We all experience it at some time when driving and that’s other drivers winding us up. It can be the cause of road rage in extreme cases or it can just cause slight annoyance in others. So, what are the most common things people can do to upset other drivers?
Well, “Sunday drivers” for one thing and by that I mean people driving along at 20 mph when a clear road in front means they could quite easily drive up to the speed limit. It always seems to happen when you need to get to work on time and can’t overtake due to oncoming traffic. Don’t these people ever look in their rear view mirror at all?
Another annoying and potentially dangerous move by some drivers is overtaking then realising there is an oncoming vehicle in their path. Pulling back in again quickly means you need to slam your brakes on to avoid them. If only they’d looked properly in the first place.
Some drivers just can’t wait until there is a suitable gap in the traffic, or indeed wait for some kind driver to let them out onto a road. They just pull out in front of you with no regard for your safety. If only everyone was patient.
Tailgating is another incredibly annoying and very dangerous thing to do. If you had to pull up quickly to avoid a cyclist, pedestrian or other hazard in the road then that driver behind almost touching your bumper would be right into the back of your vehicle. Not a very wise move. So what can you do to protect yourself?
Whilst you’ve no control over how others drive you can place a Vehicle Camera on your windscreen to record any incidents, so there is no doubt in the event of an insurance claim who was at fault. Hopefully this will avoid any disputes.
