Driving is a privilege that so many people take for granted. From the road to the track there is power that comes from being behind the wheel of any automobile. "With great power comes great responsibility," said Uncle Ben, from the Spider-man comic.
A bad driver is over aggressive and takes risks that put themselves and others in harms way. These are the drivers that will drive too close to the car in front of them not matter what the posted speed limit is.
Don't worry, they will always blame you for being in the way!
Here are some common driver distractions:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Sending text messages
- Reaching for a moving object inside the vehicle
- Looking at an object or event outside of the vehicle
- Reading a book
- Eating food
- Applying makeup.
Those that drive bad are ones without experience or over time have lost the skills that driving requires. Young drivers should be taught basic skills in recognition and eye hand coordination. That doesn't included sitting in front of a tv or monitor. Only practice can hone the reflexes and train the eye to see things before they happen.
