A chat about: Drivers Stopping *at* Stop Lines!

We saw this earlier today, in Latham (Albany), NY, and the question is “can there be any worse example of thoughtless driving than completely blocking a crosswalk at a red light?”

I’ve seen this happen countless times and long since lost count of how often I’ve seen pedestrians, including women with babies in strollers, having to go around bad drivers like this one.

However, I don’t recall ever seeing anyone get ticketed by the police for stopping like this…. but they should be!

(As always, our photo was taken by the front-seat passenger, but I hope that goes without saying.)
