I was just driving along one of our beautiful, tree-lined residential streets here in my hometown of Claremont, California, minding my own business and obeying all traffic laws, when I spotted this huge cactus in multiple bloom.
I pulled an illegal U-turn and parked at a bizarre angle, jumped out (lickily not locking my keys in the car!) and crossed the street, not even looking to see if there was oncoming traffic! HEY! I was checking my camera settings!
Besides, pedestrians have automatic right-of-way! LOL!!
