I'm in a ranty mood this morning and using a variety of stop signs this morning has tipped me over the edge. Now I'd admit that I took drivers ed about 10 years ago but I think I recall stop signs pretty clearly. Is it just me or are people everywhere absolutely terrible at driving and specifically at managing stop signs. It's the biggest clusterf*ck I've seen since I started driving. Its the most basic thing in driving. You stop, then go. Simple right? Apparently not. Maybe I live in a city full of over generous people but I'm sick and tired of the you go, no you go, no you go game. Just move it. You both could have been through the intersection while I watch you play this insane game of politeness. To be fair I pay the favor forward when it is given to me. If I meet somebody across and intersection and they wave me along, I go, and then when the occasion comes up I give somebody else that chance but if they hesitate or refuse to take it then ***** them. I've got places to be and things to do and frankly don't give a ***** about a total stranger who has nothing to do but play traffic cop on their way to work at the nice factory. end rant. To sum up though, yes I know how stop signs work. Here's the rules as I see them. 1. You stop and if its your turn you immediately proceed. 2. If another driver arrived there prior to you they are given priority over you unless you are both moving in directions that do not impede one another. i.e. both turn right, left, or go straight in parallel directions. 3. If another driver arrives simultaneous to you then the person on the right is given right of way.
