So here's something that's been bugging me for a while. When I leave work this traffic situation comes up every day. Let me break it down for you, and please refer to the picture. This is a typical stop-lighted intersection, and the vehicles traveling up and down have a normal green light, no arrows. Now, because Blue car is making a left turn, while Purple car is making a right turn, shouldn't Blue have to yield to Purple? Because if Purple was going straight then Blue most definitely would yield. And yet everyday I see Purple being all timid waiting for all the Blues to go first. I'm always Blue, so I stop and let Purple go, but I feel people behind me giving me the death stare. So am I crazy? Should Blue be yielding to Purple?
(Oh, and I won't be talking about what was brought up here, mainly because thinking about the world if I had died is super depressing. And Monday is depressing enough without that. Cheers.)
