Won’t Pull Forward Clover

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Here’s another classic Clover – the won’t pull forward Clover:


He is visually or cognitively impaired; leaves at least half a car length (often, a full car length) between himself and the car ahead – effectively taking up 150-200 percent of the space his car would otherwise take up. This means fewer cars can get into a left turn lane, for instance. And fewer cars can make the light when it turns green – both because of the wasted space and also because of Clover’s invariably slow reactions. There is usually at least a 5-10 second delay between the moment when the light goes green and Clover’s car actually begins moving.

  1. These short stoppers are endless aggravating. Around here they block access to turn lanes so people have to sit behind them unable to do RoR or get a green arrow.

    • Agreed. These may be the most irritating clover. They are always at the busiest traffic lights. There’s inevitably 2 or or 3 of them. You wait for 2 or three cycles of the light. Drives me crazy.
