Met two yesterday on the way home - one minor one (flashing his lights at me, in the right lane, while I'm driving both at the speed limit and have half the cars in the state ahead of me?) and then.... SSTurnusLeftusNOW!
I drive a two lane road (over the dam, and down through a residential area) home from work most days. At one point, where I turn left, it intersects with another, very busy, two lane road. There's a light, but it's just a standard red yellow green (no turn signal), and about 1/2 of the approaching traffic at the intersection is turning left, the other half continuing straight across. MANY people don't use turn signals. The prevailing manners at that spot, because the traffic coming from my direction is light, and mostly turning left, is that you wait for the traffic coming from the other direction to clear before you turn, because... safety. I was the first car at the light, and had the feeling when I'd stopped that the guy behind me had wanted me to run the light so he could, too (parked REALLY CLOSE, and had come to a very sudden, jerking stop - the speed limit is 25 on the road, but he was going far faster than that, as he'd not been behind me for quite some time and then suddenly was righttherenexttomybumper). The light turns green, and the *first car* from the other side, happened to be turning left. The second one was coming straight across, though, and there were about 10 cars waiting to come through the intersection across from me. As I normally do (and so has virtually every car I've seen there, coming the way I was, since I started driving that way) I was waiting for the traffic across to clear. The light is quite long, and even after waiting it out, there's time for a half dozen cars from the direction I was coming to go through, safely. Next thing I know, he's blowing his horn, long bursts, and revving his engine. I'm sitting there baffled, and still waiting for the traffic across to clear, when he comes roaring out from behind me, into the wrong lane, blows through the intersection (nearly hitting a car that was coming straight across) and tears off down the road. Then the car behind me blows his horn a couple of times, further confusing me, and (I admit) I started waving at the traffic across from me, as if to say "gee, don't you SEE THE CARS???". Finally, after a string of three cars that came straight across the intersection, the traffic clears, and I turn left. The car behind me calmed down when they realized how much traffic there had been (apparently he just got angry because he heard a horn??). However, the SS wasn't done - he was just ahead of me (the car immediately ahead of me, in fact) when I got to the next stop light, at an intersection with a large road (4 lanes). The road I was on turns into 4 lanes at that point too, so there was a new lane to the left of the one I was in. Mr. SS decides to change lanes, in the intersection, and squeeze his HUGE jeep into the space between two cars in the left lane, which was barely one car length. The car behind the space he jumped into was a company truck, and the poor guy had to slam on his brakes - I can only imaging how much trouble he'd have been in, getting into a wreck in his company truck.
Some people need to be sedated for our safety before getting in a car.
