My daughter, who has had her license just over 6 months, has joined to the ranks of the ticketed.
It seems that upon leaving school this afternoon she rear-ended another student. There was a line of cars waiting to turn onto the main road. So as each car was able to make the turn the line would creep forward.
My daughter creeped too far and bumped the car in front of her. There was no damage to either car. The girls got out, surveyed the situation, exchanged information and went on their way. But when the girl got home her Mother made her call the police, who in turn came out to each house to file a report.
In the long run, my daughter got sighted for failure to assure a clear distance.
What was funny was listening to her "explain" to me what had happened. When I finally got all the info out of her, I told her that whenever you rear-end someone it's your fault and you're going to get sighted.
"It's not my fault Dad! The car's too friggin long!"
All I can say is.....She's a blonde. :
