Review: WebTrafficSchool.com

I've used WebTrafficSchool.com twice before, and have been very happy with it both times. Unfortunately, I just used it for a third time, and it's gone south fast. I will not use it again.

There are now mandatory reading times--you must spend eight minutes with each section, regardless of how fast you can read it and/or fully comprehend the material. I've completed the entire course in two hours before, but now it will take double or triple that duration. Furthermore, there are interstitial videos sponsored by commercial entities. I just paid you money for this course--I'm not the least interested in experiencing the wonders of driving cell-phone free, as sponsored by Cingulair. I'm spitting mad, and for fuck's sake, do I really need a lecture on the miracle of voicemail as a technique for preventing distracted driving. Bitter. I am bitter.
