I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I say!

Okay, so recently, the city decided to replace some turn signals close to my house due to traffic backing up during rush hour. They changed this signal into one that flashes yellow while the main light to go straight is green.

Now, can anyone tell me what the flashing yellow light means, even if it's a turn signal?

Don't worry. I'll give you time.

If you answered, "Well that's easy, Becka, it means sit there like a dumbass and do absolutely nothing" you'd fit right in here in Hillsbutto!!

In all actuality, you'd be WRONG!

What a flashing yellow light actually means is (pulls out whiteboard, draws diagram, and points with a laser-pointer) you can GO AHEAD AND TURN when there is no traffic coming your way. How hard is that, honestly?? It's like a yield sign. And a flashing red light might be a little harder for y'all to grasp... You treat it like a stop sign. Yes! I'm not lying! You stop, look both ways, if you're good, you GO!

Why is this so HARD, people?!? Gah, I know what question these people got wrong on their dang DMV written test....

Is it rude to lay on my horn when I'm stuck behind these morons?

I've been thinking about installing a nice airhorn for occasions such as this.

That doesn't sound very Oregonian of you Becka!! Sounds much more like a New Yorker.SO it is good to know that traffic issues are not only in Nevada but there as well. I absolutely hate horn honkers I just have to say that when people lay on the horn I just smile and wave like they are my best friend and just happy to see me, I don't think this makes them very happy but O WELL!!

:P LOL Noel. Eh, it's the Los Angelino in me making an appearance. Lived in L.A. for 6 years after I got married - got used to the crazy freeways and really rude drivers. It's actually very tame here in Oregon in comparison. I don't drive aggressively, but there are times I get a little tweeked. Maybe hormones?

But nah, I don't really lay on the horn. I'm not quite THAT bad. I just like to hypothesize on my blog. Heheheh...
