When I am at an unfamiliar intersection where the sight-line is impeded
or at an intersection that I know is particularly dangerous,
If they are truly impeded or dangerous, they are usually designated as such with a sign that says- no right on red. So we're left to assume that you are; unusually safety conscious, timid or have a hunk of junk that can barely get out of its own way and is a danger to merge unless there is clear line of sight for 1/2 mile.
I prefer to wait for a green light than turn right on red.
I had a crazy crowd me on the left hand side as he passed to show his annoyance that I dared to wait for a green light.
Because he felt it was both safe and prudent to make the turn, he's crazy and annoyed? I think you may have just shown your hand. Because YOU don't think it's safe, then no one should be allowed to progress until YOU dictate...
If you don't feel it's safe, that's fine. Just snuggle over to the right a bit so people who do can swing past and make the turn. How is that affecting you?
