I took a different way home last night, because of an errand, and had an encounter with a car. I was confident in my opinion of fault (car) until I described it to my husband and now I am reconsidering. I will try to explain briefly.
Picture a T-intersection. I am moving horizontally along the top of the T, the car was coming up vertically to a stop sign and intending to turn right. As I approached the intersection, there was a paedestrian crossing to the right of the car and the car stopped for them, BUT it was way past the stop line, obviously waiting til the paedestrian was far enough to keep going right. I felt I had the right of way, dinged my bell and passed ahead of the car, as the driver became visibly upset. I called out, "You have a stop sign!" and continued straight. THe car turned right behind me, then a block away swung around the round-about to yell at me "If you want to use that thing on the road you need to learn the rules of the road!" I smiled and called back, "You had a stop sign, sir!" doing my best to keep my tone light. THen he yelled something about stopping for the paedestrian, but at that point I was ready to go and called out "have a nice evening!" and left.
My husband's point is that the motorist already stopped at the stop sign, then was turning right and stopped for the paedestrian. at the time, I felt he was in a position where he should have yielded the right of way to me.
I guess no one can say who was right, since you all weren't there. But I just needed to mention this since it was bothering me. I guess he was upset that I went on ahead of him, and right or wrong, by chasing after me and yelling, he used up even more time than just waiting and letting me go. Oh well....
