LETTER: Some slack for new drivers

The "L" or "N" should get some compassion, not honking and yelling.

I have three people in my family with either a “L” or a “N” on their cars.

They are repeatedly honked at, waved at and yelled at for going the speed limit, and driving safely as taught. Yes there is probably a mistake or two. But how does honking, yelling and berating these new drivers help them?

They have to do the speed limit or they go back to step one with a ticket.

The “L” or “N” should get them some compassion and a little slack cut. Once they get their full license, the are free to speed and have absolutely no courtesy for other drivers like the Kings of the Road.
