The Alex Rules Of Driving Will Come With Signs

I am a rule-oriented driver. I believeĀ tailgating and merging have specific and complicated regulations we should all adherence to, and I would be happy to be more controlling and long-winded in the The Alex Rules of Driving.

My book would also come with a series a of signs to better communicate with other drivers.

The merging series:


Thankful merge

Indignation non-merge

Forced gratitude merge

Merge victory sign

The tailgating series:

Stop Tailgating sign

Tailgating Seriously sign

Honk Twice For Caring

tailgate rules

The everyday series:


Thank You wave sign

No cell phone sign

driving and cursing sign

Judging Bumper stickers

I’m pretty sure driving and drivers will improve, or I will cause many, many deaths.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I want a sign that says “if you’re going to ride my a$$, at least pull my hair”. People tailgate me all the darn time! And I even ride in the slow lane on the interstate! I just don’t feel compelled to go 30 miles over the speed limit!

  2. This is so incredibly awesome! I have often thought about having handy signs in my car to flash at other drivers. I think you need to include, “Get off your phone, you are going 20mph UNDER the speed limit and driving in all 3 lanes!”

    Seriously though, I think you could really sell a book with these signs. Spiral bound with tabs for easy access while driving!

  3. Oh the wave…I hate it when people don’t wave. HATE. I always give them the benefit of the doubt and think that maybe I missed it or they waved and the windows are too tinted.
    But deep down I know that they’re just being an asshole
