Figure I would start this topic since in my daily drive I come across two scenarios where the rules allude drivers and near misses happen everyday. And because for one of the scenario I had someone curse me out today(I was Driver B/Scenario 2). Wanted to see if I was in the right or in the wrong.

I could see myself moving again at then end of the 5 years. The type of job is pretty much a guarantee that I won't have to relocate over the next 5 years unless I get fired.
