Editor: I'm so tired of sitting for three or four lights just to get from Colgate Drive in Forest Hill to entrance to the Bel Air by-pass near McDonald's. There are signs that say right lane closed merge left, but no one adheres to it. They will wait to get all the way down to the light at the old C Mart and try and squeeze into the left lane, while those who adhere to getting into the left lane when directed have to sit for light after light. If you don't let them in, they will get right at your bumper so you have no choice; either let them in or you have a fender bender.

A man working inside a rowhouse near Camden Yards was trapped under tons of debris for several hours Monday after the back of the building collapsed, Baltimore fire officials said. Rescue workers pulled the victim — who suffered life-threatening injuries — from the home at 528 S. Paca St. about 4:30 p.m. The building collapsed about noon, but crews spent hours attempting to secure the structure. During the rescue, officials shut down a portion of Russell Street, snarling traffic south of downtown.

Drivers were amply warned about lane closures on the Jones Falls Expressway and the resulting traffic jams ("Drivers find delays on JFX," April 17). Even still, I noticed that all the 20 cars in the photograph accompanying The Sun's article on the subject appeared to have just one occupant, a driver. In addition to alternate routes, people should consider another alternative - carpooling! Terry Callanan

The Ravens are approaching the time when they'll need to focus on getting backup running back Bernard Pierce the bulk of the workload in advance of starter Ray Rice's two-game suspension. The balancing act between how the Ravens should divide carries between Pierce and Rice is expected to become more of a hot-button issue heading into their third preseason game next week against the Washington Redskins. The third preseason game is when the Ravens traditionally play the starters into the third quarter since they won't play in the fourth and final preseason game prior to the start of the regular season.

Two lanes of Interstate 95 north in Baltimore were closed after a pedestrian was struck by a dump truck just before 5 p.m. Wednesday. The pedestrian suffered serious injuries and was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The driver of the truck carrying gravel also suffered minor injuries and was taken to Hopkins Bayview. Two northbound lanes had been closed near O'Donnell Street, said Sgt. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transit Authority. Police were able to talk to the pedestrian, but have not determined why they were walking on the highway.

(From the Getting There blog ) The State Highway Administration has released a short list of the worst of the worst backups that bedeviled drivers Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. The list does not include the Jones Falls Expressway in Baltimore, one of the most severely affected roads, because it is maintained by the city Department of Transportation. Prudent motorists will file these locations away mentally because the same characteristics that turned them into parking lots could crop up again in a future snowstorm.

The Ravens caught a big break by missing out on playing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger , who is serving the final game of his four-game suspension. But beating his replacement, Charlie Batch , hasn't been as easy as some would think. Since joining the Steelers in 2002, Batch is 4-1 as their fill-in starter. He is coming off a win at Tampa Bay, where he completed 12 of 17 passes for 186 yards and three touchdowns. "He's a guy who has won a lot of games, started a lot of games and has so much success," coach John Harbaugh said.

James Ihedigbo and Chris Johnson aren't household names -- well, maybe the latter is, but we're not talking about the Tennessee Titans running back -- but the pair of reserves helped the Ravens escape Heinz Field with a 13-10 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night. Johnson stripped wide receiver Mike Wallace after catching a 15-yard pass in the first quarter, setting up a 26-yard field goal by rookie Justin Tucker. Ihedigbo sacked quarterback Byron Leftwich to thwart Pittsburgh's penultimate possession in the fourth quarter.

Inspectors will begin examining small sewer lines leading to at least 9,000 homes in Baltimore under a new five-year initiative Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is set to announce Tuesday. The Department of Public Works is expected to begin the inspections in North Baltimore's Idlewood neighborhood in the coming weeks. Inspectors will use cameras to check for blockages in the lateral lines that connect underground pipes from houses to the sewer system. The workers won't need access to homeowners' properties, nor will the inspections involve tearing up streets or sidewalks, said Jeffrey Raymond, a public works spokesman.

