Gamer Dad you are so right. Some are so rude, inconsiderate and very selfish. They drive as if their life depends on getting to the turn before someone else does. I try to avoid going that direction because of the nonsense that occurs there. I pray she is well and that everyone calms down, slows down and think about what they do before they do it.

Amber, you can go around Temecula in just about any intersection and the same thing happens. Where I live there is a straight road, which means everyone on that road has the right of way due to no stop signs or traffic signals. The traffic coming from the right and every corner has a stop sign. It is a shame that I have to traverse into the lane of oncoming traffic (when it is not actually oncoming) to prevent getting hit by those running the stop signs. There are three particular ones in this area like that. I am not talking about a rolling stop as many call it. I'm talking about blatantly running the stop sign into oncoming traffic. I am aware that happens so I am always on my toes whenever I depart the house.

Hey Sue. I think it is more of a safety concern for those riding on the sidewalk. Many who ride on the sidewalk will not brake at an intersection even though they may have the green light. If the driver has a red light and wants to turn right, they may stop, but they will pull all the way to the corner to do so. At that exact moment, the collision occurs. On the sidewalk you are more than likely not seen because tunnel vision prevents you from being seen. Most don't bother to look at the sidewalk. Please be extra careful and make sure you are seen OK?

Totally agree BK. If you ever watch a motorist making a right turn they almost never look right. They roll up to the red light looking left and keep looking left. I saw a pedestrian crossing when he had the right of way and was almost hit by a car making a right on red. The driver never looked right and the pedestrian, who had the right of way, started walking. It was close! Pedestrian luckily jumped out of the way.

It's a shame LDS. We just have to do what we can as individuals to keep as safe as possible. Thanks by the way for those city management and city council links. I wrote to them tonight about my particular area.
