Matt taught me to use a certain device in your car to relieve that stress: The horn. Use it whenever someone speeds straight through a light in front of you. Use it whenever those last two stragglers at an intersection turn left across your path after you have the green. I caught a woman who did that in front of me and then got stuck at the end of a row of stopped cars, having no choice but to block the intersection for 15 seconds while I had a green light. She looked increasingly embarassed as I continued honking, as well she should have. If shame won't work, hopefully $90 tickets will.

San Diego has these same devices installed at a lot of the busy intersections, one thing that most people don't know is that there is a delay (maybe 10-15 seconds) after the light turns red for those stragglers between lights. They were shut down about a year or so ago because of so many accidents. Now they are being re-activated after increasing the lag time of the camera after the light turns red.
