Pull Up Your Car!

How many times have you been trying to get into a left-turn lane, like at MacArthur trying to turn left onto Ford Road, and you miss the light because you can’t get into the lane?

Sometimes, you can eke out enough room to squeeze over, and that’s when you see the problem: the drivers waiting at the red light to go straight are leaving about four car lengths between them and the car in front.

You do not need to leave that much space! I’m not suggesting you touch bumpers, but pull up a few feet. If everyone did it, more cars could get in the turn lane and get out of the way.

To be clear, I checked on this with the NBPD.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella responded.

“There is no legal distance required,” she said. “It’s not part of the Vehicle Code.”

So pull up, people.
