She has her learner's permit. She can four-wheel drive in the woods on all kinds of machines but town is vastly different, and far more dangerous.

It may not be a big surprise, but before we left the property I had one condition: when I say "slow down", you take your foot off the gas, you put it on the brake. I don't care if you agree. You are wrong. Do it immediately. She cooperated, and practiced. Overcoming sheer stubborness.

Town was crazy traffic today, but we had Kim Chee withdrawal. Made a run to get the Korean powder and fish oil to make a batch & get other supplies. All the churches had let out and people went shopping. In a bad spot I said "slow down". And incredibly, some idiot in oncoming traffic turned right across heavy moving traffic and the only reason why we could stop in time was because someone slowed down. I mean it was screaching tires for all of us, with the guy on our right too. It could have been really bad.

So she's downstairs making Kim Chee instead of pulling glass out of her forehead.

Have her drive in the back roads where its not a heavy traffic, still have stoplights and stop signs but less cars. Thats where I practiced when I tried to learn how to drive. Then, I chose middle of weekday to drive in the highway when it was less traffic, just on/off the same ramp until I learn to merge better in the highway.

My ex got a flat on the freeway and pulled into the emergency lane in the middle of the freeway to change the tire. A cop stopped and told her she couldn''t change the tire there.

She argued with him for a minute and then gave in.

He told her he'd follow her with his lights on so she wouldn't get hit while she made it off the highway. Then he was giving her directions over his loudspeaker to the nearest place

where she could get someone to change the tire for her. She didn't understand something he said so she slammed on the brakes. He plowed right into her. Nobody got hurt

but the city picked up the bill for that little accident. I hope that cop learned his lesson :lol:

My wife drove in the Philippines, so teaching her driving in America has been a bit easier. I've had to unteach her a few bad habits though. But since my SUV was really too big for her to drive properly, she can't rest her heal while foot is on the gas, I've set her up with behind the wheel. They'll be teaching her parallel parking and how to handle the freeways better. They'll also take her in their smaller vehicle to her behind the wheel test. I'm guessing that will be less stress on our relationship. :dance:
