Unnecessary red lights are an engineer's failure to put a sensor where there should be one.

Unnecessary red arrows are a personal insult to my intelligence and driving skill.

Everyone, please call down while driving. One minute here or there will not be the difference between success and failure in life. Stay calm on the road

Also, waiting at a red left turn arrow with no one coming from the other direction.

We've got the blinking yellow arrows for that situation

I hate it when the idiot in front is too scared to get in the intersection and we all have to wait until it's green again.

How often are you driving the speed limit in the left lane?

I would never! My normal practice used to be to go about 7 to 9 miles over the speed limit (72-74 in a 65) and live in the right or middle lane, depending on traffic. In the last year or so, I've started routinely going twelve to seventeen over (77-82 in a 65) which typically allows me to live in the left lane without anyone coming up behind me. I move for them if they do, though. I should slow down

I agree. I honk but it is usually a little old lady who doesn't give a fuck.

It's called defensive driving. I refuse to be bullied by people behind me honking. I don't work for you, don't tell me how to drive

If you wanted to turn right on red through an intersection with limited visibility and high-speed traffic when it may not be safe to do so, you should have left your house thirty seconds earlier and beat me to this red light

65 is the fastest we get around here, but I know it gets up to 80 in other places so I just wanted to be clear

65-80=15

I take a very real pleasure in not doing whatever the person who just honked at me wants me to do

Once in Cambridge I saw a guy calmly get out of his car and yell to the person behind “where the fuck do you want me to go you asshole?!”, and the calmly turn around and get back into his car. It was glorious.
