Doesn’t it just make you MAD when grown adults behave badly and make excuses for it, whether that be in the school parking lot, on social media, or driving in traffic circles?
‘Seriously!? Stay in your blinkin’ lane, lady!’
You’d think that a traffic circle was a new phenomenon around here. It’s like the whole country becomes confused when the roadway wraps itself around a pretty garden.
‘I don’t know where to go.’
It doesn’t help that city developers designed many of them with one lane in and two lanes out. So, of course, it makes perfect sense for the Average Jo to go ALL the way around in the outside lane and ignore everyone in the inside lane who should have the right-of-way. What was he thinking?
‘But I didn’t know…’
‘But I changed my mind…’
‘But I don’t care…’
On our way to and from school, there are a whopping six traffic circles, and it is a rare day when I don’t get cut off by at least one person who is oblivious to their surroundings. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve narrowly missed being creamed by some guy in a taxi.
So, what does one do when you can’t control other people’s driving habits?
