Let’s be honest I am not a very confident driver; I actually try and avoid it at every opportunity. I passed my driving test but then pretty much on my first venturing out minus my instructor or my mum I got a mouthful off another driver and lots of tooting of the horn! I am quite skittish at the best of times so it did put me off a little. It did not encourage me to embrace my newfound freedom on the road! I am lucky hubbie can drive but when we move I will have to return to my reluctant position behind the wheel!
So I am going to have to try and turn a blind eye to all the habits that annoy me on the road and try my best for my boys. Otherwise it will be a hike to school every morning (I guess as a plus least we would be very fit! But with the Welsh weather it would not be very practical!).
It’s just the road rage puts me off, I was not being a bad driver at the time maybe a second more hesitant than a more experienced driver. I was not whizzing around everywhere I just wanted to make sure the road was safe before continuing, obviously the person behind me must have been in a hurry! As they were not best pleased with me…
This survey of driving habits is quite interesting I can see why some drivers would feel irate by seeing some of these things. Thankfully you would never catch me applying make up whilst I drive (actually you would be lucky to catch me wearing makeup full stop as I have the minimal effort look!) or on my mobile phone whilst I drive (I never know where it is anyway!). So at least in that respect I know I cannot annoy anyone. But for me the most annoying habit is not even listed that of road users being too hard on new drivers. Give us a chance we all had to start somewhere and for some of us it has been an EXTRA long journey to actually passing!
But typically we have a red car which is considered the least trusted colour (with 14% of the vote)!!! So I might have my work cut out persuading other drivers I deserve my place on the road again. Maybe I should get youngest to spray paint it silver instead of just cleaning it!
What habits annoy you?
