Yeah...I know that sitting duck feeling all too well.

I generally won't make a left turn on a moped unless no traffics comin, I gotta green ARROW, or I have no choice.

Unless you have jet boosters, it's just plain unsafe to try a left across a large or busy street on a stock moped, they don't have the takeoff for it to be.

The intersection in the diagram now has a 6-way light with arrow, gee..wonder what convinced em ?

For preference, instead of makin a left across a busy street, if the light has no arrow - I will turn right and find somewhere to make a quick U turn or a SAFE left turn into a parkin lot or somethin...come around and go straight across, takes a little longer, but less chance of gettin creamed.

And when stuck where I got no arrow and no choice ? I will WAIT till I have a hole big enough, period - any attempt to force me into makin an unsafe left is not only not gonna work, but will likely result in me gettin off the ped and coming back there to "discuss" it with the impatient cagepusher who seems to think my ped can take off like a bottle rocket.

Usually all that takes is pulling up the pants leg on the right side and sayin "wouldja like to know how I got this ?" with a glare gets the message across, and if that don't, s'what the chain is for....I ain't never riskin my life for someone else's lack of patience again...ever.

And anyone tryin to run me over when I step off the 'ped, which has been tried only once, is gonna find out how fast I can duck - AND lose some automotive glassware, at the very least.
