Sometimes, you can get "tractor beamed" onto an off-ramp that you never wanted to be on, or into a turn lane that you didn't see coming. Anytime I head east on 110 coming across Plain St., for instance, I brace myself for the likelihood that someone who was in the turn lane was really trying to go straight. My desire to avoid an accident trumps my desire to be *right* each time, and I gladly yield out of respect not for the other driver, but for that law of physics from senior year about multiple objects not being able to occupy the same space.
Sometimes, though, traffic mishaps just come down to simple operator error. Double yellow lines should be a good indicator, especially when a bunch of cars are headed one way on the right side, and then there are a bunch of other ones stopped about to try and go the other way (the light changed in the time it took me to grab my phone and snap this).
Thankfully, this guy banged a left onto Market and headed in, well, the right direction.
