Sometimes a road might be the only remotely decent option, and then the light turns green and you have to dodge traffic. A few years back there was such an incident here, with fatal results. A light twin lost both engines 5km from the airport, attempted a street landing, and aborted off to the side of the road at the last minute. There was a thread about it at the time, where I posted a google maps link showing the location.
