    Law-Abiding Tango

    What do you do when you are in the right-hand turn lane at a red light, and some idiot pulls into the parking spaces to the right of you on the street in an attempt to go around you and make their own turn ahead of you?

    If you are me, you pull your car into where they are trying to go to cut them off from their attempted illegal activity, and shoot them a really dirty look for breaking the law because of their impatience.

    But what then do you do when you notice that the car you are glaring at has municipal plates (as in unmarked police car)?

    Well, you worry like heck, see. You keep glaring, all the while praying that the person behind you isn't vindictive as well as law-breaker, and you make that darned turn as soon as humanly possible. Then you drive really carefully until said rushed individual in a uniform pulls off the road in another direction, that's what you do. *laugh*

    I still stand by my guns though. As someone who once ticketed a police car for improper parking, and has pulled over another officer for a traffic violation, I can't stand folks who are supposed to be upholding the law to be so blatantly breaking it, and I'm not afraid to go out of a way to make a point. Legally, of course. *wink*

    Oh no! I would have completely panicked. Of course I would have ended up with a ticket or something...;)
