gaper's delay Search for pronunciation examples


The traffic delay resulting from a roadside accident or similar spectacle. Derived from drivers' gaping behavior when driving near an accident. Heard on the air in Chicago.
We've got a gaper's delay on the Eisenhower - a 40-foot tall puppuet is gesticulating madly at the drivers. That'll add half an hour to your drive today.