Motorists heading back to Baltimore on Monday from the Eastern Shore after the first long holiday weekend of the summer became snarled in traffic that mostly was stop and stop for most of the evening. The Bay Bridge hotline reported that as of 11:30 p.m. Monday, there were no backups on the bridge or approaching it - an improvement over the eight-mile backup reported earlier. mary.mccauley@baltsun.com

The Ravens nearly had to replace Joe Flacco in the lineup late last season when the usually durable starting quarterback was hobbled with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Although Flacco managed to gut out the final two games of the regular season and avoid missing a start for the first time in six seasons, the situation offered a reminder that the Ravens need a viable contingency plan should their franchise quarterback ever be sidelined. With current backup Tyrod Taylor displaying mixed results in spot action and entering the final year of his rookie contract, the Ravens are exploring the possibility of drafting a quarterback this year.

After graduating from Walkersville High School in Frederick County and enrolling at Loyola, Brian Schultz did not have any preconceived notions about his status or playing time. “I came from a small school, and I didn't have too many expectations,” he recalled. “I didn't think I was going to be an immediate impact player, and I knew that coming into Loyola. I knew it was an opportunity to play at the highest level, and that was what I wanted.” Schultz, however, has shed those reservations in an emphatic way. In his first year as a starting attackman, Schultz ranks second on the top-ranked Greyhounds (11-1 overall and 7-0 in the Patriot League)

Ravens coach John Harbaugh briefly spoke to reporters at the team facility Tuesday, reiterating several things that he said at last week's NFL owners meetings. The team is still active on the free-agent market and remains in talks with the representatives of free-agent tight ends Ed Dickson and Owen Daniels. Harbaugh acknowledged that cornerback Corey Graham, who signed last month with the Buffalo Bills, was a significant loss, and while he has confidence in Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson, the Ravens are also looking to add another cornerback.

Curtis Painter is all too familiar with the fleeting nature of job security in the NFL. In the span of less than a full calendar year, Painter went from backing up Peyton Manning to replacing the Hall of Fame-bound quarterback to being unceremoniously released by the Indianapolis Colts. That's why he's not putting too much stock into the sentiment that he has outperformed Tyrod Taylor in the Ravens' first two preseason games. "I think it's a little too soon to jump to those conclusions, but I think for me, I just want to keep getting better each time," Painter said Sunday.

Heavy traffic that had earlier caused backups of up to 19 miles from the Bay Bridge had completely dissipated by late Monday night. There were no backups in either direction, according to information on the Maryland Transportation Authority's recorded hotline. Officials predicted more than 300,000 vehicles would travel the Bay Bridge over the holiday weekend, but as Labor Day winded down, it appeared everyone was trying to leave the Eastern Shore at the same time. On Monday afternoon, the Maryland Department of Transportation said delays stretched 19 miles on westbound U.S. 50 from Route 404. An accident involving a plane that crashed along the highway in Bowie did not help matters, leading to lane closures and further backups to allow for a Medivac.

A three-year state audit of the Maryland Transportation Authority found significant problems with how the organization handles purchases and an inadequate "disaster recovery plan" if its E-ZPass toll collection system fails. The authority, which operates state toll facilities and transportation infrastructure such as the Chesapeake Bay Bridge for the Maryland Department of Transportation, said it is addressing the issues. The report, released Wednesday by the state's Office of Legislative Audits, reviewed the agency's operations between January 2010 and March 2013.

Maryland reserve linebacker Abner Logan has been suspended through the end of the semester for an undisclosed violation of team rules, coach Randy Edsall said Wednesday. Edsall also said backup defensive lineman Nate Clarke underwent knee surgery this week and "I don't think he'll be ready for the season. " There was better news on the injury front from top receivers Deon Long and Stefon Diggs, who have spent the offseason recovering from lower-leg fractures suffered sustained Oct. 19 at Wake Forest.
