Time for some ranting

I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one knows how to drive in this country (USA) anymore. I live in Connecticut and there is an epidemic of people running red lights. And I am not talking about just turned red as they were going thru. I am talking about the light being green on my side for 2 to 3 seconds and these assholes are still whizzing thru the intersection. And it is not just one intersection and not just a few cars, it is all the time! The crazy part is that other drivers know about this problem and wait at the green light for a few seconds before going.

And somehow I have not witnessed a single accident. That is what blows my mind. Sometimes there is a whole line of cars that does it. Boggles my brain every time I see it happen.

Another frustrating thing are pedestrians that walk across the street at any old time without even looking to see if there are cars coming at them. Use the crosswalk and look to see if you are going to be hit by a car before you cross. Especially don't run across the road at night. I cannot see you and I will go to prison for vehicular manslaughter.

If you live in Connecticut, please don't be either of these assholes. Good day.

It's a far less common problem where I live but you still get the occasional idiot who just runs out into the road after SEEING there is a car coming at them. I don't know what parents and driving schools are teaching these days but it sure isn't the rules of the road as I know them.

Here we have drivers who see you coming and wait until you are almost upon them before pulling out in front of you. Or the famous come to a complete stop before making that right turn.

We have a lot of idiocy like that around here too. The epidemic in my neighborhood is no one actually stopping at 4 way stops. So I'll come to a 4 way stop, stop for a few seconds, and then start on my way through the intersection and at that point some idiot will come barreling through and almost slam into me. Best of all, of course, is when they blare the horn like I'M the asshole.

Ahhh, yes, it's so annoying. It all boils down to selfishness. They want to get ahead and they don't care about silly things like laws or other people. I have a really hard time driving and not getting upset.

In Canada, we actually have a delay for the light to turn green. So all are red for 3 seconds before the other way turns green. Yup, now people still go through that as well!! Just like what you are dealing with! I also hate when people have an advanced green and the people will keep going through even when it is no longer an advance and take my time away from getting through the intersection. There are more people in Toronto getting hit by cars and I believe it is because they are walking across while texting. My other big beef are people who are slowly coming out of a driveway before I have even passed them! Oooh don't get me started!!! They are idiots until proven otherwise

That's why most states request you wait at least 3 seconds before going after a green light. My dad got in wreck like that, and they said it was his fault.

Sad to say, there are assholes like that all over the country.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I grew up in Connecticut.

Assholes are everywhere.....
