No, das not how long I "last" but aftah riding into work dis morning I couldn't help but question as to how Hawai'i driver licenses are not only issued but maintained.
As I left da hale and approached a busy intersection, a lone vehicle held up traffic on a popular road all because dat driver nevah 'know' da rules of da road.
On a two way street with a green light both ways, right hand turning vehicles have da right of way.... ALWAYS! Left turning vehicles (opposite direction) must yield.... ALWAYS!
But dis lolo stopped, held up traffic all da while horns are 'politely' honking trying to urge him/her to go but to no avail so da rest of us just sucked it up and waited till it was our turn to go again.
Then not more than thirty seconds latah on da Pearl City H1 on ramp I'm on da main lane dat has a YIELDING lane to merge with da one I'm on. I see da rush coming and I'm a click ahead with my spidey-sense tingling. As I'm already into my lean, I noticed da leading vehicle wasn't slowing down to observe da YIELD while da vehicles behind were. Luckily I conserved some lean angle to accelerate as she nearly clipped my rear tire. As soon as I'm upright, I give her a piece of my mind but to no avail.
Now rolling along near da zip mobile hale, da zip mobile traffic needs to merge into H1 traffic and I honestly have to say having traveled dis road for ovah a decade every business day, da majority of zip mobile traffic could care less and just 'push' their way in as soon as H1 comes into view without a care dat they are to 'yield' cause they are changing lanes.
As da lanes are just about to connect, there's a Rav4 driving on da left side of me in da zip lane. I'm checking her out to see wat she's going to do and spy her through her passenger side mirror. She checks her rear view mirror ONLY then veers into my lane causing me to brake and avoid. I flash my lights, rev my engine and honk my weak a$$ horn only to have her just wave to say.... 'thank you'??
I pull alongside her and point my finger to my eyes indicating to look/check and she just smiles.
Wassup Wit Dat!
OMFG! Geez, wat a morning and then as I'm turning into da office street, I have my signal on and stop. Da truck behind me is on my tail inching closer to 'hint' to me to move but kinda hard wen get people crossing da street no?
Wat kine people are on da road these days? How come nobody knows da 'rules of da road'? And before da handful of people tell me to stop riding, I know how to ride so how come you no tell people not to drive? If drivahs learn and understand da (basic) rules of da road, imagine how much more pleasant driving would be?
But dat would be too much to ask no?
Stay tuned for a WWD! concept......
