My wife and I took my Mom to Red Lobster for her birthday. Mom was giving me directions, and she told me I needed to get over into the right-hand lane. Traffic was heavy, and the small window of opportunity was closing quickly. The problem was — I was in the middle of an intersection, and in Illinois, changing lanes in an intersection is illegal. (This is a law that is either unknown or ignored by every other driver in the state.)
So I was faced with a quandary … Do I obey the law? Or do I obey my mother?
Before you answer, keep in mind that there were no police officers in the car with me. My mother was, and she was pointing with emphasis.
