Yesterday DH, the kids and I were on our way home from my mom's house. We were driving down the highway going about 50 mph. We were coming up to an intersection, but since it wasn't a stale green light DH didn't slow down. There were a few cars on the right side of the intersection waiting to turn right onto the highway. The highway in front of us was clear, so if any one of the cars had wanted to turn they had had ample opportunity to do so. I'm sure you all know where this is going--just as we entered the intersection a car waiting to turn zipped out directly in front of us. Thankfully she floored it and thankfully DH was able to move into the next lane, so we didn't rear end her. (When we pulled up next to the car at the next light, we saw it was a young late teens/early twenties woman, so I know it was a her.) I said "I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she's got an emergency and is going to the hospital or something, even though I know she's not going to the hospital because it's back the way she came."
The next set of lights was in front of a large shopping center. It was red for us and for the right turn lane she was in, but she zoomed down into the center in front of several other cars turning from the other direction and ran the first red light inside the shopping center. At that point it was 3:55, so we figured that she had almost caused at least a few serious accidents so she wouldn't be late to work. I hope she didn't drive the way she did just to go shopping.
