There is an intersection by me that I have NEVER had to yield at, I guess I was just lucky that the lights stopped traffic that would come my way. One day I went through the intersection and almost hit a police car. He wasn't happy as I had a starbucks between my legs, a cigarette in one hand and a cell in the other. His first words were "how in the h*ll are you even driving, which hand do you plan to hold the wheel with"?
He realized I was on autopilot and just doing what I always did, gave me a warning.
Needless to say I always look before I yield at intersections.
