As you might know, I am in the process of obtaining a Californian Driver’s license, well, once I’ll have managed to get the behind the wheel test, as it seems that the local administration has lost all evidences of my appointment with them next week…
Test has to be rescheduled…
Anyways, while both Sarah and I were learning for our written test, we couldn’t help but noticing (and then marking) some pretty interesting rules and recommendations of the dos and don’t for California drivers which I’d love to share with you…
On Pedestrians (or “Excuse me sir but could you move your Zimmer frame away?”):
Allow older pedestrians more time to cross the street. They are more likely to die as a result of a crash than younger pedestrians.
On things you must not do (or I must come from another planet):
Do not shot firearms on a highway or at traffic signs.Do not block or hinder a funeral procession.Do not ride, or allow a child to ride a pocket bike on a public street or highway [(...) as ] they do no meet federal safety standards
On driving in the fog (or how would Europe do?):
The best advice for driving in the fog is DON’T. You should consider postponing your trip until the fog clears.
On Safety for Aging drivers (or denunciation is OK if they’re old):
Generally, older drivers, especially over the age of 70, have more crash per mile than any other group [...]. Also it is more difficult for older drivers to recover from injuries suffered in a crash. If you are concerned about an aging driver, see “Referring an unsafe driver”
Most of these make sense but just the way some are written down crack me up!
