No Turn on Red and Mediation


    Most days I drive past an intersection where there is no turn on a red light.  The intersection must have at least six signs with some in bright lights indicating no turn on red.  The no turn on red light is often found on busy roads with high traffic volume, where right turn on red could cause an accident.  What amazes me is how often I see a car in front of me ignore the signs and make a right turn.  I am not sure if driver did not see the sign or just think the law does not apply to him or her.  The opposite of this is the scene in the 2001 movie “The Mexican” with Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and I had forgotten James Gandolfini.  Brad Pitt is driving an El Camino Mexico and stops at a red light in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no traffic in sight.  The life lesson that applies to mediation is that some people follow the law even if it makes no sense and other people think the law does not apply to them.    As always, you can post any comment about this blog or Divorce Mediation, or just Mediation by following the directions at the right in the green column or at the bottom of this website.
