  1. I appreciate your driving critiques!! My father developed major road rage when he moved here. My mother drives in Queens NY & always has a nasty running commentary going while she drives. You should hear her in Oregon! I used to be quite a driver but then I got tickets and there’s only so many defensive driving courses a gal can take. Now I’m always caught giving my kids cheddar bunnies or thinking something over before it dawns on me that the light has changed. Yes, I have become one of THOSE drivers ;)!

    • I’m one of THOSE drivers when it comes to trying to make sure the kids have snacks and toys at the stop lights. And really it’s not so bad that the state generally drives the speed limit, is it?

      • You are right, going the speed limit is an under appreciated thing! However, going the speed limit (or under) in the passing lane while texting or fiddling with one’s phone is nerve wracking!

  2. I think I missed #3 on the real driving test.
