I know you do not tolerate this behavior that I photographed. But what gets me is this kids parents are probably driving in this manner. That is the problem. You have parents who think that once their child is 15 and has their permit they start to pay attention to how their parents are driving. Wrong! I have been swore at, given the finger, and cut off and had the brakes jammed on by many teenagers and everyone else. On this job to be successful one must be a mind reader. Most people take the same action as they are very predictable. Every once in awhile somebody throws me a curve ball. Aggressive, inattentive, ignorant, call it what ever you want driving is probably the only thing in common for any race, gender, or age. It is the bond that shows no prejudice of all Minnesotans. With that said, I hope you know that I was not seeking to expose any driving school for bad driving habits. I did find it very ironic that for the day I was having and what I was seeing all day it just fit. Had I been a little quicker i would have taken a picture of a driving instructor who was stopped by the Plymouth Police Department, but...... It was not a safe time to attempt it. So in closing all I can say I am sorry it was your school that I photographed, thank you for the kind comments and please keep reading.
