Red lights are optional?
Ok-yesterday we decided to take the girls pumpkin picking. So we are sitting at the light in a major intersection when we get the green arrow. Not one,not two,not even three but four friggin' cars run the light! Next intersection 2 more cars in both directions run the light. Next light only one cars runs it but a second car halfway through his decision to run it changes his mind and stops-an entire car lane over the line! When did red lights become optional? Did I just not get the memo? My theory is this-you may runs a light for 3 reasons 1. There is a person in your car about to push a smaller person out of them 2. The person who has been on your bumper for miles will drive right through you if you stop 3. Your ass is literally on fire. Other than that stop at a red light.You'll still get to wherever it is you are rushing to- only if you stop you have a better chance of getting there alive. My husband thinks it's just a New York thing-I disagree. I believe disregard for traffic laws knows no state borders.
