What The Honk: Is it really that hard to choose?

Trooper Steve discerns the improper from the inconsiderate

Options make life very interesting, but they shouldn’t make driving confusing.

ORLANDO, Fla. – First, I want to say I really hope you and your family are doing well after Hurricane Ian.

After taking a week away, I think we can all use some honks in our lives.

We have all seen this but I’ll be honest, this is the first time I’ve seen them stacked like this.

Let me be the first to say that there is no discount for keeping your old stickers. If anything, you’re asking to be pulled over.

Remember, the top right corner is the place for your registration.

This BMW driver likes to keep their options open I guess, but obviously this isn’t the way. Obstructing a travel lane that you’re not using will land you a ticket and an appearance here on News 6.

If at first you don’t fit, try, try again or maybe not.

Look, the driver knows this is bad and now the other cars need to suffer because of this truck’s poor attempt at parking.

I’m still hoping we can see less honks believe it or not in the days after Hurricane Ian, but I better not hold my breath.
