My husband might have driver dyslexia. It's so bizarre because it's not like he's just a consistent non-yielder. He has opposite-itis when it comes to yielding. The worst part is he thinks he's being nice. But it's just dangerous and confusing to other motorists. He will stop in flowing traffic to let someone pull out of a Food Town parking lot. That is a blatant "do not yield" situation for most people. But then run a full blown red light (blatant yield). He somehow has no problem backing out of a parking space when another car is going by but then he blocks traffic letting a pedestrian cross who isn't even in a crosswalk. Sometimes the pedestrian waves him on because he's uncomfortable with this. Pedestrian knows the rules. Wait for a break in traffic and make a run for it. Come on! So basic. If someone in oncoming traffic is waiting to make a left turn he will abruptly stop and let them do that. Also he never pays attention at traffic lights. I always have to say its green. Do you think we've spent too much time together this week?
