What's your favorite thing to do to get ahead in traffic when it's physically possible but maybe not legal? I refuse to wait in a long line of cars at a light. Especially when it's a 1 or 2 lane road backed up forever. So I use the turning lane to get to the front of the line. The light turns green, I gun it, get back into the proper lane ahead of the long train of cars, and whammo, 20 minutes is shaved off my trip.
