Overzealous female driver, non-story.

I can remember the fourth of Apri;, drivin' through the parking lot
And I can still hear the old car's screeching tires as the car zoomed ahead
Airbag deloyed, car zoomed ahead


Crashed in the bayou

Everyone does this in Shreveport. It is the easiest way to make the escape from the gangs or Baptists. Or Baptist gangs. Or just to escape from Shreveport. Or to be in the Independence Bowl.

"The Aristocrats" would be more fitting given the headline.

Lesson one: Here's the brake. Use it lots, 'stopping' the most important function of a car.
Quiz one: What's the most important function of a car?
Test one: Show me the most important function of a car.

grandad taught me how to drive a stick at the tender age of 10, with his half-century old tractor(goddamn machine is STILL kicking along 20 years later - dad's had it for the last ten. he cannot get it to die), in the big-ass fields and hills outside the family farm in vermont.

we're talking empty multi-acre fields here. within a half hour i had managed to scrape one of the fenders(as grandad put it, 'scratched it right off'), on the ONE tree in the field, driven it into, then out of, the pond(WHY the farking thing has a snorkel is beyond me), and then rolled it up on one side, where it just sort of stayed there spinning in place until the carb chocked from being turned sideways(with me clinging to the driver's seat).

good times.

/pretty good driver actually, NOW.

And all the 85-year-olds are gloating, "Hah, see? We're not the only ones who do it! Now get out of my way, I have to get to the farmer's market before it closes."

Rufus, is that from Ghost Story?

Also, they never mentioned whether the baby came from the car...

No kidding. Either do the Not news/News/Fark thing OR the "[list of crazy things]. Then it gets weird" format, but don't try to combine the two.

A 14 year old getting a driving lesson with her family at 8:30 is news worthy to subby? Sounds like a boring existence.

Didn't everyone drown the last time this happened? Or at least someone drowned; maybe the mother? I think it was a couple of years ago in Florida.

It ends up a bit long that way:

Not news: 14-year-old drives, Doo-da, Doo-da,
Lessons in the parking lot, oh Doo-da day

News: at 8:30,
With her family,
and the baby in the vehicle,
somebody call the police!

Fark! She hits another car, Doo-da, Doo-da,
Air bags deploy but she keeps on driving, oh Doo-da day

Then it get real weird!
Penis, Aristocrats!
Does she A) or B) or C) ?
France surrenders at last

Reminds me of the story of a friend's grandfather. Way back in the day, they had a couple of rich guys who owned the only two cars in town. They managed to have a head-on collision and the town went back to zero cars for a while.

Can you get a permit at 14?

No it doesn't.

Ummmm. Teaching someone how to drive with a baby in the car is not the smartest thing to do.

/But I guess they know that now.

well as long as everyone learns something.

I farked up on my first time driving a standard... didn't hit anything... that did any damage anyway.

/learned to drive before having a permit, on public roads. It isn't that uncommon in some places. Probably not the best idea though.

Kids should first learn to drive on a simulator so they can get the basic controls down. Experienced drivers just don't realize the amount of skill it takes to operate separated pedals, steering, and such required for driving.

Personally my kid first learned to drive on a motorcycle (offroad). That'll teach 'em real quick because if you punch the wrong lever there you end up on the ground or with a broken neck.

yeah the age was fine. Baby in the car - well probably should be avoided.
Permit not necessary on private property, though permission probably would be proper.

/yeah the store would never give permission because liability

1st lesson myself at 14 in a field.

taught each kid by 14. public and private roads. if you get them young, I think they still have a little fear which they can then associate with the car forever. which is just fine,a few thousand pounds at your command deserves respect.

Bah. I had my learners permit when I was 14. Didn't run into any damned cars either.

Of course, I'm a guy, so you'd expect that.

I remember riding in the car in the eighties when my older sister was learning to drive. She pulled up to an intersection and stopped. The traffic going past was fast moving yet bumper-to-bumper. My sister looked at my mother who was riding in the front passenger seat and asked "Should I wait?"

My mother couldn't even answer. Those of us in the back seat started wailing "Wait! Yes, for G-d's sake, wait!"

Later, when older sis had her license, she trained sister #2 and me to hop out of her car, go into the road, hold up our hands like traffic cops, and "direct" traffic so she could pull out without waiting. She would pick us up in the intersection.
