She would command some respect from the other drivers. It says so in the Redneck Manual regarding driving etiquette:

Redneck Book of Manners

1. Never take a beer to a job interview.
2. Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.
3. It's considered poor taste to take a cooler to church.
4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.
5. Even if you're certain that you are included in the will, it is still
considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.

***DINING OUT***

1. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers
covering the label.
2. Avoid throwing bones and food scraps on the floor as the restaurant may
not have dogs.

***ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME***

1. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a
taxidermist.
2. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners
are.

***PERSONAL HYGIENE***

1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done
in private using one's OWN truck keys.
2. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However,
if you live alone, deodorant is just a waste of money.
3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to
detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods.

***DATING (Outside the Family)***

1. Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date.
2. Be aggressive. Let her know you're interested: "I've been wanting to go
out with you since I read that stuff on the bathroom wall two years ago."
3. Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say
10:00 PM; others might say "Monday." If the latter is the answer, it is the
man's responsibility to get her to school on time.
4. Always have a positive comment about your date's appearance, such as, "Ya
sure don't sweat much for a fat gal."

***WEDDINGS***

1. Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift.
2. Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.
3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit or a clean bowling
shirt can create too sporty an appearance.
4. Though uncomfortable, say "yes" to socks and shoes for this special
occasion.
5. It is not appropriate (nor a compliment) to tell the groom how good his
wife is in the sack.

***DRIVING ETIQUETTE***

1. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles; even if the gun is loaded
and the deer is in sight.
2. When approaching a four-way stop the vehicle with the largest tires always
has the right of way.

3. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape.
4. When sending your wife down the road with a gas can it is impolite to ask
her to bring back beer.
5. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving.
6. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.

Just picked up an '09 Tahoe LTZ this week...what a fun truck! Wish I would have bought one of these a long time ago. Can't wait to see how it tows the boat...need to do something manly with it other than driving the kids to their weekly activities. :-)
