No I don't.

I see it everyday at a certain intersection on the way home from work. If I somehow turn before they do I go slow in front of them to hold them up.

I do not. It is illegal, and I am paranoid.

If I'm in a hurry, I'll cut through the Winn-Dixie parking lot at Lee/Burbank because that light seems to take forever.

That's only if there's people in that right lane wanting to go straight and blocking it up.

ETA: I'll probably stop doing that. I have a red car.

Yeah I have a few places around town I'll do it everytime..then some lights only when it's really backed up.

I look back laughing at all the cars still waiting at the light as i'm on my way.

Yeah sometimes. Only if I can do it discreetly.

Always a good place to do it. Just tell the cop you were told there was sign showing a special for a 12 pack of coke for $3 which there obviously isn't so I turned around and left

re: cutting through parking lots to avoid lights/sign/traffic


I did it through the Hobby Lobby and all those parking lots a few timeson College back when I was at LSU. It just got to the point we were not moving for an hour, and when you realized that it cleared up after the IHOP, there was no reason for it to be like that.

Just a bunch of idiots doing dumb shite creating traffic every day.

But no, its not my usual MO, and its pretty dangerous. I see near accidents all the time due to the guy using the lot as a shortcut driving too fast through it.

I do this occasionally but The Station or whoever owns that little connector piece between their lot and Hobby Lobby put in this weird little speed bump things that I'm afraid will mess up the bottom of my car.

I try to avoid College as much as possible. Even when I need to get to the Hobby Lobby or Chick-fil-A, I found you can go a bit down Perkins, turn on Congress and go around.

The trick is, you gotta coast through the parking lot like you're an actual customer, then mouth the words, "Ahh... frick it," and speed up like you suddenly changed your mind or forgot something.

I found myself first in line at the light at Lee/Burbank, going towards Highland. I was going straight but the guy behind me was turning right.

I felt like a bitch for the entirety of that stupidly long light.

I'd usually slow down a lot right in front, and let any pedestrians pass so it looks legit.
