Re: Blocking Driveway in Traffic
Well, I'm going to disagree. If I understand you, the driveway you would have blocked is NOT the intersection containing the light. Right? If so, one of my biggest peeves is that people are only courteous to those IN FRONT of them, totally disregarding those behind. You don't want to block the driveway where someone MIGHT come in from the side, but you think it's OK to block the guy who IS behind you?
And, this is, after all, a "courtesy" thing. I understand you believed you were being "courteous" by leaving the drive open, but, think about it -- you were trying to be "courteous" to someone who was NOT EVEN THERE, while being "discourteous" to someone who WAS there, albeit behind you. While I, too, try to leave openings for driveways and side streets for "potential" traffic, I won't hold up "real" traffic, drivers who could proceed if I just move ahead a bit. Yes, possibly blocking someone who MIGHT show up.
But, that's just me.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
