DonaldSmith Posted November 30, 2022 Report Share Posted November 30, 2022 Maybe I'm old and cranky, but some things that the driver(s) in front of me do, irritate me. "Complete Left Turn when Traffic Clears" Car ahead of me in the left lane. We are waiting for oncoming traffic to clear. "Pull into the Intersection!", I yell. "If you pull into the intersection and the light changes, you have the right of way and can complete your turn!" "And maybe I'll get to turn." They can't hear me, and if I honk, they will get flustered. I get really flustered if the light turns red, and we couldn't move. Maybe some states forbid pulling into the intersection. Maybe the driver is a college kid from some other state. "Left lane closed 2 miles ahead". An interstate highway. So many people immediately switch lanes, I guess to get it over with. I'm the type that will stay in the left lane until the last minute. People get mad when I finally try to pull over into line. A recent example had three lanes merging into two and then one. Two empty lanes for a few miles - go for it! Why tell the drivers which lane will be closed? Maybe the signs should say, "Lane closure 2 miles ahead. Stay in your lane." Then "Merge Zone. Lane closed ahead, Merge right." Or maybe the orange cones will show which way to merge. Stopping at the red light. Some cars hold back one, two, or even three car lengths. "Move ahead; close it up! There's cars back there that are trying to get in this lane!" The light turns green, and there's no motion ahead of me. "Wake up." After a few seconds I give the car a quick beep. Not a mad honk, just a reminder to get moving. If no reaction, longer beeps. There. I've vented. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
