Don't Direct Traffic

Just drive. If there was one thing I could change to make the driving experience safer as well as more pleasurable it would be to stop my fellow motorists from directing traffic. You know what I'm talking about, the driver that thinks he is doing you a favor by waving you through an intersection. What that driver doesn't realize is there are traffic laws that govern the movement of traffic and his intervention is not only unwelcome, it's unwarranted.

I'm sure there are drivers that take advantage of the self-appointed traffic cop's seemingly unselfish gesture. I don't. In fact if one waits, the traffic cop's hand signals become larger and more frantic, he thinks you don't see him. That's the perfect time to give him the finger. You should see the look on his face when he realizes not only are you not going to take him up on his offer but you think he's an asshole on top of it. Time stands still for a moment until he realizes where he is and driving his car is what he should be doing instead of directing traffic.
