Here’s the scene: An intersection with stoplights with turning signals. Four lanes on each side of the road — left turning lane, two through lanes, right turning lane.
I pull on to the roadway from the shopping center a few hundred feet from the intersection and stop behind a black Dodge Charger that, in turn, is stopped behind a white vehicle. The light is red and there is no cross traffic at that moment. The Black Charger whips into the right turn lane and then (left) into the intersection (crossing) a total of seven lanes of waiting vehicles not to mention potential cross-traffic to perform what I call the “Hillary Hook”: extremely careless but not somehow grossly negligent. The success of the Hillary Hook depends on everyone else obeying the law while your conduct is so outrageous that people are frozen into inaction.
No doubt if the act had actually been observed by law enforcement a stop would have been made and a citation issued. Of course, that is, unless the driver actually was Hillary.
