Blocking the intersection

Posted on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 3:22 PM

This is to the driver in the small blue SUV who blocked the intersection on the corner of North and Robie (you were heading towards the bridge) on Wednesday night at 5:25pm. Listen, there is a reason the cops are ticketing for this. It's very simple, do not enter the intersection if you can't get through so that you have to sit there while the light changes and you block traffic coming up Robie.

Now this is not a bitch for me as I was only mildly inconvenienced as I could squeeze through. It's what I caught in my rear view that made me angry. Because you were sitting on the crosswalk, you caused a world of problems for the blind man crossing the way that you were now blocking by being somewhere you shouldn't have been. Sure we all screw up... but instead of yelling directions out the window at the guy who is already surrounded by traffic noise, why not get out and get him re-oriented. Show some common sense.

Had I been able to get to the side out of traffic quicker I could have helped him, but you were right there! I know the traffic is testing everyone's patience but we still have to look out for others. —SUV Hater
