My 16 yo daughter got her driver's license Friday. She drove to the movies to meet friends that night and when she exited the theater, she had left her lights on and the car was dead. She had to call Dad to jump the car. Saturday, she drove to WalMart and when she got back, she told me a guy ran her off the road. Inquiring further into the incident, she admitted she was trying to pass him as two-lanes merged into one. "I didn't want to stay behind him, Mom. He was driving too slow!" AND THEN as we were driving to a restaurant last evening, she made a left turn in front of on-coming traffic and we almost got broadsided. She was under the impression she had the right of way. "ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE A GREEN ARROW!!!!!!!!!!!!" I shouted. Her reply, "Chill out, Mom. You're gonna pop an artery!"
Anyway, I have restricted her to just driving with me or her dad for a little while longer. She is thoroughly p!ssed off at me for the moment.
Please pray for us and anyone in Indiana driving blissfully unaware that another teen has been released to the streets. . .

Oh, yes! I dished out $328.00 to Sears Driving School in August for 30 hours of classroom instructions and 6... yes, I said just '6'... hours of ACTUAL DRIVING TIME!
She is terrified of the interstate and hasn't attempted it yet. We are on the Southside of Indy, so stay on I-65, just drive through without stopping and you should be okay. Just look straight ahead, make no sudden moves, and most important of all . . . if you have a teenage BOY in your vehicle, PLEASE hide him in your trunk! LOL!
P.S. I don't worry about the arteries so much as the gray hair that is slowly becoming resistant to any kind of dye...
