    Hold the phone there Ben Franklin, you're white. Cops don't shoot white people without some extreme circumstances.

    They can't see him through the extremely dark tint.

    Or perhaps the tint isn't so dark, but he looks brown through the tint that's there?

    I backed out of the unlit ER parking lot at about 2am and hit a a black suv parked in a spot clearly marked as no parking. Dented the SUV, my car with no damage. I thought seriously about not leaving a note but in the end I left one. Glad I did because it turned out to be a nurse's car. If it had been an ortho doc's I would have been pissed at myself.

Bet some class action lawyers got pretty damn rich off this one, though. Now have fun locking down your credit and cleaning up any messes they may have created.
    I'm sure that every time you open a bank account, get a credit card, ues a pay toilet, etc you sign a waiver you don't read that lets them send your info to the credit bureaus.

    Which is wrapped up in the clause where they collect data on the transaction in order to serve you better!

    I don't remember ever signing a waiver, but I HAVE received plenty of one-side changes of term notifications over the years. Funny how businesses can change terms on you on a whim, at any time, but you sure as hell can't do the same to them. I bet you're right, though. It's in the terms of SOMETHING I've used at some point, but it's still annoying that you can't even have a basic bank account or anything else without having your info being sold off, and then promptly hacked. It's like you can't even participate in modern society without your private info being vulnerable. Not sure of an alternative without going full off-grid hermit.

    Shit that annoys you

    GoshÖitís almost as if removing regulations keeping business needs/wants from running roughshod over its consumers has negative consequences on its consumers.

    Quite possibly. Don't remember. Opened my accounts in the freaking 90s. Surely terms were at least SLIGHTLY different back then, though.

    O rly? Have I ever complained about Federal banking regulations here? Just because I like the thought of smaller government as a whole doesn't mean I want to throw out the baby with the bathwater. FFS, you guys love to over-generalize others around here. Never any allowance for nuanced points of view. Nosirree.

    Why can't people trim or remove their hedges and shrubs from near corners at stop signs on side streets so you can see oncoming traffic without pulling into the travel lanes of the cross street? Why do they get shitty if you ask them to cut stuff back?

    Why does everyone ignore that big fat white stop line at intersections and make left turns hard? Why is basic shit like this ignored? Again today I watched a gnarly accident because someone apparently thought they had the right to pull 20 feet past the stop line even though the light was red.

    try dealing wth 10 feet high berms for 3 or 4 months and you won't be worried so much about the shrubs. At least with the shrubs there's a chance the oncoming drivers will be able to stop.

    If they were not dumb-as-shit mouth breathers they could try to figure out what traffic is coming by being a bit behind the guy trying to turn left. Unless there is untrimmed hedges blocking their view back there, of course.

    At least in my state you are only required to stop at the line before moving forward to gain a better view prior to turning. Since no one gives a shit about anyone else on the road this turns into an escalating game of who can stick their nose out farther to block the other turning cars view so they can see.

    A big issue IMO is that we basically test people once when they are young, give them a license and never test them again. Iím starting to think that a moving violation should come with a fine and a retest.

    Personally my solution is to avoid ever turning left across uncontrolled traffic.

    I'm talking about when you're at a light and it's red. IMO there's no reason at all to go past that line and enter the intersection. The line is there for a reason and when somebody is making a left turn they need that room.

    I can only assume you are talking about oncoming or cross traffic taking a left?

    Yeah, if itís red and you arenít turning right you need to be stopped at the line (law) and outside the travel lane you are turning into. Donít seem to have that issue here typically.

    Like I said, itís clear to me we need widespread retesting for a large percentage of the driving population.

    Stopping at cross walks, red lights, basic speed rule, merging, how to use your low beam, high beams , accessory lighting etc etc.
