Rules of the road, SCV style

Regarding The Signal’s Letter to the Editor “Driving in Santa Clarita: Some rules of the road” (March 23, 2013):
When I learned how to drive, there were three emphatic rules that my parents instilled in me and insisted upon, which I, in turn, passed on to my kids: safety, courtesy and patience.

Santa Clarita motorists seem to be lacking in all three of these areas. They live by these rules:
Speed is of the essence; don’t use directional signals; pass others, even if you wind up waiting at the next signal. Hot-dog to show off, play your music too loudly (if that is what you call music), and flip off others — (the men are the worst culprits but the women are pretty good at it).

But for the driver who is concerned about safety, courtesy and patience: just raise your hand when being flipped off; that will indicate love and a thank you — and frustrate the flipper.

At this rate, soon the Sheriff’s Department will start taking crime reports online.

Heed safety, courtesy and patience and you won’t have any run-in with the police.

It’s very important to remember no texting or talking on you cellphone while driving. Strict rules are being enforced by the police for texting and talking on the cellphone while driving as of April 1, and that won’t be a joke.
