Driving Lesson

Seeing as how I was hit by a car making a left turn not too long ago, this struck a cord with me. Some nice videos too, and I was able to identify the location of all of them on the first watch, mainly because certain intersections are just infamous for bad driving. My favorite part:
4. Do you have a green light, and there ARE cars/trucks/BICYCLES/bus’s etc driving toward you?

Yes - DON’T FUCKING TURN! It is not your turn to go, wait. Wait till every single one of the other people in the oncoming lane have gone, don’t creep into their lane, don’t edge out, and for damn sure don’t nearly run them over. You have to wait, you simply must wait. You have to suck it up and remember that the world doesn’t revolve around you, wait. If you do creep into the oncoming lane, expect to be honked at, expect to be given the finger, expect to get angry looks. It’s NOT YOUR TURN TO GO. I don’t know how else to explain this to you, remember in school where they made you wait for a cookie, and you had to wait till it was your turn to go get the cookie, it’s like that. You know when you wait at the grocery store to buy your stuff, and you have to wait till it is your turn to check out, like that. You know how at the bank you have to wait till the person in front of you is done before you go, just like that. WAIT, wait your turn…no really wait your turn.
