Gotta give some of them the benifit of the doubt... Not all are jerks just to be jerks, just not all that smart.

When you become a parent your behavior change, when you have near accidents your behavior change. For some it never change.

But if you change One person's thinking, you might save one other person. OR,,, maybe a car load of people. Do you have no hope at all?

Dilworth, between Springfield and Harvey

To me this is one of the worst areas to get constantly and blatantly cut off.

I do not get the concept of staying in the left lane till the last possible second before jamming in to the right lane
to turn right onto Harvey.

I'm pretty sure that the people that do this know ahead of time that the want to go right at Harvey, and
it is not just a error in judgement but, a disregard and disrespect to all others that are
unfortunate enough to be in the area.

STOP IT!!!!!!!

Yer beyond Idiot status!!!!!!!!!

Heading towards the Baron Rd/Leckie intersection today (coming from Springfield)...

To the dark red vehicle (Nissan Exterra I believe it was) who went clear through a solid red light (heading west on Baron)...you are an idiot!!

A car was waiting for the intersection to clear to complete their left-hand turn from Baron onto Leckie (towards 97). This red vehicle decided that after the car made its turn, that they were still able to go right through the red light. Not only that but a man who was crossing Leckie (on a walk-signal) from the Safeway corner was almost completely creamed!

I was waiting at the lights by the airport this morning. The through lights were red and then the left turn arrow lit up so matey thought it was a go and drove ahead almost taking out the car making the legitimate left turn in front of him then continued on into Winfield like nothing was wrong. The more i see these idiots and their total disregard for traffic lights the more i realize that no amount of advance turns or flashing warnings will help.

So this person was supposed to drive like something was wrong? How should one drive if they've made a mistake and run a red light?

Getting off the road if they cant handle it would be a great start,,, likely this is normal for this guy so he probably doesnt even know he done anything wrong,,, thats the bad thing about it.

"Make a mistake"? Is that what it was, just a little old mistake, could happen to anyone.
Lets be very very clear here..........running a red light is NOT a mistake it is exceptionally bad driver error and that driver shouldn't be driving if he cannot distinguish between a through green and a red stop. It is simply not something that should be happening. Lets make no mistake here people have been killed because of red light runners.
