    Traffic intersection at night....LOOK TWICE!

    Don't want any of the good INGO members here to get in a crash, maybe even hurt or killed, SO....

    DEFINITELY LOOK TWICE when going thru an intersection, after dark!!

    Just a half hour ago (12:20AM), I was headed up to the local gas station to get my wife's cigarettes*. Was waiting at a green light to turn left. There was one car coming in the opposite direction thru the intersection. Note: whenever I'm making a left turn at a light, I always stop where you would if the light were RED, and then creep forward as oncoming traffic is about to clear.

    This time, right behind the oncoming car (I mean right behind, as in 'hugging his rear bumper") was another car; grey in color (matching the wet pavement) and not a single light on. I nearly hit this guy, and would have hit him, if not for braking and turning my wheels to the right, quickly!

    Be careful out there folks, make sure to LOOK TWICE, and turn your dang lights on after dark.....

    * I know; "is there any other reason to quit smoking"?

    Answer: Yes! Heart. Lungs. Offensive odor. RIDICULOUS PRICE.

    I'm glad you managed to miss him.

    FWIW, I have been the guy driving without my lights on. I'm so used to the lights working automatically that it didn't even occur to me to check them. The car had recently been serviced and for whatever reason someone in the shop had switched the light switch from Auto to Off. I had been in a city when it turned dark and the roads I was driving on were lined with enough street lamps that I could see just fine. It wasn't until I got out of the city that I realized I had been driving for a long time without any lights on!

    I look both ways when crossing a one way street.

    Not sure if serious.

    This wouldn't happen to have anything to do with a certain AK safety thread would it? Or am I reading too much into it?
    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,
    seldom turns out the way it does in a song.

    in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Not just after dark. I have seen at the intersection of 163 and 63, semis run red lights at full speed.

    Look left-right-left at least twice.

    More of us need to raise hell at INDOT about this or else elected officials. 9/10 of the problem is that the yellow light cycle is too short to afford adequate stopping time and distance. The stock answer is to drive slower. All that does is move the tipping point closer to the intersection. I have recommended extending the yellow light, adding signs like some states have warning of impending change when flashing, or having the yellow flash a few times in tandem with the green before turning. All I ever got from those f***ing regards was "but the book says".

    Hell, try the stoplight at Ronald Reagan and CR100S In Hendricks county. 45MPH posted, semis,cars, trucks, horse drawn buggies, all run it regularly at upwards of 60mph going Northbound, Southbound is even worse as they get a huge head of steam coming off the train overpass.
