Annoying Driving Habits

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

I have often wondered if I could run for Mayor on the platform of “dangerous drivers can have their license revoked”.  Lets go back to justice by the people in order to save a few tax payer dollars.  If you see a annoying driver – write down their license plate and send it in.  Once you get enough “notices”, you’re not longer allowed to drive.  Sure there are some holes in this platform that need to be filled, but the basic idea is there.

I saw each one of these on my short commute to work this morning:

Texting while driving.  Is there a reason that you need to feel connected to the outside world at all times even as you risk the lives of other drivers?  This is the clown that forces a defensive driving stance from everyone around them.  Are they paying attention?  Which lane are they going to get in?  Do they think they’re on the road by themselves?

Grooming yourself while driving.
Its not just the women who feel the need in the morning to do their hair and makeup, its the guys too who feel as though they need to shave.  It seems like a daily occurrence on the route I take to work.  Can’t these people spend and extra few minutes at home and take care of all this?

Rubber necking at the site of an accident or someone pulled over:
Its happened before, it will happen again.  Maybe to you if you don’t pay better attention.

Hanging their dog out the window:
Sure its nice to take the 5 pound Fido to the store with you, but why are they in your lap?  This amazes me.  You’re already dealing with enough distracted driving situations with talking on the phone, or playing with your iPod, but why is the dog sitting in your lap with it head out the window?

Eating while driving:
I understand time is of the essence while trying to drop the kids off at school then get to work, but how in the world do people actually eat out of a bowl while driving?  I saw a lady driving 3 kids, presumably to school, working on a bowl of cereal.  Impressive to watch, but also very stupid.

Maybe after 2 or 3 notices, these people can be sent a distracted driving video, or a safety driving video.  Out of some respect for those of us who don’t want to be forced into defensive driving situations on every block or every intersection, take a few extra minutes at home in the morning and take care of your grooming, eating and messaging.  You’ll be amazed how much you can concentrate on the task at hand and get to your destination safely.
