Dear Portland Area Drivers,
Please pull ALL THE WAY UP to the stop light when waiting at a red light.
You hanging back 5 yards doesn't help traffic. Three of you idiots all gap 15 feet between the car in front of you and you're occupying the length of a semi truck. No one is going to come ram into and send you into the car in front of you, so you can pull forward a little.
I thought the idea was to spend LESS time on the road, burn LESS gas and waste LESS time. C'mon, we're green, we're leading the fight against excessive waste. Now, pull the fuck up to the goddamn line so other people can make the light.
