On the work today, on the scooter, had a green light that was double green. Got a horn toot from behind but was watching a gal in a SUV not slowing down. Yep, you guessed it, blew through the red light like it wasn't there. Early in the morning not everyone is awake. Plus this is a college town and she must have been up all night for exams or just not familar with the area. She had parking stickers for U of U. Dang lady, this could have been our worst day ever!

Glad you were paying attention.
As always, it pays to look if someone is coming through even if you have a green.

At one point had to dive between two cars at a red light, always watch your six and all of the points of the clock. Smitty knows the rules. Never,ever, position yourself into a pile up at something as simple as a red light.

Glad you were more then wide awake.

Just yesterday on my Subaru Forester I came to this stupid round-about, to stop & also noticed no other cages on the other part of the round-about, but an eldely woman sort of walking in the walk-away.  I got the horn from some idiot & threw up my arms like I could not move at his want to get trotting, but a bit after he must has seen the elderly person staggeing along with a cane.

So had I jumped the horn I would be probably in charge of hitting an elderly pedestrain & honestly I felt not being excited to move was proven there & then.

Wonder if the idot behind me that hit the horn, actually had the light come on in his sio called brain?



Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
