Default SE Ladd & Clay

Tuesday, May 13 at SE Ladd & Clay, 6pm. I was northbound on Ladd preparing to turn left on Clay, through the barrier. A Volvo sedan with Washington plates was eastbound on Clay, just sitting there. Not knowing what the car was doing, I reduced my speed as I turned. I thought she was confused about where Ladd might lead her if she turned right, but the barrier prevented her from turning left. As I was crossing the southbound lane on Ladd, she starts turning left, going the wrong way to go around the island. I screamed at her and she stopped and threw her hands in the air. I yelled "No turn!" and a few choice expletives. She then completed her illegal turn.

Unhappy

I just shake my head. How has our species survived so long when idiot drivers are so prevalent
