20,000 Times in a lifetimeApril 27, 2011 | in The Daily Drive
I was listening to a local radio station the other day and they were having an odd trivia contest where the listeners were competing against each other with other hosts.
One of the questions they asked was a multiple choice question about what the average person will do 20,000 times in their lifetime… the answer, funny or sad, was curse at another driver.
20,000 times in your lifetime, on average, another driver will do something to you while you are driving which will cause you to either swear at them, yell at them, wave hello with one finger or worst case, engage in a physical confrontation due to an incident related to driving on the roads.
Our emotions play an important role in our ability to maintain a mature driving attitude. How we react to other drivers on the road plays an important role in our driving habits and behaviors, and their reaction to us is critical in our own safety.
Do you ever see that driver on the road…with his window down screaming and pointing at another driver? Feel safe don’t you!
No, a mature driving attitude is seriously important in preventing accidents and potential conflicts with other drivers.

When you think about it… if the average driver curses at another driver 20,000 times in their life time, that means the average driver swears at another, once a day, every day, 365 days a year, for 54 years!
