    Why do "Drivers" insist on stopping in the crosswalks!?

    This is a pet peeve and just pisses me off, when drivers stop across the line and into the pedestrian crosswalks or inch up until they are halfway into the intersection! :duh: >

    I hate this too. I really hate when they inch up. It makes me want to drag them out of the car and beat them senseless. I think it is a trigger for my PTSD as I almost had one of those damn white pickups almost plow into my unit on the ground. But anyway I agree with you.

    I figure it's an invitation to put a big boot print in their door.

    Cell jammer to full.



    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.

    It happens every time I drive that I see these asses!! It used to be that LOEs would give tickets for things like this. What ever happened to that?

    It is Not like they don't have plenty of time to stop!

    I've thought of doing this. I bet there is a technology to jump on their line and talk to them....

    Typically, though not always, it's a lady with those huge, bug eye, Elton John sunglasses on a cell phone driving a minivan/Escalade/Excursion that is doing all sorts of odd things. Even my wife noticed it so that makes it not sexist, right?
    When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose.

    Nope, those are also the one's swirving in the fast lane and going 10 mph under the speed limit because they can't multitask. If I only had my Stryker back... cell phone jammer and 8 wheels of misery and pain for those that get in my way.

    Idk I always stopped at the crosswalk because I missed... Someone told me that hitting certain people were worth points.

    That is fine if you are stopping for the red so as not to go through the intersection. The idiots are the ones that have more than enough time and space to stop but insist at Every light to stop in the pedestrian crosswalk or in the intersection. Or stop but keep inching up through the intersection on the red.

    This being America, a pedestrian or bicyclist have to step around and gets hit it is Lawsuit time.

    Another thing; I am driving my Dad's truck (RAM 1500) and following a 3 second rule from the person in front of me. These A$$e$ keep cutting me off and expect me to stop in time every time!? :duh: :hopmad:

    THEY even do it when I am pulling a trailer!
