    I am going to answer your question by giving you a true life story that I experienced with one of my elderly clients that hopefully helps you to see the "complexity of life" issues we all have to face. I have an elderly lady that has been a client for years, We have grown old together. She has saved money and has continued to work every day in spite of my objections. Her brother was in a nursing home and she went to see her brother without fail at least twice a week. The path she had to travel included one of these "turn lanes" that clears the traffic to turn left while the other lanes supposedly had the red light. One day she was making that left turn and a motorcycle hits her right hand side whell panel as she is turning. The motorcycle flies over her car and the driver is killed. The investigating officer ticketed my client for "failing to yield right of way".
    Please remember my client has money. What if that "family" of that deceiased motorcycle driver sues my client for "wrongful death"?
    I knw we all look for ways to save money but how often are "penny wise and pound foolish?"
