Driving to work takes me through an intersection in which my two-lane road widens out to 5 lanes through the intersection and then narrows back to two lanes on the other side.
Though the intersection is designed so that both lanes can go straight, everyone uses the right lane as a turn lane. No one uses it to go straight.
This a.m. as the traffic light was green, traffic moved slowly for some reason - which makes drivers impatient.
As the light turned yellow, I had to stop. But the guy in front of me bolted into the right lane and drew even with the car in front of him. The light turned red as they're passing beneath it. He then slipped back into the last place in line on the other side.
Classic Miss-and-Out sprint. I hoped for a referee to tell me to pull out so I wouldn't have to go to work.
