I’m on a road trip at the moment (hence this missed Ping) and there’s one thing I do back home I’ve noticed other people aren’t doing in traffic. Do you play trombone while driving? No… wait.
Let’s say you approach an intersection with a green light and you’re turning left. There’s a left turn lane. When you approach the intersection, do you stay behind the white line of the turn lane, or go past it into the intersection itself?
I always go into the intersection; that’s how I learned to drive and it’s definitely how people drive in Chicago. But in the south I’ve seen many people not do this and just stay behind the line. They may still turn when they have the opportunity, but if that passes, they’ll need to wait for the next light.
