Even stopped cars can pose a risk…

I was on my Wing this morning approaching a rather large intersection from the left lane with a green light for my side. I backed off the throttle slightly, covered the clutch and brake, and then noticed an SUV in the right lane several car-lengths ahead slowing down. The SUV continued to slow and came to a complete stop at the bulk line (remember, the light is green).

As normal, I scanned the area and noticed another vehicle to my right but it was not slowing (the driver was on his cell phone). This had “crash” written all over it. As I passed the now stopped SUV on my right, I heard the unmistakable sound of screeching tires.

No, there was no crash…the second driver managed to stop just before rear-ending the SUV. And why was the SUV stopped at the green light? I can’t say for sure but did notice as I passed, the driver happily yapping away on her cell phone.
