Driving Like a Lady

Traits of a Woman Lady Driver:
  • She signals her turns and lane changes
  • She stops at a distance which allows her to see the rear wheels of the car in front of her on the road
  • She paces her speed to make allowance for cars needing to merge
  • She waves her thanks to others who allow her to merge
  • She moves to the right lane to yield to faster-moving traffic
  • She doesn't follow too closely
  • She doesn't multitask behind the wheel
  • She keeps the volume of her audio system low enough to be able to hear sirens
  • She observes approaching traffic lights and paces her speed to avoid sudden braking
  • When she clearly observes an accident she phones the police to offer witness testimony if needed

  1. Mrs. Paula,

    I was wondering if you would be so kind as to write a Lady's Code for sympathy for someone either you know, or for a friend?

    I ask because I am curious to know if I handled myself correctly and felt you were the best person in which to ask to conform.

    1. I'd be very happy to, Kimberley. I'll plan to have a post by the end of the week. Thank you for asking!

    2. Thank you, Mrs. Nancy! Look forward to it!

      Most kind regards,

  2. Hello Nancy, I have enjoyed reading your post! A Ladys code...
    Your topics appear old fashion yet these things will never go out of style and we are so in need of proper manners! Keep up the good work!!
    Blessings, Roxy

    1. Thank you, Roxy. I am so happy to hear from you and especially appreciate your sweet encouragement!

  3. Hello Nancy,

    These driving rules are such good guidelines for everyone, ladies and gentlemen both! Oh, would that it were ;-) I wish that phones would shut down upon starting a car, except for dialing 911. Driving today is simply scary, worse than ever I believe, and not just because I'm middle aged!
