Do driving Special Snowflakes just leave their brains at home? Yesterday there was almost a collision right in front of us, when a nitwit yacking on a hand-held cellphone, in the left-turn lane, decided to go straight ahead instead. Straight ahead had a red light, because oncoming traffic was also
turning left. Nitwit darned near broadsided another car. ('Darned' is not the word I'd like to use, but the filter won't let me use that other 'd' word.) He didn't even brake; the other car managed to scoot faster, and the one following him managed to brake in time. SS just sailed on through without noticing, because his phone call was SOOOO important.
