Don’t stop the flow!

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Helping You Drive Safely

Recently, DefensiveDriving.com gave away an XBox 360 Kinect to a lucky man who told us his craziest driving story.  Thanks to all who submitted their stories. 

I drive 2 hours each day in Houston rush hour traffic.  I see so many crazy things.  Today I am going to share with you things that make me crazy about other drivers (I know, as it says in our award-winning online driver safety course, Wheels In Motion, to other drivers, I AM THE OTHER GUY!).  However,  it drives me crazy when…

People don’t seem to understand how to keep the flow of traffic moving.  For example

  • When someone moves from the right (slower) lane to the left (faster) lane and seem to go even slower.  If cars are coming faster in the left lane, DON’T break the flow of traffic!
  • Exiting without preparing to get into the right lane.  Surely you’ve driven the road before or maybe even saw a sign indicating YOUR EXIT IS COMING! 
  • Alternating between lanes so that you can get ahead in traffic.  By the way, WE ARE ALL working to keep moving.  Please stop moving around for no reason, it just slows everyone!
  • Stopping at the last second and almost causing a pile up.  If you are in traffic, going 40 for 2 seconds and then slamming on your brakes every tenth of a mile is ridiculous!
  • Entering the freeway going 30.  It’s called an acceleration lane for a reason.  Keep the flow of traffic moving by driving at the same speed as everyone else!
  • Leaving debris on the roadway.  If you didn’t know this before, stuff that is NOT strapped down WILL fly out or off of your vehicle! 

WEASELs weaseling your way to get ahead in rush hour traffic, please stop the madness!Ok, I do feel better now that I’ve vented.
