Think back to when we first got our drivers license. We were so excited to finally become an adult. Taking responsibilty for a vehicle, on four wheels, is an important decision alot of young people look forward to. They believe that this is their freedom gift. They can travel where they want, when they want, and do whatever they want inside of their vehicles. Problem is they should be doing alot of these things while their vehicle is stopped or in their homes before they get into their vehicles. We live in a fast, demanding, internet access world. So much is going on around us. For some drivers, they want to take care of themselves, while they are driving their vehicles.
We were taught two hands on the steering wheel, positions ten and two. For some they have changed their hands to twelve and six. And their are some who drive with one hand, while allowing the other hand on their laps. We need to have our mirrors clean and areas clear of all obstructions. Seat belts are required on at all times. And by all means, remaining aware of traffic. There are a number of people who have forgotten these requirements, and started their own ways of driving. Experiences: Driving while eating a Big Mac, Got up late for work, Must apply make-up, Can't stop talking to friends on my cellphone, Returning to college, to much stuff to fit in car, Texting while driving, Drinking alcohol and driving. So much stuff to do, so little time to do it all. We have used the automobile as an extended room, of our household.
There is not any one person who can be described as the most Hazardous driver. It is a combination of elements that cause drivers to not be aware of their surroundings, when they are driving a heavy piece of machinery. We have to be responsible for our vehicles and respectful of those around us. A person should handle their personal business before they get into their vehicles. If they desire to continue their conversations with others, they should pull over to the side of the road. Or continue their chats after they get to their destinations. Either way accidents will continue when we do not remember how we were taught, and learn to abide by this.
