• Seatbelt law?

    Anyone else think there shouldn’t be a law to wear seatbelts? It should be by choice only. Considering buses don’t have any seatbelts and cars never used to, people also don’t normally wear them on coaches, why is there even a law to wear them in cars?

    I failed my road test twice now. Kind of embarrassed about it but I want to move forward and fix my mistakes and pass. I'd appreciate any helpful advice to help me understands my mistakes better because the examiner just gave me the receipt saying try again next time and didn't really go over what I did wrong (except the parallel parking). Thanks in advance! My Receipt had: Parking, backing : Fails to adequately observe/ use caution = 10 pts Fails to anticipate potential hazards= 10pts Vehicle control : Delayed braking = 10pts Poor judgement approaching intersections = 10pts -My first mistake was that I got stopped at parallel parking because he said I backed up too close to a mailbox. If it was a regular driver they wouldn't even call it close but I understand that the examiners more strict on the distance. - Potential hazards I think he meant the mailbox as I was parallel parking? -The vehicle control or braking I don't really understand because I slowed down at all stop signs always stopping right before it into a complete stop and then go out slowly see left or right for any oncoming cars. - Poor judgement on intersections. I was quite unsure of this too because I was behind a car signalling left and the car made the left first and then I turned after waiting a little and checking for passing cars. Unless I was too slow? It's alot but I'd appreciate anyone helping me go over these mistakes.

  • Who has the right of way in this scenario in Michigan?

    Best answer: In Michigan, pedestrians always have the right of way. When the pedestrians have the walk signal, that means that oncoming traffic has the red light.

  • Is it a good idea to not allow people with alcholic beverages, cigarettes and drugs into my car?

    Best answer: I too have a few rules about riding in my car: 1. No contraband! This is a little broader statement, it bans drugs and many other things which would give reason to have my car confiscated. It does allow a person to have tobacco products which does not bother me. 2. Wear your seat belt! 3. Hang on! Do not tell me to... show more

    4. Pray! It never hurts to have the Lord looking out for us.

    Alright, so earlier today after I got home from school, I decided to take my dog out for a walk. After about ten minutes of walking, I was in another neighborhood where I noticed a navy blue minivan slowly driving next to me. I pretended to be on my phone because I wasn’t sure whether or not it was someone I knew and I wanted to avoid conversation. However, once I turned to the side and looked, I saw what appeared to be a grown man, maybe late 20’s; early 30’s, leaning over his passenger seat as if he was about to roll his windows down and talk to me. I got back on my phone and he sped up but after about 10 seconds he stopped in the same spot for about two minutes. I started walking slowly because I was scared to pass his vehicle, and my dog was taking her time sniffing and I was kind of rushing her. So, out of fear and nervousness, I continously looked at the vehicle and casually got on my phone as if I was texting someone. I kept staring at the vehicle waiting for it to continued driving, but it didn’t, at least not until another car showed up. When another car turned the corner and drove in the other lane, the minivan drove forward but thenhh made a U-turn, facing my direction. It drove forward at a relatively slow pace and passed me.

  • Is it best to always drive the speed limit?

    Best answer: It isn't about getting tickets; it is about driving safely. The most expensive ticket is less then about the least expensive accident, not to mention injury and death.

    Best answer: It isn't about getting tickets; it is about driving safely. The most expensive ticket is less then about the least expensive accident, not to mention injury and death.

    It is not always safe to go as fast as the speed limit but it is never smart to go faster than the limit. Stay out of the way of fools who are speeding. I found when I stuck to no faster than the posted limit I had less trouble with tailgaters. When I was going 3-5 mph faster than the limit idiots would try to "push" me to go faster. If I would go 4 over, why not 6, then 8, then 10 and 15.... A driver has to be pretty bad to be swayed by a tailgater, so tailgaters are hoping they are following a bad driver too closely. That gives you a glimpse into the brain of a tailgater.

    Keep out of the way and keep within the limit, and you are doing the best you can in almost every situation.

  • Is running to late to work an excuse to speed?

    Best answer: Not only is it no excuse, it is useless. Think about the situation: they are going to be late if they do not speed and they are going to be late if they speed... a whole lot later if they are pulled over. Do they think their boss will say, "Well, at least Willoughby was only 12 minutes late rather than 17... show more

    Calling ahead - before they get in the car - that they are running late will be a lot more effective than speeding will ever be.

  • Tips on how to approach curves?

    For sharp turns, do I do hand over hand steering? I tend to slow down a lot and make slight turns on the wheel. I'm afraid that I'll flip the vehicle over if I'm driving over 15mph
