A little humor on Fl. drivers


                               How To Drive In Florida....

   1. Turn signals will give away your next move. A real Florida driver never uses them.


   2. Under no circumstance should you leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled    in by somebody else, putting you in an even more dangerous situation.

  3. The faster you drive through a red light, the smaller the chance you have of getting hit.

  4. Never, ever come to a complete stop at a stop sign. No one expects it and it will result in you being rear-ended.

  5. Never get in the way of an older car that needs extensive bodywork, especially someone from Florida or Georgia. With no- fault insurance the other guy doesn't have anything to lose.

  6. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to ensure that your ABS kicks in, giving a nice, relaxing foot massage as the brake pedal pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it's a chance to stretch your legs.

  7. Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right. It's a good way to prepare for people entering the highway.

  8. Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as a suggestion and are apparently not enforceable in any County during rush hour.


  9. Just because you're in the left lane and have no room to speed up or move over doesn't mean that a Florida driver flashing his high beams behind you doesn't think he can go faster in your spot.

 10. Always slow down and rubberneck when you see an accident or even someone changing a tire. This is seen as a sign of respect for the victim.

 11. Learn to swerve abruptly. Florida is the home of high-speed slalom driving.

 12. It is traditional in Florida to honk your horn at cars that don't move the instant the light turns green.

 13. Remember that the goal of every Florida driver is to get there first by whatever means necessary.

 14. In Florida, 'flipping someone the bird' is considered a polite salute. This gesture should always be returned.

That is HILARIOUS!! It also sounds like some of the San Diego, CA drivers. I'll keep that in mind when I go to visit my uncle.
