STUDENT DRIVER
A DMK Production

Trey is your fifteen year old son and he has a learner's permit.  This means he can drive with a licensed driver over twenty-one in the seat next to him. Trey drives well but needs practice.  You have errands to run and ride with Trey while he drives you around.  Trey enjoys getting in the practice.

Another driver cuts Trey off.  Trey avoids an accident and sounds the horn loudly.  You then look over to see Trey sending a message to the other driver:

I caution him against giving into the temptation, reminding him of incidents such as the one in which a four-year-old girl was shot after a road rage incident involving her father. Better to let things go than provoke some idiot with a gun or one who uses his vehicle as a weapon. Apart from the lecture, I won't punish him.

Embarassed Embarassed Hmmm . . . Trey obviously learned this from someone.

I will agree with Kat. This could end up being a point of safety if he flips off the wrong person.

I also think Trey needs to be acknowledged for being alert and avoiding the accident.

So the other driver cut Trey off; should I now cut Trey's finger off?

"Hands at 2 and 10 Trey - remember?"

Hardly a spanking offense, but I had the same thoughts on potentially provoking the other driver as everyone else did.  I probably will mention that I find flipping people off behind the dash or in my lap has the effect of relieving my frustration without giving offense (Hey, I drive a company vehicle at times - I have to be circumspect).

Succumbing to road rage is a dangerous luxury that can lead to all sorts of dangerous consequences.

I will praise Trey on his (car control) reaction to a potentially dangerous incident before counselling him about the necessity to stay calm at the wheel in an emergency (as he did) and to remain calm and focussed afterwards, accepting that one of his responsibilities as a driver is to avoid the multitude of idiots walking, pedalling and driving on the roads.

I will also say that had I been a driving examiner that I would likely have failed him for that gesture as a sign of immaturity distracting him from the immediate ongoing task of manoeuvring his own vehicle safely.

(My use of the word immaturity should also hit the bulls eye)

Drivers who cut people off are ignorant idiots. They have no respect for others around them. I'm more thankful that we are safe and sound and in some places even the horn ticks off the stupidest of road rage idiots. I will teach him that just yelling things like learn to drive you idiot with the windows rolled up is the much safer option. Razz

I agree with Kat and Jack, whose example in this I follow as well.
