I'm realizing I need to hurry my countdown along as I move out of Lake Shitty in a couple weeks and will block out all memory of the shithole soon after. So number 7 in my list of things I won't miss: The uncontrolled intersection a block from my place. I'm pretty sure the rule with an uncontrolled intersection is to treat it like a 4-way stop. That means stopping and letting the first person at the intersection go first. In my neck of the woods it's more like an opportunity to play chicken. Hardly anyone stops. They just speed on through in every direction and it's a miracle that I haven't yet witnessed a collision.
