Editor: Regarding Mark Robertson’s letter, “Driver’s handbook is good reading.” It’s about time that someone took the time to write on the subject. I totally agree with Mr. Robertson, as most or all drivers have forgotten those four rules.
What puzzles me is that I remember those rules and apply them because they are common sense totally. However, I would think that vehicle behind me, who is in my trunk, would follow my example or catch on but no, as the traffic proceeds slowly they either block a crosswalk or an intersection and are still in my trunk.
The rule of thumb is that when you are at a stop, if you can’t see the wheels of the car ahead of you — you are too close. It doesn’t take a genius to remember that simple rule.
Thank you Mr. Robertson for using your common sense.
