Do Not Block The Fucking Box...Idiot

People.....this isn't fucking hard to understand, but I suppose the terms used might confuse you. You know when you drive through an intersection in a busy area and there is a sign that says, "Don't Block the Box"......that isn't just a crazy random sign, it means something.

Where I'm from we don't call it "the box" we refer to it as the intersection...however, it doesn't take one (well one with a reasonable amount of brain cells left) long to realize that the "the box" refers to the intersection and that is what the sign is asking you not to block.

Not that we have established that box=intersection (look at the lines on the 4 way intersection, it looks like a box.....or at least thats where I think that term came from...)..... lets move on to the "do not block part".

Basically.....if there is not room for your car to roll completely *through* the intersection, you should not proceed through the light until there is room.

Yes, this might mean sitting at a green light, and yes idiots will honk, but if you do decide to go, you'll simply prevent the people on the intersecting road from passing by you and increase the chance that you will be mowed down by a crazy metro bus driver.

So....don't get into the intersection if you cannot make it all the way across and fit behind the car you're following.

Thank you!

Yes, we would call it an intersection over here.

"Don't block the box" sounds like the female equivalent of cock blocking.

If only. Now, that would be a self correcting problem. Right?

If a few people got mowed over - word would spread fast, and they'd be less likly to put themselves in that position.

The default attorney is right. Sometimes when I'm not blocking the box and the drivers behind me are fa-reaking out, I amuse myself by thinking of it that way.

Other than slapping people in the head with the Don't Block the Box sign, I don't how else to get through to them.
