Everybody knows at least one bad driver. This could be someone you have sat beside as they drive, someone at an intersection or, someone speeding by you on the highway. Everybody has to deal with bad drivers. But what do they do that really makes them bad drivers?
Here are 10 habits they may display. You might even have one of these habits and not even know it.
10) Straddling the Line
Other drivers can’t figure out what you’re trying to do, and are hesitant to pass you because they aren’t sure if you’ll be moving left or right. Also, if you’re paying so little attention that you’re driving along straddling lane lines, other drivers will have less confidence that you’ll notice and avoid hitting them.
9) Not Handling Intersections Correctly
You pull up to a four-way stop at almost the same time as another car that’s perpendicular to you. They got there a couple seconds before you, but they wave you through in order to be nice. If it’s just you and the other car, there isn’t a problem. But if there’s a lot of other traffic, not following the rules of the road can confuse and frustrate other drivers — and possibly cause an accident.
