Gridlocked

I’ve been on a tear lately with respect to moronic drivers who either don’t know traffic laws, don’t care about them, are too egomaniacal to realize that the law applies to them, or are just too stupid. Lately, my money is on stupid.

Today’s rant is about those motorists who like to block intersections because they can’t wait the five or so minutes for the green light to come back around to them. No, they’re too impatient and/or too stupid and, apparently, don’t mind blocking a major, traffic light-controlled intersection and preventing other motorists from going on their merry little way.

Lately, I’ve had more than my share of stress at the hands of these morons. I have had to sit at a red light for multiple cycles simply because the intersection is blocked when I have the right-of-way. Further, when I arrive at or leave work, I have to wait to turn at a traffic signal; however, more often than not, I am neither able to enter nor exit the parking garage because of idiots blocking my way.

According to Nevada law (NRS 484B.450), “1. A person shall not stop, stand or park a vehicle, except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with law or the directions of a police officer or official traffic-control device, in any of the following places: … (c) Within an intersection ….

Now, that’s pretty damn clear, don’t you think?

I started taking photos of these motorists’ vehicles and forwarding them to a cop friend of mine. Karma is, indeed, a bitch,
