JIM LUFF'S DRIVING TIP: Last week I spoke about blind spots when changing lanes. Another blind spot exists when looking right as you pull out of a driveway or intersection. While it is a small area, the right pillar that supports the windshield can easily obscure a pedestrian, motorcycle or bicycle rider. They would be in this area for only a second, but that is all it takes to pull out into their path if they cross in front of you. LOOK TWICE to your right and proceed with caution.
Limousines might be good for weddings, but prove troublesome for popping the question.
