I drive our roads daily and am amazed at how many people don't know how 4 way stops work. It is NOT your turn after the car immediately in front of you goes.

It is also amazing how many people don't know to go when it is THEIR TIME TO GO at a 4-way stop. And just this week I had to cars traveling down Gilmer (the one-way part) try to turn left from the right-hand lane.

We've got some bad drivers around here!! LOL

I have trouble on the north service road turning southon Broadway. People won't stay in their lanes. They cross lanes when they turn.

Let's see..... you should yield to the car on your right.
If two cars approach from opposite directions, the first car has the right of way.

As for defensive driving.... always yield to the idiot who runs the stop sign and great big trucks. You may be legally right, but end up dead wrong.
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story?

Hey JB, speaking of bad drivers, arent you the one that drives your "...quite large..." truck down Main Street with no problem? People driving large trucks down Main Street are accidents waiting to happen. :(

There's lanes painted on the road? Ok, I'm kidding. Turning onto the Broadway overpass is a nightmare and I really hate the people that cross over 2 lanes of traffic to get to the turn lane. What I hate even worse are the people who go 35 or 40 on the interstate on ramps. Do you (no one in general) not realize how dangerous that is? And then they get into the right hand lane and don't speed up. :dry:

It's amazing how many cars don't come equipped with turn signals.

Going slowly down the freeway on ramp still isn't as bad as STOPING at the end of the ramp insted of speeding up to merge with traffic. :woohoo:

Has anyone seen that new TV show.....
"Americas Worst Drivers"

I owe a bunch of people an apology.....
I didn't think anyone could be as stupid as these contestents.

One of my pet peeves is gettin caught behind one of these slowpokes who won't get up enough speed on the ramp to blend in with the freeway or interstate traffic.

Exactly! One of the worst on ramps, in S.S., for that to happen on is the west bound on ramp just past Broadway. If you get behind a slow poke on that ramp and there's traffic in both lanes of the interstate you are forced off the interstate because the ramp is so short and the state put those things on the shoulder that looks like reflectors. If I even sense I'm going to get forced off at that on ramp then I don't even bother getting on.

You don't realize how good it is here in SS. You should try to get on I-35 at one of the little ramps where the highway is not maintained by the state...acceleration lane may be 50 t0 100 yards if that, with sharp turns getting on the ramp that slows you to next to nothing!

I don't know about "quite large" .... it's just a regular GMC. And I've never had an accident driving down Main ... of course, I go about 5 mph down between Davis St. and the square :)

Not sure how that makes me a "bad driver" there Sam?
