There are times that living in the city and commuting to two jobs makes me think that I'm not going to live to 40. Yet another close call today, this time while turning left onto my near cross-street. The wretched stoplight at which I turn doesn't have a turn signal, so I was waiting in the intersection at a green light. When the light turned yellow, two people ran it, so I had to wait until the light turned red, as one can legally do when already in the intersection to turn. I started to turn, and a large Lexus pulled out from the car turning left opposite me and tried to run the red light. He swerved just in time and only avoided hitting me full on by about an inch. He, of course, pulled over on the side of the road to check his car after his swerve had forced him to turn (I could see him in the rear view mirror), but he didn't even bother to look and see if I was OK. Wanker. I'm going to hurl.
