I’ve spent a lot of time driving the past couple of weeks, as summer comes to a close and the highways are filling up with people off to one last weekend at the beach or vacation in the wilderness. It has made me think (as I sat in traffic) there should be an etiquette book for driving… but then again, who would read it?
Everyone has there own pet peeves when it comes to driving:
“stop driving like a maniac”
“stop driving like a grandma!”
“use your turn signal!”
Whatever, you get the point, 🙂 but that’s not really what I’m talking about.
When is the last time you thought about manners (the same ones you use when face-to-face with someone) when you were behind the wheel?
For instance, did you ever think, “I won’t slow down to gawk at the accident on the side of the road because that’s nosey and rude”? Or what about, “yes, I’ve been sitting in traffic for a while, but I so has everyone else, so I’m not going to block this car out of my lane by tailing the car in front of me”?
Just curious, because I do and I think driving would be a much better (and safer AND quicker) experience if more people did!
Have a great rest of your weekend and, if you are going anywhere, I hope you don’t hit any traffic!
