Keep them locked anywhere to prevent falling out.

You are also able to prevent people from jumping out of a moving vehicle because they first have to hit the lock to unlock it before moving for the door handle. If the door was unlocked, it would just take the move for the door handle. That's another reason you should make people wear seatbelts because they have to unbuckle before they can jump out. Well, except for this one car I rode in.

Just try to estimate where you will squeeze in, which cars you will squeeze between when merging and adjust your speed so that you will fit in there smoothly. Its when people brake, and then speed up, then brake.. its like MERGE already!!

Actually, your chances of getting hit are much higher if you're moving significantly slower than the traffic you're merging into, because, unless you find a wide open spot (which is a rarity on the LA freeways) whoever is behind you is going to have to slow down a lot or slam on the brakes to let you get in and speed up to freeway speed. And you've also got a much higher chance of some asshole not letting you into the lane, because you're moving so slow compared to them. If you're moving slow, you're going to need a bigger opening to be able to accelerate into, but if you're already moving at close to freeway speed, then you don't need as big a space, and it's easier for other cars to let you in.

Yeah...let's all remember that people do not fit in the glove compartments.

Therefore, there is no reason to, in your drunken stupor, rip the glove compartment open in an attempt to find your friend, therefore breaking the glove compartment.

you will all be so proud to know that i did very well with my driving today

and i only had daisy with me.

i did the yielding on the green in a left turn

i didnt crash my car when merging into the left lanes on the streets. i even speeded up

in all, it just feels good to drive now. i took the busy streets this morning, i had to prove myself that i can do this myself and with daisy in the car. i wasn't intimidated in the least.

i still need more practice.
