You were the woman in the BMW turning right from Weir Canyon Road onto Santa Ana Canyon Road, heading west, in Anaheim Hills on July 3 at about 5 p.m. I was the guy turning left onto Santa Ana Canyon Road from the other direction. Here's a tip from the California Motor Vehicle Code: The red light means that you STOP, so that people with the green light, as I had, can go. You 'll also find that nowhere in the Vehicle Code does it say that honking your horn and waving your middle finger makes it okay to ignore the red light. You're a real class act.
