I was coming home from my sisters house after watching the fireworks a few minutes ago.
I’m sitting at the light at Coliseum and State Blvd when the left turn goes green, the entire line of cars gets through and then here comes this green 91-96 Escort Wagon with a GMC SUV behind it hauling ass.
The light turns yellow, then red. The Escort decides to wait… and apparently the fucking moron in the GMC wasn’t paying attention. Last second he slams on the brakes and slides to within 5 feet of the Escort who was already over the white stopping line.
Why do people do that? Whenever I’ve torn ass to get through a yellow left signal it’s NEVER been directly behind someone in a 4000 lb vehicle with under-engineered brakes. Or, at all for that matter.
Traffic was backed up and they were impatient I guess from all the traffic leaving the lots after the fireworks show. But I’d rather make it home with an entire car over getting home 3 minutes sooner. Wouldn’t you?
No wonder Ft Wayne was voted the dumbest City in America.
