Given how many gross and stinky people I've had to work around over the years (let's face it: even one is too damn many) who could have DESPERATELY used something along these lines, I'm gonna need some details to damn this one for me.

I hate driving home from work this time of year when it gets dark before 5. I drive an hour home and each time I see at least a half dozen dipshits that fail to put their lights on when its basically pitch black out.

Yep. Plus the last couple of days it's been super foggy and dumbasses are driving around with their brights on in the horsefeathering fog. Idiots.

The other day I accidentally cut off some random guy. I was turning right on a green turn arrow, he was running a yellow and I pulled out in front of him. He then proceeded to follow me into the parking lot where he screamed obscenities from his truck. He called me a [expletive] and dropped a bunch of the other F word. I was wrong to cut that guy off and felt bad at first but now I wish I could go back in time and cut him off on purpose because horsefeathers that guy, like he never accidentally cut anyone off before.

If you had a green arrow you didn't cut him off. What kind of convoluted system has green right turn arrows running concurrently with cross streets on yellow?

I got into an altercation awhile back with some idiotic high school kid. I was turning right on a solid green light, he was coming from opposite direction to turn left with no green left turn arrow obviously. He proceeded to turn as I turned and we almost collided. He was screaming at me, I just told him " people turning left always have to yield to people turning right when there is no arrow, its one of the first things you learn in drivers ed" He let out about 10 f bombs and sped off after the next intersection.

Was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt but yeah, he must have been.

In this day and age, no one who uses gay slurs against someone deserves the benefit of anything.

This took me awhile to adjust to when I lived in STL, but the drivers there believed the car making the left turn had the right of way. So dumb

17-year-old kid t-boned me at an intersection last week, I've only had the Civic for 2 years, the entire front and back passenger side doors are totaled.

Dealing with insurance and having to wait until Feb 5 to get it repaired is a pain in the ass. I actually don't mind the crash as much.

this has always amazed me. Like, dashboards don't light up unless you have your lights on, right? At least every vehicle I've ever owned it's been that way.

Are they just driving around in darkness with no idea what speed they are doing? What kind of monsters are these people?
