Twinkle, twinkle…

October 22, 2010

So the other day I am sat at the lights in the car, which are red as usual and I notice that in the left turn lane opposite, the turn signals of the four cars waiting to turn are flashing in unison.

Immediately I think “what are the chance of that happening?”, then I think, “what are the chances that FOUR cars in line are actually using their turn signals?”.

Still not sure which is the more amazing!

Waiting at the lights this morning to turn left. Cross traffic lights turn red and just as they do a medium sized truck drives through on the tail end of the yellow.
Unfortunately for him (or her) there was a trooper in the opposite lane who had stopped at the light. Off he peeled and the last I saw in my mirror as I drove away was his blue lights coming on behind the truck.

I know we all push the yellow but is your life worth the two minutes or so you might have to wait for it to change back to green, and what about the poor sod you might hit by pushing through a red.

Sorry. No sympathy here.
