because I have to get this out of my system:
In my country learner drivers have to identify themselves with a big bleu L on the back window on their car to warn other cars that they are still learning. In a way that L means that at some times we can be dangerous, misjudge situation or just get ourselves in trouble, that doesn't mean that driver behind you should honk because you let a car pass or a pedestrian cross the road or just apply the rules. We are still learning! Honking isn't helping, it causes stress that will get us into more trouble. They should try parallel parking with an impatient *ss honking at you. The L stands for learner!
Another thing I've noticed is that I'm getting passed by other cars all the frikkin time! I'm going 70 km/h, exactly 70 according to my gps system, in a zone where it's allowed to drive 70 (but not more) and still people want to get in front of me just for the sake of driving in front of me. They just pass me and drive in front of me for the next 10-15 minutes at exactly the same speed as me. As if there is a shame in driving behind a learner driver. Let me tell you, there is a greater risk of having a learner driver being unable to stop in time and ride their car up in your trunk than the "more experienced" driver that have had to do a few emergency breaks.
Also, driving extremely close to me isn't going to make me go any faster. If learners get caught going over the speed limit we don't get a fine, our temporary license is retracted immediately. In my case that darn piece of plastic cost me over €1200, so I'm not gonna break any rules just because there's a d*ck behind me that can't wait 5 seconds until we get to a straight piece of road where they can pass me. Speed limits are there for a reason!!
Be patient with learners, no one is born with the ability to drive, we all were/are learners at some point.
