People of Rochester, Learn to Drive, Please

stop-sign.jpgI’m not sure if I have ranted about this before, but if I could make one request of the people of Rochester, it would be this:

When approaching a 4-way stop, and there are other cars around, please come to a full and complete stop. If you are making a left hand turn, you are to go behind the oncoming car. Behind him. Not in front. Never in front. Always behind.

Traffic goes in an alternating manner. If you arrive slightly after later than the people who are now leaving the stop sign, do not gun it in an attempt to “catch up”. You are too late to go with those people. Your time has passed. Await your turn. Awaiting your turn means waiting for the cars to cross in front of you. Then your turn. If you are making a left hand turn, go behind the oncoming car. Behind, never in front. Never in front. Patience, grasshopper, patience.

Okay so that was like four requests. Heed them! Or await the wrath of my horn!
