I think mainly it's because everyone is in such a rush all the time.

For the most part I think is a lack of observation.  Some people are also impatient, feel they just have the right, or at least with Stop Lights, their thoughts of duration (if they stop only briefly) is just shorter based on their requirements.

people is very impatient. I can't understand, they can leave the house earlier if they going to be late. They drive too close distance to your car, if anything happen you have step on the emergency break, the back car would hit you for sure.  ::)

I think our minds sometimes "wander" when we drive because a lot of the driving process becomes "automatic" after you have been driving for a few years.  I really don't think that most people that go through a red light or a stop sign are intentionally "running" them.  I think they just miss them.  It doesn't excuse people from doing it, it is a reminder to the rest of us (assuming we haven't missed one and don't remember!) to keep our mind focused on the task of driving.

Well i really don't think anyone means to i think that is just a product of people not paying attention to the road and the signs of the road.

Reckless driving, drunk, or they didn't see it... Some people disregard lights because they believe they can turn (even though it says do not turn on red)... One time when I was driving back from the gym a night, the car next to me kept on going

For the most part, the Police are not around the enforce the laws.  People simply do not give a damn.  The government spit out these laws, but if no one enforce them, then the people continue to do as they want.  I've seen too many people turn right on the red light that boldly states no turning between the hours of 7am and 7pm.

No clue. Last night I was in Philly and either I ran a stop sign that I plain did not see because it was really dark and rainy or someone else ran one because I almost ran right into them. I have been wondering about this all day. ??? ??? :confused1:

I think that some of them just like taking a chance  but they are also taking a chance with the other guy

They are in a rush or just think they can get away with it until they get caught.

They just don't seem to be paying attention or care, it is terrible driving out there you really have to drive for yourself and try your best to anticipate what the next person is going to do, I prefer to live to see another day, if I miss my exit I just go to the next and turn around, maybe late but seems best way to avoid accident.

I ran a stop sign once because I was preoccupied with thoughts of my father who had just passed away.  I got hit by a car who was expecting me to stop.  No person was hurt, just the two vehicles.
After that I am much more focused on the task at hand...Driving.

Yes, I don't understand too, why can't they leave the place earlier, sometime I just wonder what reason they are rush on the road.  ???
