OT but involves driving

Yesterday on the news there was a story about a 44-year old man having a driving lesson and he blew through a stop sign. An officer saw it and stopped him. The officer was a little suspicious and gave him a breathalyzer, which he failed. Yep, he was drunk during his lesson. He was arrested, lost his learners licence and the driving instructor had his car impounded for 30 days. (impounding cars is what we do here for excessive speeding and drunk driving and the owner is responsible)

1. Rest an elbow on the arm rest on the door.

2. Most cars at present have automatic transmissions. This has lead to drivers braking with their left foot while hovering their right foot over the accelerator pedal. (Drivers with manual transmissions operate the clutch pedal with their left foot and brake with the right foot. This reduces the chance of unintentionally pressing down on the accelerator.)

Jemdandy, do you think that automatic drivers use their left and right feet? I don't know of anyone who does that.

Even driving a standard for years, once I switched to automatic, I didn't use both feet for the first few times.

Not knowing how a traffic circle works.

Oh Oh I know - stick out your tongue in concentration when trying to parallel park
