The local newspaper has a weekly column that answers questions on driving etiquette.? A very good idea, but unfortunately the worst offenders are not the ones who are likely to read such columns.
Anyway, the other day there was a Dad asking whether he could drive with his four month old daughter in the car pool lane – did she qualify as a second person ?? Duh, of course.? Though the columnist warned Dad that he could be pulled over if the cop couldn’t see the baby.? Tall bonnets are very important, we are told.
This got me thinking – shouldn’t pregnant women be allowed to use the car pool lane?? Life begins at conception, right?? So doesn’t the baby make two?
Where are all those pro-lifers?? We need them as traffic cops 😉
