Wrong Way Drivers

What is WITH people? I encountered not one, but TWO wrong-way drivers this lunch. The first guy was ahead of me, and wanted to turn into a street on the left that was on the other side of a median. So he cut across to the OTHER side of the street (against traffic) at an intersection, and swooped into the desired street. Eep. Glad there was no one coming on the other side, right then.

A few blocks later, I'm sitting in the right-hand lane (of two, on my side of the median) at a light and this guy makes a left into the empty lane on my left, on my side of the median. (Maybe he picked up the vibes of the first guy, and was avoiding a head-on encounter with Mr. I-Want-to-Turn-Left?)

Has this been declared Wrong Way Driver Day or something??
