I recieved my Driver’s Permit in December, and I have been driving since then, but only with my parents, and only 'till 7PM. I can get a full license in November, but now I’m very worried that I’ll have an accident. Just today, I did my first freeway driving on I-75, and I did OK, even though the speed limit was 70. But on the way back home, I was driving on Summerlin (4-lane divided, 55 MPH speed limit) when dad said, "stop, STOP, STOP! I immediately slowed down to see a Geo Metro appearently trying to get into the left turn lane ahead of me, but it was stopped, and only about halfway across - so it was in both lanes. The thing is, while I was looking ahead of me, and I saw the car, I unconsiously dismissed it. It was the weirdest feeling - I thought I was paying attention, but there was that car that came out of nowhere! The thing is, when I get my license, I’m supposed to drive to school every morning as soon as I get my license. If I can’t see a car 300 feet in front of me at 3 in the afternoon, how will I see anything at 7:30 in the morning? So…
Should I drive to school when I get my license?
