The L Sign On Cars


For long I thought that the “L” sign you saw on some erratically driven cars (like in the pic) actually stood for “learners”. A person who is learning  to drive – with a learning driving license has to sport that sign on his/her vehicle – so that other drivers are cautioned.

Learner-sign

It was just a couple of days ago when a friend corrected me. The L doesn’t stand for “Learners”. It stands for “Lady”. What it signifies is that a lady is driving the car – and you better keep a safe distance – else she crashes into you.

Hmph. I think i’m going to take affront to that! :D
Though for the most part i agree…especially if some lady is driving in front of me and driving like a sissy girl! It’s like they think if they change the gear to beyond the second it’ll jump up and bite them! :P

Looks like he too used to be a regular on your blog….
“Besharmiya” = “Bhookha Naan”
Parallels are striking :-)
