Thought about this thread Sunday night about 7:45 when waiting to turn left onto Rosencutter off K-18. About 10 of us sat there for 10-15 minutes while the light failed to turn green, all of us surely thinking the light was broken. Soon I realized the car up front didn’t seem to notice or care that we were all stuck. Hadn’t inched forward or anything. As my husband pulled out of the line to go the long way around instead of waiting for the light, I looked into the car at the front of the line. It was some late teen or early 20-something texting away, completely clueless as to what was going on around them. And here’s the punch line: The signal never changed because she wasn’t pulled up far enough to trigger the sensor and clearly had no idea how long she had been sitting there.
We took the Seth Child exit and turned left (to get to Stagg Hill, then finally to Rosencutter) and there she was again, lost and almost turning into oncoming traffic on the eastbound off ramp, trying to get back onto K-18—apparently she didn’t even need to turn off of K-18 in the first place, but was so distracted and disoriented from texting while driving she had no idea what was going on.
Anyway, that’s who you’re driving on K-18 with, folks. Godspeed.
