Lately on my evening drives (in the passenger seat...buckled up, OF COURSE), I've been noticing an awful lot of people breaking some rules of driving. I know, I's been a long while since you took that drivers' exam at the DMV.

And I'm not saying that you aren't a good driver! I'm sure you keep your hands at "10 and 2" and never get road rage. But there are some rules of the road that people may have forgotten since their high school Driver's Education class.

That's why it's POP QUIZ TIME! I know it's still summer, and you're probably thinking, "Bradi, a quiz? SCHOOL IS OUT!" But the good news is that if you fail this little quiz of mine, you have plenty of time to brush up on your driving knowledge before busses full of sweet students hit the road.
