Here's a good one..

I see intersection safety has gone out the window recently.

Hillside and Blanshard in Victoria - Blanshard is 6 lanes, Hillside 4 (not including the left turn lanes).

Blanshard, all 6 lanes of it, has the green light. Hillside obviously has the red.

A car in the far right lane of Hillside is inching forward across the crosswalk. As soon as he got his chance, he hit the gas and made a left turn. Left turn, from the right lane, on a red light across 6 lanes of traffic.

No collision, but the bus driver standing waiting to cross the road and I had a good chuckle about it.
Consider reading the research before commenting on photo enforcement:

Support Road safety through education, not speed enforcement.

I don't get your point? Wanted to share your story? Yes, bad drivers are everywhere and they are always making dumb moves on the road not just recently...

I hate the people that dont stop at stop signs and try to beat the traffic.. I almost hit a lady in a smart car yesterday. I was coming down the hill, she pulls up to the intersection without a complete stop and goes through the intersection.. She ends up missing my car since I was the only one driving down the hill. So I lay my horn while applying full pressure to my brakes. Then this lady decides to punch her smart car past me. With me almost tboning her ass.. If it wasnt me and probably someone else she wouldve gotten smoked, but the way I think when driving is I always think every car doesnt see me or is a super shitty driver, so I can be prepared to do some defensive driving.
