Why am I not surprised there is actually a Wikipedia entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pittsburgh_Left) for this traffic maneuver....
One thing I don't think I will ever get used to is the way people drive around here. And of course ever since my accident, in which someone made a left into oncoming traffic (me) I admit to being more then anxious about this practice.
When the light turns green, you go.
When the light turns red, you stop.
But what do you do when the light turns blue with orange and lavender spots?
