Don`t block the box! That`s illegal in nyc and should be illegal everywhere (if it`s not already)

Green lights no longer have meaning or force by themselves-- only when green and if the woman up front is done text-messaging-- only then can one proceed.

"It is legal to enter an intersection with a green or yellow light"

Unless your exit is blocked, in which case you are creating an obstruction in the flow of traffic and thus breaking the law.

I remember seeing an unmarked cop car pull in front of half a dozen cars who did a similar thing at a roundabout and ticket the lot of them ^_^

weeelll...the first one is actually the law..or at least for KY. you cant goout in the middle of the road and just sit there. the thing that bothers me is the people who blast off when the light turns green, just to cut me off and then immediatly drive slow.

"Or do they not have those in america?"

Not that I`ve seen...

"I live near Boston and literally everyone does this. I swear to god, they don`t test before they hand out licenses up here."

That`s because we have a whole set of unwritten rules related to driving here in MA... There is good reason people who see us on the road call us Mass-holes...

Roudnabouts honestly work. What happened to those cool yellow grids where you can`t legally stop in them? They could just plonk one of those across the whole intersection, solves the problem. Or do they not have those in america?

In situations like that, I like to let people KNOW they f*cked up. I`ll get as ridiculously close to them as I can, and it really helps I drive a really big, loud truck. Intimidation!
That, and I`m just an a-hole.

Because they have nowhere to go except the middle of the intersection, CornFlakeGirl. So they block traffic and ruin everyone`s day or make everyone`s day by being run over by a monster truck! ...I suddenly approve of more monster trucks. Just to see that now. :)

Usually to solve this problem a baseball bat to the taillight gets attention then a crowd of people cheering and no one supporting the non-nice individual gets the guy off your back. Its effective cause i`ll be damned if that douche does it again.

Because they block the intersection. That one person`s impatience is now delaying multiple people. On average, everyone would get to their destination faster if everyone were courteous driver. The payment for *one* person to get through an intersection a single cycle of the lights faster is that *multiple* people are now delayed an extra cycle.

Also, consider a very busy city in which every intersection had someone blocking traffic. You could potentially end up in a situation in which traffic was deadlocked and virtually no hope of progressing.

If you still don`t get it, then you are a selfish and irresponsible driver.

Where I live, they do this all the time, not only at intersections, but also on railroad tracks. There`s one intersection in particular that became such a problem they put up a large sign that reads "DO NOT BLOCK INTERSECTION." I swear, one time a COP actually blocked me from crossing that intersection.

Roundabouts aren`t the solution for these $#!+-for-brains, either. We just got a roundabout last year, and nearly everyone stops before entering it, even when there isn`t another car in sight. They act like they`re making a hard right turn at a blind intersection onto an interstate highway. And of course, these tards are always in front of me.

I think the only solution is to get elected president so I can close all the streets and run all the lights in my motorcade.

mmm theres no point in going into the intersection to wait your turn to turn ;) when you can do the same thing just as effectively without being in the path of red-light-running drunk drivers and other dumbasses that cause crashes in intersections.

that said, time it right so that when you can go youre in position to

THANK YOU!! God, I deal with this so much, especially on the strip near UT. I sometimes feel like the idiot because I stop at the green because it`s backed up like in these pics. Then people come flying around me honking their horns and they end up blocking the intersection when the light turns red. I laugh!

in UK we have yellow boxes in the middle of junctions, means you cant stop on the yellow box

That`s nice, so does that mean all drivers in the UK still don`t block the intersection? Dipsh*ts like the ones in the pic above would still say f**k the yellow box.

Jayme add`s his two cents : True people do it but get caught by a smart car with cameras on it or the traffic junction cctv. Your arse is getting fined boy-oh


grymes two cents : In the UK we have things called round-a-bouts. They`re rather useful because you cant block anyone.

This happened to me today- and ive also seen cars stop in front of a firehall or ambulance, blocking the entrance before. SO ANNOYING.

I also hate it when people brake hard for no reason on the highway- The turns are meant to be taken at high speeds, they made it that way.

Adam, you`re wrong.

"22526. (a) Notwithstanding any official traffic control signal indication to proceed, a driver of a vehicle shall not enter an intersection or marked crosswalk unless there is sufficient space on the other side of the intersection or marked crosswalk to accommodate the vehicle driven without obstructing the through passage of vehicles from either side."

Notwithstanding means:
in spite of; without being opposed or prevented by:

So, in spite of having a green light, a vehicle shall not enter, etc. Please turn in your driver`s license.

The real intersection jerks are the motorcycle gangs. 2 to 4 of them will block off all lanes as their gang rolls through illegally.

Actually the guy on the right is correct (and a douche)... in California anyways. Our anti-gridlock law says that on a green or yellow light you can enter and potentially block an intersection as long as there is no sign saying otherwise (Do Not Block). If there is no stop light at the intersection at all, then you cannot enter if you will block the intersection. However, you cannot enter an intersection on a yellow light to make a turn (left or right) if there isn`t enough room to complete your turn. What`s funny is you could potentially get a parking ticket if you`re caught. CVC 22526

There`s a law that basically says that you can`t block intersections. That guy gets a ticket.
Now granted, I`ve been in this situation accidentally when I think the lane ahead was going to move but it didn`t.

Well, I know here in the UK you enter the middle zone (not that we really have these types of junctions, we have more roundabouts) if there`s room for you (normall 1-2 cars) mainly because the timing between red and green, IE amber will allow you to move on without bothering anyone, but as the pictures above show the exit was not clear and show no one should be in that space!
