Conservative drivers are few and far between. If you go too slow you're almost more of a menace. However I have managed to avoid any speeding tickets, though the commute home tonight took two hours.
How I normally drive.
How I drive when I see a police officer.
He's stopped with his right turn signal on. There's no signage prohibiting turns on red lights so traffic usually moves pretty briskly.
He doesn't turn. He scoots out about six inches, then sees a single car coming from the left, about 2 city blocks away. And scoots back.
Seriously - I could have turned a Beluga Whale in the space he had and it's multiple lanes for all.
He inches forward again, there's another car - about a block away, slowing down to check out a big sign for a concert - all kinds of room. Again, the Grim Reapermobile inches forward and then creeps back again behind the stop line.
Wait, now there's traffic the opposite direction now turning in front of us. OK, that's a wait. One Two Three cars. That's it - the road is completely clear of all traffic from all directions. Woot!
The Reapermobile does not move, only inches forward as if expecting another car to somehow materialize in front of him, then retreats.
Several grey hairs later, our light turns green and he turns right.
Apparently Death has moved to Chicago.
He's just afraid to change lanes.
