Default Drivers ED......Yet another rant

Sitting there, almost asleep yesterday....I hear the teacher talking about writing a checklist, 16 things to do when changing lanes on the highway. I can understand memorizing the whole 3 tings to change lanes, but shes talking about stopping, looking away from the road, then checking off each thing as you do it???? If that makes any sense to anything (even a drunken caterpillar is smarter than that!)...... The only thing I have decided from that class, from the crash footage video.....I decided if I have a car that runs 13 or less, Ill have a roll bar put in.

Tonight is my last night there, now the in-cars start

Oh chit...Look out Ohio!

Seriously, though good luck and have fun with it. Stay smart, but have fun. Driving is a great thing as long as you stay safe and alert.

I think you should be 18 to drive . Two many young punks on the road that think it's a game . Good luck . Drive safe ..

18? HA... I have been driving since 14... Not very legally but hey, whatever. I think that helped me when I was "legal" to drive and get my license. I was also racing at that age (Go-karts, dont laugh.. they are fast as heck!) I worked on a farm, and at times we would have to run down the road to another farm to get something.. And well, its not like they are only a little ways down the road.. some where a mile or more.

Yea I had a go-kart when I was in the 2nd grade!!!! And started driving around the neighborhood w/ mom in the 4th grade. Went to COLO and was driving 'burbans in 5th. Definitely helped when I was finally legal.
