On another occasion while my son was waiting to turn left at an intersection, an oncoming motorist failed to use his signal to turn right, which caused to wait longer than necessary before turning. I have now noticed Travis using his signal to turn into the driveway of his home! The second inadequate skill involves drivers barely coming to a complete stop while at stop signs, or stopping for school buses.

University Ave is a large street, so I tried to make a direct U-turn. I thought it just took one step instead of three. I didn’t want to turn, then turn back, and finally go forward.
