In lieu of Linky Friday…
This week! Anglosphere, Labor, Gaming, Colonization, Transportation, and a Video!
This week includes Nature, Violence, Culture, Urban Design, and Government! It does not include an animated gif. It almost did, but I value you too much.
Years and years ago, a NJ state trooper told me that their normal practice in the situation where someone pulled out and an oncoming car struck them was (a) if the oncoming car hit the rear of the car that pulled out, the driver of the oncoming car was ticketed for failure to have their vehicle under control; or (b) if the oncoming car hit the side of the car that pulled out, the driver of the car that pulled out was ticketed for failure to properly yield the right-of-way.
Of course, around that same time, New Jersey magazine ran a story about how to be a NJ driver that included tips such as "Never make eye contact with the driver of an approaching vehicle. If you don't make eye contact, then you can pull out and it's up to them to avoid you."
