As long as there are cars on the road, there unfortunately are going to be car accidents. Someone is going to be careless or the weather conditions will make the roads slick or a mechanical failure could cause your vehicle to go spinning out of its lane. All we can do is make sure that we are being conscientious in our own driving and following the rules of the road. It is frustrating, though, when we face property damage or bodily injury because of another persons' poor decisions on the road.
So, I am offering this blog post as a forum for your venting. What is it that bothers you most about other drivers on the road?
Is it the drivers with erratic speeds who you are none too shocked to see with eyes glued to their cell phones once you pull alongside them?
Is it the guy who never uses his blinker? Maybe the one who never turns his off?
What about the woman who follows too closely on your rear bumper as her way of letting you know she wishes you would drive a little faster?
Maybe your main problem is with the person who zooms down to the end of a lane he knows is closing with the expectation that someone will stop to let him in.
Leave your ideas in the Comments section below!
Beyond being an annoyance and perhaps a reason that your language gets a little more colorful during your morning commute, distracted or careless drivers can be the source of serious problems on our roads. Maybe you know first-hand how vulnerable we all are to others on the road who don't drive with the same sense of caution and attention that we do.
