Found this Sign in the Parking Lot

Thought it was a great idea.

Drivers today are so impatient.

It’s good to know that someone in front of you is learning how to drive.

A woman came out of the store and said.”Why is she taking a picture of my car?”

I told her I wanted to remember her good idea for when my grandchildren are learning to drive. I assured her I didn’t take her license plate number.

She said the sign on the car really works. We had a nice conversation about it.

  1. That brought back happy memories for me! When my dad was teaching me to drive …hmm … many years ago he insisted on putting a sign exactly like the one in your photo in his car so other drivers would know I was just learning 🙂

  2. Like your reflection taking the photo!! This car has a rear windshield wiper ….. an “accessory” I long for, esp in the Winter! 🙂
    HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE!

  3. When I was teaching my children to drive I warned them not to pay attention to drivers who were impatient with them because they were too old to remember when they were learning. I love the sign.

  4. It is a good idea. In Britain new drivers have a sign with a big red “L” that means “learner.” The first time I drove over there, using a stick shift, driving on the opposite side of the car and the opposite side of the road, I put one up in the back window of our rental car.

      • I had to do all the driving because my husband never learned to drive a stick shift, and it costs twice as much to rent an automatic over there. I remember stalling the car on a switchback on a steep narrow road in the Lake District, as a shepherd drove a herd of sheep down the road all around us. THAT was a little tense! But I’m originally from the The Motor City, and as soon as we were clear of the sheep, I popped that clutch and we were back in business!
