I'm filing a formal complaint with the traffic light people too. Those lights turn green to red so darn fast you can't possibly stop. I need to slow down a mile before the light so that I am prepared.
And speaking of longer streets; I swear that the turn for my street used to be so much closer. Now it seems like my left blinker is on for days before my turn comes up. I'm not that concerned though since when I look into my rear view mirror (which is now smaller) I see lots of people behind me waving and supporting me. They all motion that my driving is #1 proper in their book. It looks like they are trying to tell me something too, probably praising my excellent driving, but alas they are making cars much louder these days and I just can't hear them.
