    AirZounds!!! wakes 'em right up.

    BTW the idiot driver apparently did not realize you can complete a left on a red light, as long as you are out there before the yellow.

    I can't stand when people are out in the intersection and then decide they have to back up when the light changes.

    Or the people who don't pull out in the first place but sit behind the line when it's a Yield on Green for left turns.

    as a young man I drove a Good Humor ice cream truck one summer. we had a golden rule, "never back up" it seems now a days the rear windows of vehicles are either blacked out or the view is obstructed by "clever" aerodynamic designs. I think drivers are just used to not seeing out the back, so maybe they should disable reverse in general. drivers seems incapable of operating in that direction, so take it away from them.

    pretty funny we all know his plate number now ...

    i think it has more to do with the fact that the majority of people in the world are idiots.

    If there is any risk of a right hook I filter or lane split to the front and put myself in front of the first car in line.
