Driver’s Corner

“If you were 23 times more likely to win the Lotto, you’d feel REALLY lucky right? Text and drive and you are 23 times more likely to crash.” Those wise words are from @DontTwive, who also posted a link to an interactive map of texting bans by state. Unsure of the laws in your state? > Check here

And Finally…

On Tuesday, Volkswagen USA (@VW) tweeted this: Who taught you how to drive? That one simple question brought back so many memories learning to drive behind the wheel of my Plymouth Gold Duster (loved that car!). Memories of an extremely patient father teaching me how to be both a confident and cautious driver, and in the days before GPS and smartphones, how to read a map to get where I was going. He was a truck driver, and to this day, I can’t parallel park without his voice in my head saying, “I could park my truck in there. You’ll fit.” These are wonderful memories for me. Who taught you to drive? Tell us your story.

Have a nice weekend. Safe travels.
