Most drivers in the Druid City don't realize they're able to do this one little trick. It's totally legal, and it could save you THOUSANDS of dollars.

You won't believe how EASY it is to pull off this one hack. I am about to impart some serious knowledge on y'all; are you ready?

No--seriously. Are you prepared? I am willing to bet that a solid 83% of drivers in Tuscaloosa are completely oblivious to this fact. This knowledge could change (or even save) your life.

Let's do this. Here's the one simple trick no one in Tuscaloosa knows:

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO STOP AT A RED LIGHT.

Wild, isn't it?

When you see a red light, you are actually supposed to STOP your car. I know the instinct of most Tuscaloosans is to say F it and blaze through the intersection, but that is the actual antithesis of what you should do.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO STOP AT A RED LIGHT.

I feel the need to share this knowledge with all y'all after I experienced not one but TWO almost-wrecks yesterday. I was almost t-boned on TWO separate occasions because people were plowing through the red light as if they were completely unaware of the fact that RED MEANS STOP.

Look, I know it's tempting to see a yellow light and hit warp speed so you don't get stuck at the intersection and I, too, am guilty of doing this on occasion...

BUT...

If the light is red, you're supposed to stop. Why do people see a light turn red and decide to go anyway?

It's Mad Max: Fury Road on these streets, so y'all be careful.
