Angry father issued 'warning' in Cumming


January 13, 2014
CUMMING, Ga. — When a woman failed her driver's test, her father became upset and drove off enraged, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

At about noon Jan. 4, officers were dispatched to the Department of Driver Services, 400 Aquatic Circle, because a man was honking his horn and behaving inappropriately.

A DDS employee told officers the man's daughter had failed her driving test after she came to a sudden stop on the road and was almost rear-ended by another car.

After she failed, the father grew angry and loud, the report stated.

Then, they got into their car and drove away. The father was behind a car being driven by a woman taking her driver's test and a DDS tester.

The DDS tester said a man in a white car got behind them, followed very closely and started honking his horn. He continued to follow them while on the road test and almost "side-swiped them."

The man finally passed them, and the DDS tester indentified the man as the angry father.

As he passed, he gave them "the finger" and drove away.

Officers later located the father, and he admitted to giving them "the finger" and being upset at DDS for failing his daughter.

Officers issued him a criminal trespass warning.

    I'm certainly not condoning this angry father's actions by any means, but the attitude of the testers does have something to be desired.

    Perhaps a solution might be that the local government employees should take this incident and other complaints (we made a couple) as a red flag, and have an annual class on dealing with the general public as a public SERVANT. Thank you.

    Been there, sadly

    I remember my son taking the exam. He had a lifted Jeep with a sticker that said "Lift it, Fat Chicks Can't Climb". When the tester came out she was about 5 foot 3 and 300 pounds. Surprisingly, he passed.

    Unfortunately a lot of people grow older but never mature. Grow up. Do not take failures of another personally.
