Cutting Corners

This morning my car was almost clipped as I sat at M-39 and Nickerson while the cars on the road to my right made their left hand turns in front of me.  I’m sure if I stuck my hand out the window I could have touched the back end of more than one of them.

Perhaps it’s a new game: See how close you can come to the stopped vehicle when making a turn in front of it.  Maybe it’s subliminal road rage. Or then again, it could just be bad driving.

When I took driver’s ed my instructor was very clear that when you turn – regardless of whether there are other cars around – you made a definite right angle and not something that look’s like part of a circle. And even though I took those lessons years ago, it seems to me the rule still applies.
