You know how a zipper works, right? Same thing. Step one: when you’re approaching a highway from the onramp side, use your eyes and look at traffic. It’s your responsibility to yield. If you’re not familiar with the term, it means that your position is secondary to those already using the highway. A good example of yielding is when you walk into a bathroom, and somebody else is already using the urinal, you have to wait for them to finish. Driving is the same – but with less urine. OK, so back to the on-ramp. Your car has two options – speed up, or slow down. You’ll have to decide between either of these at some point BEFORE you’ve reached the end of the onramp. A good tip is to look for traffic early, then gauge your speed against theirs. If they’re going slower than you.. try to get in front of them. If they’re going by fast, then hold back and wait, pulling in behind them.

It’s the summer vacation season again, so some of you might be planning road trips which involve some night driving as a necessary component of travel. Here are some tips to keep you awake and safe(ish).
I didn’t want to have to do this… but YOU didn’t follow the rules the last time we met at a four way stop. I need you to review the following rules for both of ours’ benefit.
- First come, first serve. - It’s easy to understand. Whoever gets there first gets to go first
- In the case of a tie, the person to your right goes first. - Your other right.
- No cheating. – You have to come to a full stop directly even with the stop sign; no early stopping, no rolling through.
- Pedestrians have right of way – no exceptions.
- If there are more than 1 lanes of traffic going in your direction you MUST go with your neighbor.
Failure to follow any of these rules results in a loss of turn. If you’re not paying attention – I’m taking your turn. If you hesitate when you were obviously there first – you lose your turn.
Please pass this along.
The used car buying process can be scary and confusing. I thought I’d share some pointers and a story that took place last weekend.
About this time of year, every other year, my wife flies down to Phoenix to visit one of her friends. This year I decided I needed a break from Kansas winters and accepted the invite to go along. Her friend Dustin(not the Dustin you’re thinking of) was turning 29 this weekend and so we were both celebrating and relaxing. As it turns out, he had been thinking about getting a new car and was hoping to ask me some questions while I was visiting.
