Earlier this week I was driving West on Route 27 into East Hampton. As I approached a red light at the intersection of 27 with Newtown Lane, cars were piling up so I stopped to avoid blocking the left turn for North Main Street.
Once I stop the car behind me proceeds to hold down his horn. Not a beep, or a toot. If I hadn't looked back I would have assumed he had a heart attack and slumped onto the steering wheel. Not so, he just thought it would be a good idea to bring some gridlock to East Hampton.

If the light at Main and Newtown is about to turn green, you are better off not worrying about the people who are waiting to make a left onto North Main. Sometimes courtesy, like stopping for jaywalkers in front of the movie theater, for example, can be a bad idea when the driver in the other lane doesn't take the clue.ReplyDelete
Spanky - you're right on with the jaywalking problem. Someone is going to get seriously injured one of these days.ReplyDelete
