Hey! Dumbass driver. You know when you come up to a stop sign or traffic light and you have to stop? Well, there are these things in your lane you have to stop behind. Sometimes it's an 8" white bar. Sometimes its a large white 'X'. Sometimes it's a green box. In all cases you are to stop BEHIND them. Not on them. Not in front of them. Stop getting all bent out of shape if you find yourself having to back up, or otherwise move out of the way, because a bus or large truck needs to turn and take up the space you are not supposed to be occupying. Those pavement markings are there for a very good reason and that reason is not for you to be so fucking ignorant of.
Stop in the proper place
