Someone stole my idea - AGAIN. I have long thought that the newspapers could do a significant public service by running a weekly "driving column" full of reminders of rules of the road. You know - the simple stuff - when to stop for a school bus (when its red lights are flashing, duh); if an emergency vehicle is behind you with lights and sirens ablarin' what do you do (pull as far to the RIGHT as possible - NOT left and right so the emergency vehicle has to navigate a narrow space in the middle); who has the right of way at a four way stop (ME, of course).Of course, I realize that no one would ever read it because every one thinks they are the perfect driver.
I never know what to do on an Interstate. In Missouri, the emergency vehicles tend to use the shoulder to get past the stopped traffic, but then someone always pulls in front of them. I don't know about Illinois.
