I have a question. Maybe this would be a good one for all you folks going to the Laugh-In driving school they have here in Austin.
Who has the right of way in this situation?
The red Kia making a
probably possibly illegal U-turn or the black SUV making a right on red, with her left blinker going?
We made our moves at the same time. As we did, we made eye contact. And her eyes were sayin “Get out of the way, can’t you see where I’m going?” Did I mention the left blinker? And my eyes said “Oh no you don’t lady, I was here first.” I might even have showed her which way I was going with my
middle finger, just in case she needed a visual. And then it was on. Because I was smaller, I was able to whip my U-turn and get in front of her, barely. She then proceeded to stay right on my bumper, acting all superior. I just laughed because, guess what? I’m in front of you!
I need to know this in case I ever
get my ass kicked over it a ticket or something. I can just tell the cops that my readers, who have graduated from the Laugh-In School of Driving, have assured me that I had the right of way and that it is perfectly acceptable to give the other lady hand signals in lieu of a blinker, considering she doesn’t know how to use a blinker. Right?
