It happens. Happened to me recently actually. So far it's the only time it happened, but I got spanked. 3 lanes each way and I needed to be in the right lane because that lane peels off in another direction. Right lane was packed though and I figured I'd take middle lane and when light turns green, easily get in front of everyone and get over. Last second some dude in a truck gets over into middle lane. Son of a... I scoot to 3rd lane and truck cuts someone off to get back where he was.... Son of a... So now I'm at a red, in the lane furthest from where I need to be. No biggie, I can still take off and get in front of everyone without cutting anyone off if I take off quick. It's a long light, me all by myself in far left lane, no one in middle lane, and right lane with 30 cars in it. As I'm sitting there, a yellow jobbie comes up in the middle. I don't really look at it. I thought it was some sporty import, an MR2, maybe an RX7, etc., so I can still easily squirt ahead and get over. I see yellow car driver looking at me from the side of the eyes though, but I don't actually look. OK, fine, just to be sure, I'm going to tree him and floor it to get out front. So now I'm playing possum, casually sitting there, eyes watching other directions light, but sly like, so he doesn't know, and when their light turns yellow, I know my green is coming. I'm ready. Light turns green and I'm on it, cut a perfect light, and I had a perfect launch. Bye bye suckers! Nope,a second later it sounded like a formula one car flying by. Oh..... It was a damn Lamborghini, and I got spanked lol. I missed my right lane trying to hang with him, but I lost. He was nice enough to toss a wave when I had to peel off on another street to take a different route.
