I hear you on that. Lots of times I'll stop and the other driver has the right of way but they just look at me with a blank stare like they're waiting for me to figure out who goes first. Other times, they roll through a stop like they have tunnel-vision and can't see any traffic or cars that got to the intersection before them at all. I had a front row seat to a two car collision in front of Staters on Lakeshore and a dog getting run over. Both times I could see what was going to happen 5 seconds before it happened. And the drivers involved could have too. But in both instances I recall looking at the faces of the drivers and seeing that same blank, straight-ahead stare oblivious to approaching danger or animals (or people) in the path of their vehicle. You don't have to be drunk to be a really bad driver. But drinking makes everyone a bad driver.

I called California Highway patrol 2 times to help with traffic and they ignored calls - I sat in car about 100 yards south of accident - and it took 90 minutes to drive 2 miles? South to the 15 by Carl jr. They allowed north bound traffic on TCR, no CHP or local police to help with traffic. Just Poor performance!

Teller of the truth needs to come up with a better line than that. Proves you are just another jackass that has nothing relevant to say.
