The Student Driver Situation
I see a lot of student drivers making their way around the city. They seem to enjoy driving on the comparatively slow streets of my neighborhood. I like to see them when I'm on my bike because they're always so careful, you know you can count on them not to run you down. The cars are easily identified since the law requires they have a big sign on the top that says "student driver." Some of the more enterprising teachers also use the sign to advertise their services, and my favorite is "Student Driver, Grand Prix Lessons." The tiny Kia they use to instruct is the farthest thing you can get from a Grand Prix. I hope that once in a while they have bachelor parties that find the Grand Prix Lessons online and book it thinking it's race driving for their fun weekend in the city.
