If they want you to go, don't.

ATTN everyone who gets absolutely enraged when the person ahead of them goes into full panic stop mode - usually flashing their lights manically in a GO AHEAD I'M NOT CRAZY kind of morse code - and holds up an entire column of traffic at best or causing multiple accidents at worst. I have an idea for us all! IF the aforementioned crazy misguided idiot stops for you while you're turning left, just don't turn! Let the whole street grind to a halt. Let the beeping begin, then grow angrier and more insistent. It's a perfect plan for two reasons: it's the ONLY action which obeys the law - no matter how many times they beep or flash their brights, you're not allowed to proceed across lanes unless it is safe and there is no oncoming traffic - and best of all, it negatively conditions every driver in sight that you just shouldn't randomly yield your right-of-way to oncoming traffic because if you do, you may just slow absolutely everything to a standstill instead of only half the traffic. Also, if you are the person who stops at full speed to let people in, stop doing that, it's idiotic. You are the person who feeds bears out of your car window in Yellowstone. The entire sytstem willl not grind to a halft if you maintain your right-of-way and the other guy has to sit there passively for thirteen seconds. You are not a nice person. You are a bad person who is acting selfishly. —Traffic Activist
