This morning, I was stopped at a light on Woodroffe. It's in a construction zone, but since traffic is only one way, there's not really an impact to North-bound traffic.
Anyway, I had been stopped at the light for a while - probably at least 30 seconds - and suddenly I felt a jolt.

looked in my mirror, still trying to figure out what was going on, and
she waved in what I assume was intended as an apology. I got out of my
car to see if there was any damage, and she yelled "Sorry!" out the

the car, closed the door, and put on my seatbelt. As soon as I started
moving, she switched to the other lane, sped past me, and cut me off.
