I don’t know why this bothers me so much, but the flashing yellow light near my house is driving me nuts. Maybe it is not the light that causes my frustration as much as the dumb drives it creates.
There is a green flashing light that clears the way for drivers to make a left hand turn. Then it turns yellow and red for about two seconds. Then it turns into a flashing yellow which means you have the right to make the left hand turn when traffic clears. Do you know how many cars inch up when they see the flashing yellow and then they just stop?
They don’t know what to do. So these people sit there even when traffic clears and wait for the light to go through the cycle again. I thought we were all supposed to take driver’s training before we got our license. Or at the very least do drivers not use common sense while driving?
This light confuses people so much that I’ve only seen a handful of people make the turn on yellow. The rest sit there and pick their noses. You expect this from old people but I’ve seen drivers of all ages stall and get confused.
I tried blowing my horn a couple of times but nothing works. Now I don’t even want to waste my energy.
