Wink I know I'm in Massachusetts when ...

Well, here's last Friday evening. I leave the office and down in the parking lot the Boxster is covered in a light blanket of ice crystals and a dusting of snow. Head for home. Nearby intersection, I catch a red light and watch with an amused grin as the guy heading towards me (with plenty of time and room to stop) runs the red light. As my light turns green, a glance to the right reveals a FedEx truck gunning it (no, he didn't slow down on the yellow) and he just blows through his red light (2 or 3 seconds after it went red). I just sat there and thought to myself, well, this is the essence of Massachusetts drivers - crappy weather, poor road conditions and two idiots run a red light within minutes of each other at the same intersection. Figures. Sumbit your story.

Smile Happened Again, same intersection!

Well at least the MA drivers are reliable, you can count on them to run a red light. This morning on the way to work - two cars in front of me catch a red light at the same intersection (see previous post). No it wasn't even close, plenty of time to stop, in fact they both braked but when they saw no traffic coming from the other street, they both just blew through the light. All right, I want the GT tank from the banner. NE American model specifically for Boston area traffic.
