"Ease up on those stale yellows, but check your rear view mirror as well, for a distant nephew of Fangio.......
About 1 year ago, I was tootling (a technical word) down 290 headed west about 55-60 MPH going no place in particular, a light turned yellow and I slowed at a normal pace to a stop. What to my surprise, I caught a glimpse of a dump truck with all 10 tires locked up, which just barely missed me!
Now, mind you, I don't stop for every yellow, and make my judgements carefully.....
But, it seems to me, that a normal slow stop by an SUV should not cause a dump truck to have to lock up all 10 tires to avoid causing my SUV to shrink preciptously in milliseconds during impact.
Around Austin, stopping for a red light can get you killed!
