- Car Safety & Safe Driving
Crazy things that drivers are doing! A.K.A. -What not to do when driving!
Don't be a jerk with any type of hot rod!
Are you a driver or a menace? You can't be both!
Polite driving is a lost art! So many people are far too inconsiderate to be out on the road these days. I have seen terrible, crazy, and stupid behavior by so many drivers that it is down right scary these days. Please read the rest of this and if you see this go on, report it to the police. if you do any of these ridiculous stunts, knock it off! Please!
First, the terrible.
So many drivers are just blowing through stop signs and red lights. This is especially dangerous if the intersection is only a two way stop or busy with traffic. It is never the right thing to do, however.
Next, do not change lanes with out signaling first! That and cutting right in front of someone is very inconsiderate!
Littering out of you window is illegal and obnoxious! Someone has to look at that, and someone else has to pick it up!
Last, do not do any of these things and then "flip someone off" for beeping their horn at you. If you behave this way, you deserve more than a honk of the horn!
Where many of us first learned about the need for speed.
A great video to watch before you turn that key!
And last, the stupid.
Driving across the lines in a parking lot makes you dangerous and makes you look like an idiot! Do not drive at an angle across a parking lot because you think that the laws do not apply there. I have interviewed a number of people who say that and they are dead wrong. Parking and driving are regulated by both signs and lines. Stay on the "driving lanes" of the parking lot and do not drive across the lines! Why should people who are trying to park have to deal with that non sense? I can't imagine why!
Racing out of a drive way without looking. We all have somewhere to go! Acting like you are the only one, is not smart or safe. Whether you are a regular driver, or you deliver pizza or drive a taxi cab, be safe not stupid. Do not run stop signs and look before you go!
Now, the crazy.
I have seen quite a number of drivers going the wrong way on a road or in a lane. Yes you may be completely nuts if you are one of the people who do this! If you have a death wish, take yourself out and not a number of innocent drivers or pedestrians. No one but the undertaker and a junk yard benefit from madness like this!
Do Not do U turns where you are not supposed to! Pull into a drive way or wait until there is NO traffic. No, this is not okay to do just because you are in a hurry! That is no one else's problem, and a real driver keeps it that way!
