If the power is out treat it as an all way stop, seems no one understands wtf to do, they think flooring it or slamming on the brakes is the best thing to do.

x2

Saturday night we were driving through lansing and there was a light out and a cop sitting at the intersection with lights going. The car ahead of me blew right through it and the car beside/behind me did too. I stopped. The cop didn't care.

Left at 5 minutes to 7 AM, didn't get to work until 8:15 AM. 18 mile drive. A lot of people taking liberty in riding someone's ass to try and get through the light. People are ruthless inconsiderate assholes. Makes me wonder what will happen when all of us will need to band together come Armageddon.

Drive in Detroit. We do it when the lights are working. Matter of fact if the sidewalk is clear it is a turn lane. That goes for using the shoulder as a passing lane.

x3 people have no clue when it comes to a outed traffic signal. usually it is mass panic.
what kills me is how people fear the left turn. why? when your side of traffic goes turn.

I would just be happy if people could learn to drive at all. Turn signals, more than 3ft gaps between cars, look before you switch lanes, red means the other lane is going to be coming at you when you go............It makes me not want to go to work and deal with the idiots on the way there. Not to mention if I have to go to Meijer or Walmart, all the idiots do the same thing inside with their carts except they don't need turn signals.

Well when they get all 'gangster' hand hold that 9 sidways, I hold mine the right way and we'll see who wins.


BTW, I do believe thats what would happen but I still just try to drive around and not say anything.
I have kids I like to come home to.

I like to go to the range with my pants all sagging and when the range instructor orders us to fire I hold my shit all sideways and yell "boo-yow dog!" or "What you say now bitch?!!" while I'm shooting. It adds a touch of realism to what I'm doing. Then, after I re-holster my gun I flash a couple gang signs and dance to imaginary rap music.

I'm not sure which is worse, the people that go right through the non-functional lights without even slowing down, or the people that insist on coming to a full and complete stop and sit there with a confused look on their faces waiting to see if the entire world will come to a grinding halt before they slowly and timidly roll across the intersection.

If theres no cross traffic, GO
