But what if there are ninjas? Aliens? Pirate Monkeys? Do I still have to turn right?

It never fails to dismay me how many people think that there is invisible small print on very simple rules. Or, more commonly, that the rules don't apply to them because they are special.

If, to the right, there were cars in a crash, ambulances and blood all over the place. Then could you perhaps...? No? Probably just cause another crash, then. Better bring out the coffee and snacks and sit tight. LOL.

The DPW folks make special signs that say things like NO PARKING (except for me), DO NOT ENTER (except for me) etc.

The problem is the qualifier is in invisible ink.

I nearly got creamed once by somebody who thought it was ok to drive the wrong way on a one way street because his house was two down from the corner.

Signs are just someone else's opinion.
Just because someone took the time to make the sign and place it to prevent an accident, or something stupid, doesn't mean it was meant for me.

@DP,

I forgot about the invisible ink. I will have to address that issue with Traffic Management Department for the city.
