when approaching a yellow light
i generally slow down and stop
but during those situations when it’s unsafe to stop
it’s safer to speed up and drive through
i recently noticed
that when accelerating under the light
i lean into it, with my head forward
i’m not exactly sure how or why i started doing this
it’s as if i was crossing a finish line in an very important race
and i just needed that extra few inches.
is it just me?
am i drafting the wind?
is it making my car accelerate faster?
is it my defense when i get pulled over?
“officer, my head was over the line when the light changed, you can check your dashcam to confirm.”
