Drivers takes his half out of the middle

Aug

I really hate it when I am trying to turn into a parking lot and the guy who is trying to leave is taking up the whole entrance with his car. If he would have went a little wider then he wouldn’t have taken up the whole entrance. The same thing happens sometimes at corners. I am trying to turn right on a corner and the person turning left at the corner has cut too short and they end up taking up the whole road. Has this ever happened to you?

Car Pulled out in front of me

I was driving down the street today on my way to work and this white car is on the side of the street in the turn lane waiting to turn to go across the street. Just before I reached his location he starts to pull out. I had to swerve to miss him. His window is facing me so I would assume he can see me since I drive a red truck. Can’t get much more visible than that. I didn’t have time to lay on the horn, I had to react by getting out of his way. Has this ever happened to you? Were you lucky enough to get through it without crashing?

Guy Walks right out in front of me

I am stopped at a corner waiting to make a right hand turn. A pedestrian is walking down the side of the street and he doesn’t even look to the left or right, he just continues to walk right out into the street to cross the street. Meanwhile the sign that has the stop hand is red and he doesn’t even look. Pedestrians have the right of way, but you can be in the right and dead at the same time. I would never even consider just walking out into the street without checking to see what is there. What do you think?

Why do people pull out in the center lane when there is another car trying to turn

This has happened to me more than once. I am getting ready to turn waiting for traffic when this guy from the side of the street pulls into the center lane. The tail end of his car is on one side of the street and his front end is on the other side of the street. In the meantime I can’t see what is coming because the idiot just decided to block my view. So in effect I am immobilized now because the idiot decided to cut the line. He can see and he can go, but I am stuck. If I wasn’t there already it would have been fine. Have you had this happen to you? What do you think?
