Near miss

Just had a real close call. Was on my way to my gf's aunts house(long story, lol) Was already in the neighborhood, off the main road. It was a two way stop, i did not have a stop sign, but cross trafik did. A UPS 18 wheeler failed to stop at his stop sign. I was already in the intersection and just swerved and gassed it to get out of the way. Scared the out of me. My little Ninja does have some excelleration, thank .

I'm not entirely sure what he was doing there. There are no 'no thru truck' signs, so it was legal, just weird. You have to watch out for the UPS and FEDEX guys. big truck or delivery van, those guys will run you down. (not that us "ambulance drivers" are much better)

I've been really tempted lately to mount a pair of guns...

We've got a 4-way stop here (Cypresswood & Lockridge), it seems all the going westbound (toward I-45, on Cypresswood) have problems comprehending this fact.
At least 50% of the time, some for brain fucktard pulls up to the sign and takes off not bothering to check if anyone is coming from lockridge. Honk at em if you see em starting to move, and most of them either keep going or accelerate.

Google Maps
so should you , knowing people run the sign

a) be more cautious at that intersection
b) ride thru cuz you DO have the right of way

Well, lets consider....


1> Im still riding
2> I haven't posted up a wreck report yet...

I think you can assume that I've been going with A and been practicing my 'mean mug' on occasions when we end up stopped next to each other at the light. :-)

...and think it's time to start running with the little camcorder again.

Generally I do. Just wasnt expecting an 18wheeler. I also was a little pre occupied, was on my way to check on my gf's son, who had fallen and hit his head. Her aunt, who was watching him, wanted to know wether to take him to the ER or not. Told her I'd go check on him. Looked up, and OMG THERES AN 18WHEELER FIXIN TO HIT ME!!! lol. I'll pay more attention next time.

That sucks. If I'm first at a light, when it turns green I let the car next to me pull into the intersection first, and if it's only me then I give everyone the evil stare who should be stopped at the red. People behind me sometimes aren't too happy.

Sit at the stop-sign until no other vehicles are in the area. Then, roll through the intersection?
