Lets just say that some snowbirds have a winter home in Florida
because they can't get a drivers license in their home state. Then some
move here, permanently. They drive down the center of the road, peeking
over the dash, driving 20 miles an hour on highways, they run stop
signs, give a right turn signal and turn left, or rear end you while you
are waiting to make a left turn. When i moved here in 1987 the test
book from the state had a disclaimer on the back cover: "These laws may
or may not apply in the State of Florida." Most drivers her do not take
Drivers Ed. The state gives the driving test on a closed course because
they are afraid to ride with anyone on real roads. They claim the
liability cost is too high, because too many people had accidents during
their driving test.
When I took my test I had to do a turn around in a "Driveway" on the
course. The instructor yelled at me that i didn't look both directions,
and that she was going to fail me. I looked at her and asked, What are
you talking about? It is the last drive on a dead end "street" with a
heavy fence across the end. There was nothing there when I turned in
the "driveway", and if someone comes through the fence and hits me, it
isn't my fault. She started to tell tell me it didn't matter, but I
smiled and said, By the way, I work at a TV station, and I would love to
tell about the poor quality of the test process on the air. I got my
