the [x] closer, without triggering another
      popup and moving the closer, clicking it closes the popup. Then your
      mouse is stuck in a mine-field, and you must skate out faster than the
      DHTML can detect your move to avoid another popup!

      I'm sure nobody has seen this AntiPattern before...
