Driving Instructors

By John Ross Harvey

It shouldn’t be just me
But motorists in my part of this world
Are normally very bad
Personally I blame the instructors
Many of which drive as poorly as
The rest of the motorists that annoy me.
Headlights are your #1 safety tool
They provide visibility for you and
More importantly visibility “of you”
Far too many “instructors” do not insist on using these
In conditions where they are definitely required
They also seem to be teaching this turning in wrong lane disease
Left turns go to left lanes, not centre, not right, LEFT!
Right turns go to right lanes, not centre, and not left, RIGHT!
Most of these learner vehicles are grey
Mostly the skies are grey
Always the roads are grey
Grey cars, grey roads, grey skies, no lights, NO SEE!
No wonder everyone I encounter on my commutes
Cannot drive properly
The Instructors cannot drive properly either!
Light travels faster than a car
It’s not rocket science it’s more visible than your car
So why prove stupidity by not using them?
I will close and say one thing of instructors I’ve seen
Only “Young Drivers” instructors use headlights properly
No other company I’ve seen does.
We don’t live in Australia where everything is backwards to us.
Go forward, be Canadian, use a light switch!

You may have heard the recent Ontario Auditor General commenting that (1) kids taking drivers training from the Ministry of Transport seem to have more accidents than those who don't, and (2) the teachers at these facilities tend to have more demerit points than the average driver
