It’s time to play nice with others…while driving

It seems like good manners go out the window (literally) when we start to drive. Simple common courtesies can make driving easier and safer. The author of this blog suggested little things like allowing the driver next to you to change lanes. Tailgating is another driving habit that should be stopped. Keeping 2 seconds between you and the car in front could save you from a serious accident. The author also reminded us to watch and give bike riders room.. Just remember, well mannered drivers are very much appreciated so do not forget the smile and hand wave when someone has been considerate to you.

Key Takeaways:

  • I’m talking more about making your drive within your community more pleasant for you and everyone else you meet.
  • Since it’s just a red light, why not let that other driver change lanes and come over? It’s not really going to slow you down from reaching your destination in a timely manner.
  • To those who purposely tailgate, why not stay back to avoid putting pressure on the driver ahead of you? You’ll still get to your destination
