Needless to say he wasn't able to do it quickly as cars sped past, in both directions. His actions caused frustration and irritation with many drivers, until eventually someone got out their car to explain to the guy that he was doing something illegal and that in the process, he was causing a back-log of traffic.
In my mind, this is exactly what sin does - it causes havoc for a whole lot of people, not just the person steering the 'vehicle.' I may think that my actions are personal and only influencing my world, but I don't always see the trail of destruction that is left behind. For this reason, God doesn't condone sin - it destroys the sinner, as well as impacting innocent bystanders.
Romans 2:5 - But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself.
