Do they even teach drivers ed anymore?

Ok, this is one of my all time traffic law pet peeves. I’m entering the interstate and on the onramp before even hitting the ‘get up to speed’ area and I get cut off by someone that is entering the on ramp from another direction. Here’s the thing though. THEY have a yield sign plain as day and not obstructed. Then I get the horn blared at me and the ‘bird’ from a young driver that’s on the phone.

Last I checked they were breaking two traffic laws at least. Driving while distracted (on the phone) and not yielding right of way.

For those that don’t know, here’s the definition of the yield sign from Yield

Yield means let other road users go first. A yield sign assigns the right-of-way to traffic in certain intersections. If you see a yield sign ahead, be prepared to let other drivers crossing your road take the right-of-way. And don’t forget about bicycles and pedestrians!

Im telling you either people are stupid, can’t read or are just plain ignorant…or all of the above. Anyhow, let’s try and stay safe out there and how about showing a little courtesy.
