Wow, that really sucks....It's a lot less strict here in texas.

We learn on automatic cars ( dry.gif ) though so i never really heard of the looking in the mirror before shifting before

For example while sitting the practical test (lasts about 50min) you will be given three maneuvers to perform. One of which will be reverse parking between two parked cars. If one of your tyres so much as touches the kerb its an instant fail.


examiners discretion, i never had to do parallel park ph34r.gif

Lucky bastard! tongue.gif . They made me do 4 maneuvers on my final exam!!, parallel park, 3 point turn, reverse around a corner and emergency stop!. I think the examiner didn't like me for some reason.

shit,here in texas half the population doesnt have a license, much less insurance!!!

i ran over a black lab while i was taking my driving test. i was drving ,the instructor was in the front seat and 2 girls were in the back (you take turns driving here) . it just jumped out in front of the car and went under it. the teacher nor I hit the brakes wejust kinda started for a split second in disbelief. the girls in back were like, what was that?!! was that a dog??!? teacher said it was just some bumpy asphalt and we kept on going. we never said anoither word the whole way back to the school.

most responsible people in the US would stop and report it... no jail time though. Cats are a different matter, people don't even bother stopping for cats or any other animals...

in NH it's legal to shoot a dog if it comes on your property, no other stipulations necessary... this doesn't happen all to often but it sure helps encourage dog owners to keep their animals where they belong.

animal control never shows up.... and if you bring it to a vet, guess who has to pay the bill.

The vet, unless you're feeling generous.

my fiancee works in a vet office and she tells me stories of hit and run drop offs all the time, according to her they usually work gratis on those animals.

We have an emergency vet clinic here supported by the Humane Society, and other donations. The vets donate their time, work as needed for a certain number of hours each week.
And I know if it had been my dog run over, I sure would have appreciated someone stopping and checking on the animal. At least seeing if it was suffering.
Assholes are the ones who do not stop (hamwbone and the driving instructor are who I mean). Makes me think a lot less of hamwbone as a person.
