i always ran stop signs just because for the first half of my life (the walking and biking half) they were pretty much useless! XD so when i started driving, i didn't realize they were there. my driving instructor was not happy.
Oh, my gosh. I'm close to doing the same thing. I'm beyond scared of driving, and I feel like just getting myself into a college for next year is going to be tough enough I'll admit it though, I feel kinda foolish seeing kids younger than me driving all over the freakin' place! LOL
I just had to comment on this, as I'm going through with getting my learners, and I turned 21 last week. Like Ontario, Alberta also has a Graduated Driver's License, so it's nice to know I'm in the same boat with someone else in their 20's.
