Jack Baruth on traffic laws

Your thoughts? I don’t run reds, but I will scoot through yellows. I do exceed the speed limit, regularly, but not in an unsafe manner. I only come to a “full & complete” stop at stop signs if there are other cars around (manual transmission - slow to a near stop, and then 2nd gear crawl). Seems like lots of traffic laws are akin to painted lines on the side of the road, not concrete curbs. They’re meant to keep you and other drivers as safe as possible while doing the most dangerous thing most of us will do each day, and to keep everything flowing well.
