I wish there were some widely known hand signal that meant "This is a No Turn on Red intersection I am not going to turn."

 

I share this frustration, but more so when there are pedestrians in the cross-walk, directly in the path of where my car will be going when it moves.  I will not be running them over  to placate you, driver behind me!  I'm also a fan of being tailgated because, while I am driving at the same speed as the cars in front of me, I am not tailgating them.  Obviously, the seven tenths of a second you will save by being 100 m farther down the road, but driving the same speed, are important enough to tailgate me, and then pass me in an unsafe fashion.

I don't experience that as much as the idiot who sits at a red light (w/ legal turn on red) and for the life of him can't make the f'g turn. Just sits there like an asshat.

This pisses me off. And since I live in Philly, I am pissed off pretty much every day I drive.

Then there are the people who don't know you can make a left turn on red when both the streets are one-way.

Unrelated, but I had a guy today tailgating me while I was passing a truck. I was doing about 68 in a 55. Once I pass the truck, I try to get far enough in front of the truck to safely move over instead of cutting the truck off. Even though I had my blinker on, the guy is so damned impatient he cuts the truck off to try to get around me to the right. I don't like getting into road rage, but I broke my own rule and quickly moved over to the right to basically cut him off.

Here only the street you're turning onto has to be one way, because you aren't crossing any oncoming lanes of traffic.  Many people don't know it.

 

Another favourite, while we're on the subject, is the way British Columbians (1) take 3 minutes to notice a light has turned green, especially an advanced green, and (2) don't start making a left turn on an advanced green until the guy in front of them is all the way through the intersection.  So, instead of 8 or 9 cars getting through a light, it's 3 or 4.

generally most idiots unfortunately have driver's licenses... this seems not to be a concern of the DMV. a significant portion of drivers has no idea how to effectively operate a motor vehicle and I could go on and on with examples. one day soon I will have a driver to deal with this crap. happy.gif

Loud typers should be summarily executed. There is nothing worse in a cramped office environment. Well, microwaved fish is worse.

Microwaved anything is shit. Bring a sandwich or go out to eat. There's no excuse to microwave anything other than a cup of water for tea.

Neither do I. Maybe I should get one so that I can have warm sandwiches like they make at subway.
