There’s a ditch there, you’ll get stuck.

I very rarely post on Claycord but had to on this one. What is wrong with people? Even if there wasn’t a ditch, why would anyone in their right mind think it is ok to just make a u-turn in the middle of a street?
lol, can’t drive.
Forget the ditch–its illegal– but people around here don’t care about the laws
Gotta try though…
even if you drive an infinity?, and I hope it
was a passenger that took that photo.
Remember, two wrongs don’t make a right,
but three do.
I think I can make it.
Wife: Don’t you even think about it.
I can make it.
Wife: Don’t do it, don’t you dar…
Morons. And #3 is right. Ever see how people approach stop signs in Clayton? They usually roll right through and don’t stop.
And we have another candidate for the Darwin award!
Just this last Thursday, I saw a white sub-compact car stuck in the same situation. On my return trip (1 hr. later), the people were still sitting there. It appears this is happening more than I thought. Mental giants..
So if you can’t make a U turn where’s the sign saying no U turn.
They would probably think the sign was a dare… lol
Good old college try
Can’t teach stupid…
Bet ya didn’t know, they’re building “stupid” traps.
I drove down ygnacio at about 10:30 this morning, looks like maybe a bit before this guy, and saw someone do the same thing. They were lucky and did not get stuck, but all of us behind her loved getting the gravel thrown up on our cars, not! When people pull this, it freaks other drivers out, and will cause an accident, and they’ll probably drive off!
It is actually legal to make a u-turn in the middle of many streets.
There doesn’t need to be a sign because it’s illegal to make a u-turn across two sets of double yellow lines.
Got your truck stuck?
Can’t fix stupid either! Wonder how some of these folks get a drivers license.
People just don’t care, they do whatever the hell they want
There’s another $300 at Big O.
Jerk. There is a traffic light up ahead. If you must make a u-turn, drive a little (save a lot.)
Sorry but illegal aliens and Yhe PhunTard are exempt from laws or common sense.
I’m amazed at the foolishness of drivers in this area!
I’m sure he’ll get fined. (Not!)
Uh, soild double yellow lines…
Traffic laws and signs are really more of a guideline and suggestion than absolute rules.
that 90% of the claycordians here do this on a daily basis.
They just don’t care.
I did it years ago in a little POS ’74 mustang. No problem. It was an emergency tho, not normal driving habit to do such a bizarre thing… having lived here all my life I usually know where I’m going.
I still wish I could have taken a photo of the car on Contra Costa Blvd. that was driving down the road with a gas station hose attached to it’s gas fill intake pipe.
Any relationship to the owner buying a car from a company partially owned by the French Government?
I can freely say that in my 4 + decades of driving that road it never occurred to me to try that.
Just wondering who took the photo? The driver? While driving? If I am wrong, I apologues, hopefully it was a passenger reaching over the driver to take it, but still. Even if stopped on a road, you cannot use your cell phone, that goes not only for texting, but talking or photographing..
Why didn’t they just drive to the next light and make a U-turn legally?? Oh that’s right. They can do whatever they want……Morons.
I sure agree with you Silva!! Me too. I would never try to pull that How dumb is that?

How about the fools who use the TURN ONLY lane on Ygnacio Valley Rd, turn on Oak Grove and then immediately flip a U-Turn on Oak Grove so they can get back on Ygnacio Valley, getting in front of all the people who wait their turn.
That used to irritate me back when I had to turn left onto Oak Grove to get to Northgate, and we’d watch people turn right and make that immediate U-turn and blow through Ygnacio Valley. It would be easy enough to put in enough of a median on Oak Grove to prevent the U-turns.
wrong one lol
