The light turned red and we stopped. The classy little convertible with an elderly couple behind us honked their horn. Four more honks and I’d had enough! I jumped out, smiled, and said, ‘there’s no turn on red’! Mrs. Convertible scowled at me and said, ‘it’s green now’! I jumped back in the car and we made the right hand turn over the railroad tracks.
Thankfully, it was my husband behind the wheel and not our 15-year-old daughter who is learning to drive. Impatient drivers are nerve-wracking enough to the experienced driver, think of the newbies trying to handle Mr. and Mrs. Convertible on top of driving. That’s enough to rattle a few cages.
Of course we want to protect our daughter from such silliness but feel so helpless. There is one small thing we can do that could possibly deter a few drivers and may even put a smile on their face as they reminisce the good old days!
Student Driver Printable
Our daughter will get to sport a student driver printable next time she hits the road! It’s all ready for her, printed on cardstock, laminated, and smile worthy!
As for Mrs. Convertible, my husband looked in his rear view mirror to see her mouthing ‘sorry’.
Upon making her right hand turn, Mrs. Convertible probably saw the ‘no turn on red’ sign and realized her annoying mistake of honking impatiently.
Please just know that I have no idea if it is legal or not to use a Student Driver printable sign. Check it out for your area because there’s no way I can be responsible for a ticket. Nope! Not me!
