Making a left turn (USA)
Okay, so my friend took me out on the road today. And I had road rage having driven on small roads three times before this. He finally let me drive on the big roads and he got really, really, upset when I made left turns.
For instance, when making a left turn, I would not slow down (only a little), so I end up almost hitting the pathway when turning in. When stopping as well, I tend not to focus on the car in front of me, and I end up having to break of all a sudden. I also have a tendency to hit the lines on the right side of my lane or even the pathway - I think this stems from the problem that as the driver you want to be in the middle of the road, so you tend to swerve to the right.
Are there any tips to fix these problems before my test on Saturday? My friend thinks that it'll be a miracle if I pass... Sorry if I don't make too much sense but I'm really tired...
