These are the driving habits that drive you crazy!
It’s easier to point fingers and blame than to
admit guilt to driving poorly.While some drivers
are definitely worse than others, we all have bad
habits we need to break when driving.
Bad driving habits lead to fatal car accidents that
could have been prevented.Take a second to see
if there are driving patterns you need to break by
reading the following slides on the top six worst
Not using your blinker when you need to turn
or change lanes could get you rear-ended or
side-swiped. It also puts the people around
you in danger.
Cutting other cars off is not only rude, but it
also puts you at risk for running into someone
who is actually driving safely.
We all do it.We want to hurry and get
through the yellow light before it turns red.
This creates a hazard for cars whose light is
turning green. Intersection collisions can be
avoided by slowing down for yellow lights.
If you’re right on the tail of the car in front
you, you’re setting yourself up for an
accident. If it stops abruptly, you have
nowhere to go but straight into it.
This is perhaps the most dangerous habit.
When you look at your phone while driving,
your eyes are not on the road. In a matter of
seconds, you could hit a pedestrian, a car, or
anything else for that matter.
Yield signs, stop signs, and all other traffic
signs are not to be ignored.They’re there for
your safety. Even if no one’s around, you still
need to follow the signs.
Use your common sense. Don’t be in such a
rush to get everywhere.Thankfully, things
like rumble strips and guard rails are there to
warn you when you do get a little too close to
the edge of the road.
Rumble stripping systems are put on roads by
concrete cutting specialists to alert drivers
with a noise that they’re driving off the road.
If you notice your highways and interstates
don’t have rumble strips or that the rumble
strips need repair, contact A-Core today by
