Has anyone ever seen anyone stop on the opposite side of a divided highway?


On William Floyd Parkway (a divided highway) I always stop because I know I'm supposed to, but it scares the crap out of me when I see cars in my rear-view mirror coming at me at 65 mph.

Turning in front of a stopped bus with his reds flashing and a stop sign out and letting children off is not a good idea. Could you get a ticket , I'm not sure but it's still not a good idea. A child could be crossing that intersection. Just because a bus is stopped at the intersection , that doesn't mean a child won't be crossing to the other side. I've been driving a school bus for 12 yrs and I still get people blowing by the bus from behind and coming toward the bus with the reds flashing and the stop sign out. I am very aware of this and make sure everything is clear before I let any children proceed. Even if you get the offender's plate number the police are powerless to do anything about it unless they see the violation .... On a highway you are supposed to stop on both sides, notice I said supposed to.! On that diagram if you make a left turn you are passing in front of the bus. If you you make a right turn you are not.

Can you get a ticket for it? Sure you can, you can get a ticket for any violation, real or not. I got a ticket for "No rear window" one time. Not obstructed, (and lacking two side mirrors) No rear window. Went to court with it, the look on the judge's face was priceless

One of the boys was writing equipment violations, telling the driver you have 10 days to repair a light or windshield.
It's 24 hours for a lighting defect. A cracked windshield 375-22 VTL wasn't. It was a regular ticket.
In Verbal Judo, for traffic stops. If you pull a driver over for moving violation and the vehicle has a cracked windshield, expired Inspection and the driver was nice. You can tell them that you let them off the mover but did write the non mover. Every job has one...

Yeah, this particular guy was well known for being a jackass. His opening statement of "Do you know why I pulled you over?" was met by "No, I don't" because I really didn't do anything that time. He went right to "You have no back window". My reply was "and?" He wrote the ticket and that was that
