    I fucking hate it when someone waves me through a 4 way stop. There are two scenarios.

    1. It's already my turn. - I know it asshole, who made you the traffic director?
    2. It's not my turn. - This is what really bugs me. If I go and midway through my decision, the other driver decides to go and hits me, I am liable because it wasn't my turn. The whole deal screws up the 4 way stop order of life and ultimately slows down the process.

    You go in order of arrival. If arriving at the same time then those turning left always yield to others.

    I much prefer traffic circles because the more aggressive you are, the quicker you get through. But there's always the timid fuck that comes to a complete stop when none is required.

    While I admire your intentions, this thread was not meant as a 4 way stop primer. I was hoping everyone already knew the rules.

    It really pisses me off when a car goes and then the car behind him slides through without stopping or waiting for his turn.

    This seems to happen to me a lot in Southlake, a town full of rich, entitled people and it's usually a German car doing it.

    So true. I hate when they wave me through as a "courtesy" because a) I'd rather just follow the rules and wait my turn, and b) I hate real world interaction so much that even their wave (aggressive or not) pisses me right the fuck off for the day. :grr:

    There is no doubt that I turn into a bit of an "A" type in the car. I don't get all road ragy except in my head.

    Do you know the "aggressive wave"? It's like they're saying "Go asshole, I'm doing you a huge favor by letting you go 2 seconds early." I wanna say "VOCK YOU, JUST GO IN ORDER."

    Sometimes I actually say that. Loudly. With the window rolled down.

    But I have issues. :shucks:

    I give them the most deadly stink eye you can get.

    You know what I liked about Memphis? How everyone flashed their lights if there was a cop ahead. They don't do that in Texas. I always think about starting that but I'm afraid someone will think it's a gang thing or something else nefarious.

    Seems like you road rage easily. I'd wave you thru.

    Oh yeah, the cop signal. That's something people do statewide to fuck "the Man."

    The car to the right of you has the right of way.
