I am all about being safe while out on our Utah roads, but there is something I started noticing this summer. Cars in Utah stopping WELL before the line at a light. At first I thought it was because of all of the incoming traffic from other states as most of the cars that I was noticing were from....

California. No worries Californians. You are being extra cautious and I appreciated it. Welcome to Utah.

Welcome but...this is not recommended.

It started getting weird how many cars were stopping oddly before the line. Surely all of these drivers have not been clipped by someone turning too sharply into their lane? Then why on earth are they leaving 1/2 a car length up to a full car length+ before the lines at the lights.

Now granted I still think it is better than covering up the cross walks with your impatient driving, but there are consequences I have been noticing.

When I am behind these particular drivers, who are most of the time slow to start moving as well, most of the time they make it so that at least 2 cars don't make it through the green turn arrow and it starts to back up traffic quickly. Other drivers start getting very impatient causing a bit of short-tempered road rage.

Plus, I have been waiting behind them at several lights that don't turn for a very long time because they are so far back that they aren't tripping the sensor to make the light turn green. It is frustrating.

Then it became a family joke and I was getting text a ton of pictures of it happening. Can someone please explain why this is becoming a thing? And not just in Southern Utah. It's all over the state!

hmmmm

What is happening here? I have asked all of the people I know if they do this, and the answer is no. So I need your help, because apparently I don't know any of these people to tell them to stop it.

We were discussing this at work and a very good point was brought up, everyone is on their phones when we are stopped at lights so that could contribute to the slow start at lights.

We are all guilty of it, especially if we are driving for a long time and we are trying to stay off of our phones while driving.

But if we could just take a second to be aware of what is going on around a us we could avoid the frustration and backing up traffic.

Walmart Is Cracking Down On Utah Customers That Use These

With the price of living skyrocketing, many have returned to scouring the internet for coupons to help feed their families.

Clipping coupons

If you use coupons listen up! Walmart is changing up their policy regarding coupon usage. This isn't just for those using extreme couponing methods either. Walmart will still be accepting manufactures coupons, just some of the ways they are implementing will change. Walmart does not put out their own coupons or accept digital coupons, but does accept manufacturers coupons.

The basic rules haven’t changed, but a couponing website called “Coupons in the News” reported that Walmart updated their coupon policy for the first time in six years in September 2023. One of the biggest changes they noticed in the new policy is that, “Walmart does not give cash back nor will any overages apply to the remaining items in the transaction if the value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item.” That also includes any WIC or SNAP items.

The policy used to allow Walmart to apply those overages to the total price of your order and give you cash back if there was still an overage after your balance was covered.

Another change that was made to Walmart's policy has to do with overriding their computer system to fix or adjust a coupon that wasn't scanning. It either scans and works or you don't get to use the coupon. Taking away the digression and ability of managers and associates to adjust problems or errors is going to be the biggest headache for everyone.  If you thought Walmart was letting computers take over before, with their self check out sweeping out most of the check out lanes in our local Walmarts, we ain't seen nothin yet.

Just remember that the poor associate behind the register has no authority to make a change and should not be yelled at for corporates changes.
