Dear Fellow Drivers

Dear Fellow Drivers,

Learn to drive.  Please.

It’s tempting to leave it at that, but that’s not much of a letter, now is it?  So, some background on my request…I see more stupidity on the roads that really is necessary!

And now some helpful hints…

Turn your lights on when it’s dark.  Don’t depend on your fancy car to do it for you because apparently it’s sensor is broken or its not that fancy or something!  Either way, turn your lights on!

When turning right at a green light, do not motion to the drivers across the intersection (who would be turning left for anyone following along) to go ahead of you.

When at a four way stop, the driver who stopped first goes first.  There is no honor in waiving everyone out in front of you until all the other lanes are clear of traffic.

When at an intersection where you have no stop sign but the cross road does (as is often the case for incoming traffic in parking lots), you don’t have to stop.  They do.

When driving, pretend that other cars have a bubble around them.  The larger the vehicle, the larger their personal space bubble is.  Respect it.

You are not a pinball.  Do not bounce between the sides of your lane.  You make others very nervous.  That’s not nice.

I’m not short and I hope this doesn’t sound elitist or mean, but if you can’t see over the steering wheel – do something about that!  I feel like you should be able to see the road and surrounding buildings, cars, and maybe signs to be able to drive.

That’s all for now.  That’s all I have from the ten minute drive from home to the Y.  But that’s more than enough for such a short drive!  Don’t you think?

So, in conclusion, I’ll try to stop yelling so much (and scaring my poor daughter) if you learn to drive.  Deal?



p.s.  A little note for pedestrians…dark clothes in the dark isn’t the brightest idea you’ve had.  It’s right up there with crossing whenever you please and using the median as your sidewalk.
