Do you want to know what stated all this bad bad behavior on the road? I'll tell you! RIGHT TURN ON RED once you had to sit and wait for the light to change. Now the whole world is sliding to a none stop, if they are slowing down at all before turning right. Most of them are not even slowing down, to keep appearances up. They just go on and turn.Do you know what this leads to??? Drivers not waiting behind the car in front of them to make there turn so they can go straight. They just try to go around them. And do you know what happens then? They hit the car making the turn the other way. This is not what we were all taught to do in drivers ed. Cut some one off GO AHEAD, need to get in next lane? CUT THEM OFF! I live on a one lane street. The street has traffic calmers. You need to go 25 miles a hour if you do not want to bottom out. This is convenient, as the speed limit is also 25 miles a hour. I drive 25 miles a hour. At least 4 times a week some one tries to go around me only to meet a parked car. I know it is only a matter of time before I'm hit or someone else is. The city of Alexandria is over 200 hundred years old, as such we have *five funeral homes. Call any one of them and they will tell you that at least once a week one funeral procession is disrupted by someone cutting in to the procession. I hope it is a driver who does not notice that a funeral is taking place.But, I; know some of them DO. I know they know a funeral is going on THEY JUST DO NOT CARE! That's right! their needs are more important then the those of a grieving family. They are just oh so special.
RIGHT TURN ON RED It started one slippery slid down a filthy, jagged, mold covered putrid slop of rude, inconsiderate, no thank you card writing, don't visit your Grandmother in the convalescent home behavior.
Or I just might be having a bad day.
