I had to set up a large room at my job - for a Driver's Education Session. During a break -- I walked in and asked the teacher a "Right Of Way" question. I was a bit surprised at his answer -- He didn't teach it as "Right Of Way" - a steadfast rule. He asked me about "my safety" in the situation, instead. ( my question was about an "off-set" 4 way intersection -- * I'd have to draw a diagram to explain it perfectly * "The vehicle to the right, has the right of way, correct ?" I said. He answered, "Well, let's face it.....do you trust that rule ?... or do YOU yield and play it safe ?" * * Well.......this concerns me. If it isn't TAUGHT as a steadfast rule .... How is a new driver gonna learn it as a strict rule ? They won't ! When I first learned.....it was an absolute rule. This creates something of a hazard. * And I wonder why so many "rules of the road" don't seem to apply anymore ? * Don't get me started on drivers not yielding, as they enter from the "on" ramp into highway traffic. Is this another rule that is glossed over, these days in Driver's Ed. ? * * And ever witness how EVERY rule of the road goes out the window - when people drive in a large parking lot ?
