I think, I've always heard one car length for every 10 mph.

Hmm for a guy I would understand but you see a lot less speeding if the driver is a girl




There was a time I would've agreed with that statement (like when I was a teenager so MANY MANY years ago), but honestly not so now. You pay attention when driving. (to me), Boys, are more inclined to show off some, race a little, etc. These girls, while driving like bats from hell, (they are always late) are also putting on makeup, looking in the mirror, waving, and looking for friends to see them, and just plain fast and reckless. Makes me a nervous wreck... Laughing

Good morning Lori! Very Happy



Yes, I dont know how the heck they drive and put make-up thats just plain acrobatics to me. I have to admit that I almost always drive above the limit but I drive to work at 5 am and there 2-3 cars on the road. Besides that I have a rule: if there is a car in front of you for every 10 mph you are driving with, you need two cars of free room between you and that car Very Happy

That's a good rule of thumb ! I think, I've always heard one car length for every 10 mph. Another good rule, at a stop light stay back from vehicle in front of you so that you can see where their back tires touch the ground.

Lori- I agree- the girls are dangerous!! I have almost had several wrecks due to the -Waving and yelling at the boys in the next car- putting on mascara while driving- wonder they don't poke their eye out- and talking on their cell phone!



This one car had about 5 teenage girls, they were in the left lane, me in the right. They happened to spot some boys at McD's, to the right of me. They never looked-just screamed at the boys to get their attention, and whipped over my lane in front of me and turned into MCDs. --little idiots! Luckily I had been watching them and their car moving eratically, and wasn't too close!!



It pays to drive defensive!!..KAren

I know I wasn't kidding about that. I'd rather be next to a sixteen yr old boy than a cute (or thinks she is ! Wink ) sixteen year old girl. They are just plain obnoxious! While driving too ! Laughing



One of these days, and I'll bet soon, the insurance companies will have them rated as high as the boys!

That is just plain discrimination of the male sex, how come they rate male as a higher risk than female drivers?

I don't know for sure other than 'historically' boys have had more speeding tickets, accidents that pay out more etc. I personally think there will come a time in the not to distant future when they will be rated identically.

New Kids on the Block is my favourite pop-band of 90s. NKOTB had so many hits! The ones I remember are 'Tonight', 'Baby, I Believe In You' and, of course their hit 'Step By Step'. These are real songs, not garbage like today! And it is sooo good NKOTB have a tour in 2019! And I'm going to visit their concert this year. The concert setlist is here: New Kids on the Block tour Sunrise. Check it out and maybe we can even visit one of the concerts together!
