Maddest I've ever been behind the wheel of a car. Cars block the intersection in front of our work exit... FYI: The light cycle on my side is 2m 30 sec so I got to have a 6 minute wait at the stoplight today. About lost my damn mind.

A) Did they realize you are traffic safety champion award recipient?
B) I didn't see a blocked intersection, just an opportunity for creative off-axis, lane borrowing.

You will enjoy that at Jersey City. Lots and lots of that situation there.

Leo's in your city don't ticket for that. That is real bad in Moore, Ok and the leos are all over it. You can catch them daily on 19th street monitoring daily.

I hate stupid people. All they have to do is hang back and go once traffic moves. Buuuuut, they only care about themselves. No one else matters.

When I would pick up the kids in middle school. They had 2 lines. IF the resource officer wasn't there, the one line would never let the other go.

Dude...there was a HUGE amount of open pavement to your left. And NO oncoming traffic. You didn't HAVE to keep sitting there.
Very true... however that is the only exit from our building and everyone around me was employees. And as previously stated, I'm a safety champion. I have to Bruce Wayne that sh!t out the driveway at least. If the next cycle ended up the same way I was going to motion the guy on my left to drive around it but fortunately we never got to that point.

Technically that would not have been on company property but the "company" doesn't play around with semantics so I keep my horseplay far off the reservation.

No doubt, I would have done a smokey drift around those selfish dbags.

You're the hero your company needs, not the one it deserves.

Tons of selfish drivers out on the roads today. Most of them can't even use their turn signal either.

Don't even get me started on the whole school drop-off/pick-up situation at my daughter's school. Everytime effing time, there is at least one or two clueless people in their own little bubble preventing others from leaving the lot or blocking the drop-off lane.

I got stuck in two full light cycles behind some dumbass who wouldn't turn right because his preferred lane around the corner wasn't open. In the 2nd cycle, I'm surprised I didn't burn out my horn. When the light went green for the third time I pulled around him in a completely juvenile smokey display of 485 HP. The look on his face was priceless, just glad it didn't cost me a big ticket.

Since I've had half a lifetime's experience dealing with Boston traffic, the thing to do is drive out into the intersection and get in FRONT of that last car and sit there. See how they like it.

Same crap happens at this one particular intersection in Queens (one of many many intersections). They block the entire thing and you're stuck forever..... I end up going on the wrong side of the street to pass

Actually that was in Sugar Land Texas which is a big conservative enclave in SW Houston. There's more guns here than kids. And there's a ton of kids.
