Stop Signs and Stop Lights
« on: November 20, 2014, 08:19:03 pm »
Just curious. why do people run red light and stop signs? That's the most dangerous thing you can do on the road. I don't understand.

I think it's probably due to people being in a rush to get someplace.  I think it's better to be late and alive, rather than be dead, or cause an accident.  Between people running red lights, coasting through stop signs, and kids texting, you sometimes feel you take your life in your hands When you are on the road.

Laziness, and not paying attention, and trying to get through traffic as fast as possible

I agree it probably being late or not paying attention is why this happens

I've noticed that most drivers who run stop signs and red lights are talking on their cell phones.

Most of the time they are just in a hurry to get wherever they are going.  Sometimes they just are paying close attention.
Have a wonderful day!

Mostly in rush or sometimes they just do not want to stop. If they do stop it is like a slow down then they go, which is not even stopping.

Run into red lights mostly not paying attention. Run into stop signs is laziness and did it intentionally.

I think most of them are just not paying attention and or are just plain stupid. I personally know how it feels when someone runs a red light. totaled my pickup, tore my back up 1 1/2 years of therapy. Whiplash on top of it.  and then 3 moths after the first wreck an indian woman tried to beat a yellow light and smashed into me. . Yep just just plain stupid and their head up there you know what.

Most of the time it's just not paying attention, being distracted... sometimes it's being in a hurry and thinking you can make it, no one is coming.  It's so dangerous.
