  1. I had to read it to believe it. You may want to add use Neutral with brake for a Standard, but people that drive them are unlikely to be this careless. Automatics only mean gear selection, they don’t wait for motorists that leave if they are in a gear.

    This is the boneheaded move about what people shouldn’t do which we all do now and then, though usually not as serious.

    But it’s a PERFECT time to bring up the backing up thing. NO ONE should back out of their driveway. That’s how we run over our own kids, pets, bikes, et al. In fact, we don’t have as good a view of the road. People die because we back onto the road right in front of them. It happens regularly. If you want, I’ll list news accounts of them.

    Why do people choose to back out of the driveway? Because it’s so much easier to drive straight in instead of backing in. But backing into our driveway or garage is much safer than backing out. We’re substituting easy for safe and it costs us lives.

      Thanks for the comment Doug. I’ve written about backing before; both with a driveway and in a parking lot. Backing out into traffic is always dangerous. Also, thanks for the “typo” comment.
