    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

Then people come flying around me honking their horns and they end up blocking the intersection when the light turns red. I laugh!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    "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 ^_^

    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.

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