Congratulations, I'm a Safe Driver

I just successfully completed online traffic school. I received a ticket back about a month ago, and now, thanks to the progresses of modern technology, I've cut an 8 hour classroom session into a one hour online marathon.

I now feel I've regained the confidence to maneuver the highways of Nashville. So, with my recent graduation (read: completion) of online traffic school, I'll leave you with a couple of vehicle related songs and some handy rules I learned in "class".

Arcade Fire - Keep the Car Running: If exiting the car for any period of time, it is wise to turn off the car and remove the keys from the ignition.

The Decemberists - The Engine Driver: Train crossings should be treated as normal intersections. Come to a complete stop at a set of train tracks. Look left, right, straight ahead, and back left before proceeding.

Marcy Playground - Saint Joe on the School Bus: When approaching a stopped school bus decrease speed, and even if the stop sign has yet to be extended, begin scanning for children.

Silversun Pickups - Rusted Wheel: Car maintenance should be kept up-to-date and regular. Air pressure and wiper fluid wiper fluid should be checked weekly. Before long trips perform a thorough inspection of your vehicle before proceeding.

Speaking of going on long trips, I leave tomorrow for 5 days in Florida (work related, I promise) followed immediately by 3 days in South Carolina (also work related) so this might be my only post for the next week. So, remember, drive safely and never drink and drive.
