“You’re driving down a road. There is nobody behind you. At an intersection there is a car waiting to pull out.
“Does he pull out when you’re 500 feet away? No. 250 feet? No. 100 feet? He goes for it, pulling out in front of you, going slowly and forcing you to brake despite the fact that had they just waited another second, they could have pulled out after you and had all the time in the world to get up to speed.”
