Yellow probably means “Veer Suddenly Across Opposing Lanes of Traffic”

2 07 2008

There’s a weird thing I noticed about San Marcos. In a city full of happily active police officers, no one here has any regard for stop signs. They sail through intersections like stop signs are suggestions. I’d bet you that many a cop’s kid has enjoyed a kick-ass Christmas on the dime of San Marcos’ careless citizenry. 

That all in itself isn’t the weird thing, though. The actual weird thing is the bald-faced fear of a driver in San Marcos who confronts a green light.

“What should I do?” they whisper. “Should I come to a complete stop? or maybe put the car in reverse…

OR VEER SUDDENLY ACROSS OPPOSING LANES OF TRAFFIC?

No, that’s what yellow means.

Pshaw, you, the reader, might say. That’s clearly meaningless hyperbole!

Pshaw my goddamned ass, I say. You haven’t seen it. Utter fucking terror, I’m not kidding.
