You think we’ve got problems in Worcester? Wait until you cross the bridge and see what’s going on in Shrewsbury. It’s basically anarchy:

Savages!!! You’re telling me that you come to a stop sign and someone lets you turn left even though they CLEARLY have the right of way? This is madness. Utter Shrewsbury madness. Property value in that town just plummeted. No way I’m sending my kids to school with a bunch of people who have such total disregard for the rules of the road.

Honestly though, Turtleboy is guilty as charged. Let’s say you’re on the main road and you’re trying to turn left onto some side street. Some poor schmuck is trying to leave that side street by turning left onto the busy road. The problem is they have to navigate through two lanes of traffic, which often times can be difficult. So if I stop my car and let that person go, EVEN THOUGH I have the right of way, I am preventing the cars from in back of me from getting through and thus I am allowing this poor soul to turn left onto Main Street. I thought I was being polite. Little did I realize that I am in fact a terrorist.

Most importantly though I let these people turn left even though I have the right of way, not because I’m a nice guy, but because it makes life easier for me. If there’s a car coming out of the street I’m trying to turn onto then I have to make sure my turn is crisp and sharp. But if there’s no one there I can be lazy and cut that corner how I please.

Needless to say this conversation started heating up:

Seriously though, if someone stops to let you go and you don’t go, that’s just a dick move. Rules are meant to be broken. Lighten up Shrewsbury.

    When I was a kid…a cop would pull you over for running a long yellow light. Now you have to count to three when you start to roll on a green light, to let all the cars go through the red light. I know the police have a lot more on their plate now a days…but if people weren’t getting away with it..it might stop. Oh ..and when in Holden..be careful if someone let’s you pull out..cause they have an inside passing lane on the right called a break down lane. Nice inforcment of the law there. Just saying.

    I’d love to know her position on drivers that disregard no left turn on red signs. Or how about all the people that over look the right turn on red after a COMPLETE stop. Next up how does she feel about all those other drivers that think a yellow light means hit the gas, I’m too important to stop for a complete cycle of the lights to get the green again. Lastly if a driver believes they are so important they keep rolling after the light turns red.

      I have never seen a “no left turn on red ” sign.. ever. my guess is because i have never seen a situation where its legal to turn left on red (unless the light is blinking / malfunctioning).

      Turning right on red w/o a complete stop is a moving violation. If caught, they get a ticket, points on their license and higher insurance premiums…. so why do you care about “her position”

      Yellow light is an indication that the light will turn red in 3 -5 seconds (different areas have different time lengths for yellow lights.) If you are one of those people that slams on his breaks when the light flips to yellow … smack yourself in the head because you’re an idiot. Most of the time it is safer to drive through a yellow light than slam on your breaks… especially in Massachusetts where people drive so close that if you fart in your car and open the window, the smell will woft into the car behind you. However, if the light has been yellow for a second or two before you enter the actual intersection, chances are the light will turn red before you are completely through the intersection. If that happens … it is a moving violation and you will receive a citation if caught.

      “Lastly if a driver believes they are so important they keep rolling after the light turns red.” That is called running a red light. Also a moving violation … citation … yada yada.

        I stand corrected. It should have been right turn.

    i have worked in insurance/auto claims for over 15 years. Overall it is best not to try

    1. The screenshot of the the comment by melissa regarding split liability is accurate but the non-contact party has to stop after the accident, admit to waving on the other car or if they don’t admit it, an uninvolved third party witness is needed. Even if they admit it, the driver pulling from the stop sign will be 51% at fault, therefore they still receive the points on their license. The only time this would change is if there is a law broken and the “waiver” is cited.

    2. Many states/counties have laws in place that forbid citizens from directing the flow of traffic w/o an approved permit. This includes one driver waiving another to go.

    3. Staged accidents are more common than most think, mostly because they are so rarely prosecuted. Go figure, a struggling single parent that is caught swiping an over priced pack of diapers will at very least receive a citation to appear in court but criminals that risk innocent people’s lives and damage property in an effort to steal thousands of dollars walks away with no penalty.

    If she had been complaining about those people who stop in the right hand lane on a four lane road, and expect you to magically make your left turn and be thankful (despite people still coming in the left hand lane, and two lanes of opposing traffic, as well), then I would have been right there with her.

    These are the kind of problems you have when your town’s community leaders are people like Karyn Polito, versus people like Mary Keefe and Sonya Boom Boom Conner (who will run for office, mark my words- she sees herself as too important and smarter than everyone else not to)..

    Vote for the kind of problems that you’d prefer in the next election.

    Make Worcester as great as Shrewsbury.

    I agree with her. I hate people who don’t follow the rules of the road, whether friendly or not.

    My only thing with moron drivers is, if you’re gonna do something fucking stupid, at least do it fast. If you’re gonna cut me off, do at 40 mph so I don’t fucking care. Don’t pull out right in front of me doing 20 when you know I’m doing fucking 35

    first of all, if the main road driver pulls up and has enough time to let you out, you were not paying attention enough in the first place because you should have starting to go once you saw their blinka. BUT, if their waiving and/ or flashing you to go, road courtesy, they should be a little to the right to keep people from passing on the right while they wait for you to go. none the less, you can see if cars are going around them or slowing down because they can’t fit pass the car, all in all their main interest is a slightly easier turn, and not paying attention is now cause of a more of a right away issue, than a thanks very much, let me move quickly so you can turn before oncoming traffic is in your way.. zooom

    Wow….Just wow. This is what this world has come to?? I live in Shrewsbury. The center of town, main street, Rt 9 are a mess with traffic. I let people go all the time to be nice. Because 99% of the people driving through town would run you over to get to Dunks in the center to jam up traffic because they “run on Dunkins” but can’t run into dunkins because that’s just too hard.

    And Erin. I am sure the police officer in the marked police car was trying to be nice to the citizens that completely sh*t all over them. 100 bucks that if the cop didn’t let you go you’d be ripping he/she a new one and blocking Maple Ave in the next BLM movement.

    Thanks Erin for making the good residents of Shrewsbury look like complete idiots.

    How about those assholes who let you jump in front of them at the supermarket when you have 2 things and they have an entire cart? They are setting the bar pretty damn high for the rest of us. I mean really—you were first in line. Stop being polite. It’s very inconsiderate.

  • bigdaddyfranks

    TB, are you one of these people who stops on a main road with flowing traffic to let someone from a side street or parking lot pull out? If so, I hate you.

    • Jay
      June 28, 2016 at 10:08 pm

      Listen man. Taking a left onto Salisbury from a side street can be almost impossible at certain times of day. Unless you have a hero letting you go.

      • bigdaddyfranks
        June 29, 2016 at 10:16 am

        LOL. Touché. When someone is running for their life, that’s a valid exception to the general rule.

        June 29, 2016 at 10:40 am

        Then don’t take a left. Take a right and turn around somewhere and save your life.

        • Dom
          June 29, 2016 at 11:39 am

          Was going to say the same thing. Only problem with taking a right, safely moving over and turning around may add 2…. 3 minutes onto their trip. CANT HAVE THAT!!

          Similar to driving in the left lane and realizing your exit is right there. Why safely change lanes to the right, take the next exit and backtrack when you can just jerk your wheel to the right and cross all 4 lanes w/o looking.
