An 82-year-old woman received a $114 ticket for taking too long to cross a street. Mayvis Coyle said she began shuffling with her cane across Foothill Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley when the light was green but was unable to make it to the other side before it turned red.

She said the motorcycle officer who ticketed her on Feb. 15 told her she was obstructing traffic.

"I think it's completely outrageous," said Coyle, who described herself as a Cherokee medicine woman. "He treated me like a 6-year-old, like I don't know what I'm doing."

Thank god, nothing pisses me off more than something like that. This afternoon I was drivig to the store and about 100 yards in front of me there are some junior high girls crossing the street, slow, intentionaly trying to obstruct traffic. They actualy stopped in the middle of the centre lane to talk while traffic was coming. I wanted so bad to hit them; in the end I just swerved around them, leaning on the horn. They jumped into the next lane and flipped me off. They then had to dive to the sidewalk to avoid getting hit by another car that was on the same page with me. I dont care weather you are 7 or 107, if you cannot cross the street like you have somewhere to go, dont cross the street

I'm sure we've all got our pet traffic peeves.
One of mine is people so immersed in their cellphone conversation, they don't realize how they're driving. Today I saw a woman make a left turn in sloooooow motion across 4 lanes of traffic as she talked on the phone. :shakeno:

Heh, I had an old woman in front of me at a redlight just last week. The light turned green and she wasn't moving. You can't go straight, only turn left or right, we were in one of two left turning lanes. The other lane is moving along through the light while I'm sitting behind this old woman, so I honk my horn. She looks both ways into the intersection and just sits there. I honk my horn again and she looks into her rear view mirror like a *******. I ended up eventually getting into the other turning lane before the light turned red again, who knows wtf happened with her.

Ah, young PassRush. One must confer to understand that ones situation is only constrained by his karma. The art of ones being is defined by his purity of mind. He, who with great purity of body, of soul, has, in turn, great purity of mind. It is with this great purity of mind, grasshopper, that one shall evade young crossing girls. It is with this great purity of mind, grasshopper, that one shall evade hot flying coffee, and rich housewife saliva. Follow me, young grasshopper, into the garden of purity, and become one with PassRush.

the sad part is some old people are alone and have no one to help or watch them and have limited means of travel and ways to support themselves and society can not help all of them

I really do hope to be the rare breed that moves at a decent speed in my old age. I won't hold my breathe.

Why is it that loosing 30 seconds to an old lady trying to get to the other side of the road does not bother me that much???

I mean, I'm going to get home ultimately, what is the point of fining a woman that still needs to get to places and does not have the ability? I know for a fact I would have been pissed if someone did that to my grandfather when he was trying to reach the grocery store or go out for a walk in which he exercised a little after in general not being able to do it?

We will all be there at one point, old and people are going to hope we where not allowed on the streets, and I honestly still want to live life when I am 80, and live it with all the freedom and all the benefits that life in itself is supposed to have.
