8 Ways Crazy Drivers Are “Awesome”
We all know these drivers. We deal with them when going to work and school on a daily basis. There seems to be more of them on the road every year around the holidays. I think they might need a little more understanding than we’d like to give. After all, they are all teaching us how boring it is to have an accident free road trip.
1.) Rolling Through Stop Signs
Those pesky red signs don’t mean anything, really. A stop sign is just a yield sign in disguise and the ones with a white line around them are optional. Right?
2.) Flying Through Cross Walks
Ever seen a car not yield for a pedestrian with a cane in a cross walk? Old people may say they can’t walk quickly, but I’ve seen a grandma jump.
3.) Multitasking With A Little Driving On The Shoulder
You’re saving time by applying make-up, shaving and changing your clothes at the same time while driving. I totally get it. And passing people on the shoulder of the highway to get to your exit? Genius display of self-centered time-management. That time you save helps you sleep in a few extra minutes before the dreaded morning commute.
4.) Distracted At Traffic Lights
Green means go. Yellow means punch it! Red means check your phone’s notifications.
5.) Slamming On The Breaks To Pay A Toll
The world will indeed explode if you miss that toll. I totally understand why you like to slam on your brakes directly in front of me while its raining typhoon style. You like it when other people’s cars rear end yours while you’re trying to jump a median to pay a toll in cash. It’s far too much work to follow highway signage in the first place or pay online if you’re too distracted by fixing your hair (see number 3.)
6.) Whipping Across Lanes of Traffic
You like to lose track of where you are and rely so heavily on that smartphone’s GPS that you do whatever it says, wherever it speaks to you. Passing lane to exit across 4 lanes of traffic in 3, 2, 1… Go!
7.) Turn Signals
I know what you are thinking, everyone is paying attention to “me.” And you’re right. A turn signal simply means the light bulbs and battery in your car are working. No need to signal before entering someone’s lane without looking. We’ll move for you.
8.) Driving in the Passing Lane at the Speed Limit
Rules are rules and logic is king. If you’re going as fast as legally possible it should be in the fast lane. Those other drivers? They are just upset you’re helping them stay legal. We speed demons thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
