    In California you would never be able to turn left without these independant signals. The ones without the left turn lights you have to go into the middle of the intersection until the lights turn red and the people stop running the red light. By that time the other direction has turned green and you're blocking traffic. God forbid if you're 2 or 3 cars back trying to turn left, you have to wait 2 or 3 cycles until you can sneak into the intersection or risk running a red light.

    So yesterday I'm on a 2 lane highway. Speed limit is 65 and I'm doing like 75 in the left lane. Some twat in the right lane suddenly (no blinker - they never use blinkers) cuts in front of me from the right lane because the guy in front of her was not moving as fast as her but she waited until she was right up on his ass before changing lanes. If she was at all aware of her surroundings she would have moved over to the left much sooner as there was nobody in the left lane in front of me. Then to top it off, she immediately cuts off the guy in the right lane that she just passed in order to exit the highway. It was like a quarter mile to the exit from where she cut us both off. WTF. I need some instant karma directed at these a-holes. Like a cop to see it and pull them over or a flat tire, something. My horn and finger just don't seem to satisfy. Wonder if I got a dash cam and submit the video of these people to the police if they'd ticket by mail or something. Just doesn't seem right that they get away with it.

    You just said you were doing 10 over the limit. Cops would not be on your side on this one.

    I think what the other poster meant was the ones that turn red and stay red while the lights to go straight are still green. They were like that in MO, and I hated it -- when I first moved there, I would just go ahead and turn left on red if it was clear. Then I noticed that nobody else did that. Here, they do turn red, but they switch back to flashing yellow as long as the light is green to go straight. That's the RIGHT way to do it.

    Is it still an unwritten rule in CA that 3 people get to turn left on red?

    Yeah, back in MO, you'd get those a-holes that need to exit and cut you off even though there is plenty of space behind you. It's like they just have to beat someone.

    It's a scientific fact that women do not have the same depth perception as men. This explains a lot of their driving. No offense, ladies.

    It was mentioned already, but it happens regularly and it's weird. Bunch of cars driving in the right lane to exit the freeway, all at the same speed, and I'm the last one. Nobody behind me.

    Another car comes fast on the second lane, squeezes into my lane in front of me, and hits the brakes because (s)he was going too fast. I have to brake, sometimes hard. Then that car exits the freeway with the rest of us.

    Why a f#$* didn't (s)he change the lane behind me, there was absolutely nobody there? There is nothing gained by cutting me off, maybe possibly a fender bender.

    What about this novel idea: plan your exit in advance?

    Sometimes 3, sometimes you're lucky if 2 cars make it through.

    That's very interesting. If it's really scientific, it explains a few things... I've noticed many times how women drivers react only to what's right in front of them. Almost like they pay less attention to the left and right lane (on a wide 3 lane street). It happens to guys too, but in my observations it's women a lot more often than men.

    98 in Walton county is the worst. 65 and they're doing 50.

    Its Florida... what do you expect?!

    And they just passed a law effective July 1st stating it's a fine now to drive with flashers or pull of to the side in heavy rain. Said too many unnecessary accidents occurred by this practice.

    All the ones here stay red. I wish they had those yellow ones you're talking about, but sometimes you need the other side to be red before you can even go. And no 3 cars cannot go on red lol

    It might just be because women tend to drive with the seat so far forward, they are only about 3 inches from the steering wheel. Sitting that close there is no room to move so you can look back at another lane.

    I have to deal with this every time I drive. It's the only way I can get off the island otherwise I have to make a pretty big detour.

    I don't know if anyone else has this problem in their state but here bay area in California, I'm starting to notice a lot more people scraping the reflective paint off their license plates. You just know that someone is going to run a camera red light, pass through a toll and not get charged or a ticket.

    A guy I used to work with years ago did this while he was collecting water samples in a marshland and only had a pair of sneakers on and somehow only got one foot wet and drove home with his foot out the window. This guy was also 6'4" and drove a little corolla so the photos were pretty funny to look at.

    people who cut in front of you than slow down
    people who are too much in a hurry to wait on line and tries to get to front of line than cut in almost causing accident and slowing down everyone else
    people who who are in middle lane or left lane than cut in front of everyone to get the exit on right
    people not stopping for stop signs or yield signs
    people who get on left of you when u stop at red light than light turns green and they take off and cut in front of you.
    people who almost hit you than yell and curse like its your fault.
    ohh ny drivers nowadays you would think they got their drivers license from gumball machine.

    I saw a car yesterday morning and one this morning running a red light, a solid two seconds after the light turned red. They passed through the intersection milliseconds before the other cars entered the intersection.

    One car was a Volvo, one a Lexus. Upper middle class in South OC late for work... so red light be damned.

    This morning an ambulance was coming from behind. A black Nissan didn't want to pull over because he wanted to make a left. The ambulance was behind him, lights, siren, honking... and nothing. The Nissan wasn't in a hurry at all. He made a left and only then was the ambulance able to take off.

    I guess with age we mellow over the STUPID F@#KS that drive the roads with us...:p

    Yesterday, a nice Douche canoe is running his phone minutes up and realizes he is 2 lanes over for a right turn; swings his car aggressively towards my "safe space" NOT.... gets all pissy and tries a swerve to bump move :rofl::rofl::rofl: about $hit when I didn't move :D then falls into line ,horn blaring and lights a flashing.....I politely BRAKE checked him---HARD....we enter the on ramp and he tries Nascar :burnrubber:… not going to work with this Old Man.... as we merge onto I-75 he goes by and was probably going to do something STUPID o_O but saw my phone in hand ; recording for future events :boink:

    The NEWEST trend on the I-75 race track is collecting lane changes just to be 1st in line..... These fools get pissed when the far left is NOT GOING 90+ and start the "sway"...…


    Today my GPS told me of a "police event" 2 miles up and my cruise control dropped back to 74 MPH, next thing we see is a blue Benz "just a swaying" until he reaches a Semi at 68, me at 74 and the outside lane just a bit faster... This lil $hit flashes his lights at me :rofl::rofl:...I of course speed up...NOT dropped to 72 and watched a tantrum start..... my neighbor in the next lane sees "the show" and signals me to move over into the 3rd lane BUT traps Benz where he is :devil:... we both SMILE :) when Benz' makes a break for it.....right in front of a Trooper....Red and Blue lights reflect nicely off Blue Benz's :fistbump:

    Enough Venting, we are not even "In season" yet... these are all locals :annoyed::argue: :hattip:

    Speaking of season, wait till it starts rainging a lot, then snowflakes start flying...people literally forget how to drive...
