Default PSA for those of you traveling through WY

Those of you that are from out of state there is this thing we call a stop light and after a certain time it will turn to a flashing yellow and red... For those of you who dont understand a flashing red doesnt mean you can roll the intersection and stop in the middle of it when traffic is coming from the other side. I swear if I had had a bull bar or a cattle guard I would have smoked that dumb broad because the law would have been on my side and I would have liked a new front end on the truck for free lol. Thank God idiot days is over in 2 days it has been 2 weeks of stupid out of state drivers and failed traffic laws left and right. I just had to vent, I shouldnt have to lock up the brakes on the truck when I have the right away to avoid some dumb bottle blonde bimbo in her suv.

seems confusing to me, why would you have both flashing? here yellow flashing means the other side has a red flashing light and has to stop.

I had the flashing yellow as did traffic oncoming to me. She was to the right and was perpendicular to me but she blew thru the flashing red. By law I had right of way since I had flashing yellow and she blew a red light in essence. It is just the fact that even following the law u still have to be on the offensive.

Come here and watch all the roundabouts. I have 5 of them within about a mile of my house. You don't stop if your inside the roundabout, and stay in your darn lane.

You also yield to anybody in the roundabout, as they have the right of way. People mess that one up hardcore in Florida, even though every single one has giant signs stating the fact.
