Pop Quiz: Left Turn Only

Ok, you suddenly find (oops) you’re in the left turn lane only and it’s a very busy intersection. You see you are surrounded by cars on the right of you and behind you. You:

a. Turn left to avoid complications or an accident…you can turn around later
b. Sit there when the arrow turns green even though the people who want to turn left cannot
c. Try to turn right and cut off all the traffic to get “out of the way”

    hmmmm it would depend, if I thought I could make it over (like if I was farther back in line, I might try and make it to the other side) but otherwise I would just make the turn and back track

    Well, A was the answer I was looking for.

    See yesterday I was at a busy interesection in the left turn lane only and the car (at the front of the line) decided he didn’t want to turn left. So when the arrow turned green (we were the ONLY lane moving) he started to turn right therefore blocking the left turn lane and the other right lanes as well. Such a Masshole.

    I am ashamed to say that more often than not I do C.

    What can I say?? I live in Miami (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!!)
