People who would come in 3rd in a 2 horse race.........

What is it with people who can't stand to wait 3 seconds while someone in front of them is making a turn.....I mean they'll literally drive over the double yellow lines and over someone's lawn to avoid having to wait a couple of seconds......are we that impatient as a society or do people think their lives are so important that they need to put someone else's at risk? Come on folks......HB

It's all about courtesy, isn't it?  We are talking about two different discourteous people, in most cases.

Case in point:

I am behind a Camry driver in a left turn lane, which proceeds onto a two lane road, but has a widened portion just after the turn, to allow people to turn into a shopping center.

The Camry driver is OBLIVIOUS, naturally, and doesn't get moving when the light changes.  They drive agonizingly slowly, where they are leaving other people stuck at that light for another cycle.

Now, the driver behind me is a cop.  What does THIS driver do?  While I am steaming about the Camry driver in front of me, who I am indeed waiting for, the cop hammers it into the right lane, no signal, and passes both of us on the right before lurching back left just in front of the parked cars that were going to block his path.  Dangerous, discourteous, asinine, and unacceptable.  I started to lean on the horn until I saw the police markings.

If that Toyota driver had simply shown the common courtesy to pay attention and move through the intersection, not one bit of any of that would have happened.  If the cop had simply shown the common courtesy to wait despite the inept driver's obstructing traffic, the danger would also have been averted.

Neither thing happened.

oddjob, that sounds EXACTLY like a typical Camry driver from the Bay. I cringe each and every time I'm behind a Camry driver now and they never prove me wrong to how oblivious they are.
