14. Drive. Ok. We are all going to check our phones when stopped at a red light. Better than doing it while moving. Listen for the honk behind you to let you know the when light goes greeen again.
There is, of course, one exception. Waiting in the turn lane for the green, left arrow. There is no texting allowed in this lane EVER.
The Chicago, left, green arrow is fleeting and like soldiers kicking in a door and entering homes in Kabul, we need to get as many troops through it as possible. Go. Go. Go. Any delay will result in several cars not making it through the light and I just can’t bear the thought of that.
Do not grab your phone when stopped in the turn lane.
