The Bad Driver’s Handbook is the book the DMV doesn’t want you to read! Zack and Larry Arnstein (The Dog Ate My Resumé) debunk the myths of the “good” and “bad” driver by describing in detail the liberating truths about driving that have long been suppressed. Comical commentary and tongue-in-cheek observations are provided on such topics as:

  • Bribes, Threats and Other Secrets to Getting Your License
  • Intimidating Pedestrians
  • Making Your Car Louder
  • Turn Signals: Why Give Up the Element of Surprise?
  • Tailgating: How Close Is Not Close Enough?
  • Sleeping at the Wheel (Do's & Don'ts)
  • Motorcycles: Faster, Cooler, Safer!
  • Driving When You Can No Longer See
You’ll also find exhaustive lists of “Did You Knows?” (“Did you know if you get boxed in by other, smaller cars in a parking space, you have a legal right to smash into them, and bash your way free?”); Definitions (Pedestrian: “Annoying obstacle infringing upon your right to drive at the speed you feel most comfortable”); and Safety Tips (“When challenging another driver to a race at a traffic light, be sure to wait until the light has almost turned green before mashing the accelerator to the floor”). Hidden meanings behind ordinary traffic signs are revealed, including the coyly worded No U-turn sign, which actually means look both ways for police officers, and if you don’t see any, go ahead and make the U-turn!
