Not like in the old days but I still got away with it... so far. There is a road I travel to and from work. There are 4 lanes. The right most lane at the light goes straight and either must merge or turn right into a mall. Owning a relatively quick Lexux GS 350 AWD, if the lane is backing up to the previous light I will pull up into the right lane and take off from there. I'm never the slow poke and never have traffic pile up behind me. Some people might not like my move but it is totally legal and lots of other people do it. The road is marked straight and turn. The top right to bottom left road is where I was with my car in the circled spot. Today was one such day. The lead car in the left lane is a generic Chevy sedan with dark tinted windows. I pull up beside it about 10 seconds before the light changed. I cut a good light and pull him (assumed, could have been a woman) a fender from the light. I heard a tire squeal but know for a fact my car cannot spin a tire in a straight line on dry pavement. He backed off when it spun and I easily pulled over with a blinker and never broke 35 MPH. He caught up to me and was so tailgated me hard. I could not see anything but the little strip of his hood below the windshield. He was so close on my tail that he set off my blind spot monitor. Since he was so close on my tail, I could see there were lights in his windshield above the rear view mirror. He continues on my rear like he was on a trailer until he turned off, blowing by me to race to a left turn lane for a subdivision. I couldn't get a look at this license plate. It was then I confirmed my suspicions that he was some sort of official vehicle. He had strobes in his grill. I don't know what agency he was with but I'll probably get a ticket in the next few days on trumped up charges. LOL Ever had anything like this?
