Read the fuckin' traffic signs

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2018 at 4:28 PM

I was driving down Agricola Street. At the intersection of Agricola and North, the car in front of me turned on his left turn blinker and stopped to wait for his chance to turn left. Incoming traffic was pretty heavy. IT IS A NO-LEFT-TURN INTERSECTION. The sign is right below the traffic lights. I waited for a couple seconds to give him a chance to see the sign and start moving. I gave him a couple light honks when he didn't realize that he's not supposed to be turning left. I rolled down my window and shouted "no left turn" and I guess I wasn't loud enough.
I honked a couple short honks again and it triggered him. I could see that he seemed to be yelling and looking back at me and then he aggressively pulled straight ahead and stopped on the side of the street. When I passed him I was going to roll down my window and told him that I wasn't being impatient, it's just that he wasn't supposed to turn left at the intersection, anyway. I gave up the original plan as I saw his angry red face and pumped up chest. I could hear his yelling and swearing without rolling down my window so I decided not to waste any more of my time and energy.
Then he started his car and cut right off in front of the car behind me and followed me while pressing on his horn long and hard until we parted.
So, in return to your "you fuckin' bitch" comment: YOU DUMB FUCK. READ THE FUCKN TRAFFIC SIGN AND STOP BEING A JERSEY SHORE LOOKING DOUCHE!—frustrated driver
