Florida Drivers

Posted by October 6, 2018

I got to tell you since I moved to Florida I’ve had more close calls while driving then I did in all my time driving in Illinois.

I have a feeling people here either don’t know how to drive, can’t read the road signs or understand what green, yellow and red mean on street signals. I was heading to Dollar General, a 5 minute drive, and was almost t-boned by someone that blew through a stop sign. Since I was a truck driver I learned to always have my head on swivel to watch out for the unexpected. If not for this and my instincts I would be in a hospital. I seen the car coming out of the corner of my eye and was able to swerve and slam on the brakes to avoid being hit.

This isn’t the first time I’ve had close calls. There are a lot of old timers down here and as we know as we get older our skills erode. Thing is it’s the younger people that can’t drive.

If you come down to Florida watch out when driving.
