And this is when you report him and say "you failed, at keeping a job"
<sarcasm>No, EVERYONE knows that op should've kept going then slammed on her horn repeatedly, duh. </sarcasm> I moved to North Carolina from PA in January, and I can't even begin to tell you how many cars I've seen go even when the light is red (I've seen anywhere from four to six cars go at once after the light has turned red)- so, OP you're going to need to get used to shit like that. Also, you're going to want to prepare yourself for people cutting out in front of you, cars driving without their headlights on (in the dark and in stormy weather). From what I've seen, there's too many people who text/fuck around with their phones while they're driving, so just keep being a cautious driver and good luck, hopefully you'll pass next time.
OP, I believe, the whole point of getting driver's license is to understand that what is meant to be a means of transportation can also be a weapon. Choosing the safest route/aka avoiding trouble and retards is always the best thing to do, so I couldn't agree more with everyone in this branch of responses. Report the ass. Good luck and hope you pass next time with an instructor that is interested in your and others' safety rather than his wallet...
#100 I've seen someone do that just to get the insurance money to replace the car purely bc no matter hat it's the one running the red light's fault. Stupidity getting rewarded. OP you did the right thing and I Hope you have taken everyone's advice and reported him and are given another chance to take your test soon. We need more careful, smart drivers out there!
You have never worked in retail then. We are the worst people, we just can't show it because we need our jobs. As much as we want to beat the shit out of people for every "if it doesn't scan then it's free!" joke or bitching at us for the price of something you saw on a sign that doesn't exist, we sit and smile, thinking "it's not worth it... yet..."
I would think you should be able to fight that... They must have a Drivers Ed court or something :P But seriously, that instructor was way wrong and should not have been able to fail you for that. Actually, you should have gotten bonus points for being a safe driver even when others around you pose a danger.
You may have failed, but at least you're still alive OP. Your instructor must be an idiot.
Sign of the times... My dad had the exact opposite happen to him. Avoided being hit by a car the instructor didn't see, so he was passed on the spot.
