Tailgating not only distracts the driver in front of you, but it can also blind them if your headlights are on. They feel pressure to drive faster and could potentially get angry leading to a road rage incident. “It’s not just a rude habit, it’s a dangerous habit,” says Leslie Kasperowicz, Managing Editor at AutoInsurance.org. “Rear-end collisions are the most common type of collision, making up nearly 30 percent of all accidents. Those accidents cause injuries and even fatalities – thousands of fatalities each year.”
Driving too slowly
Almost everyone has experienced the frustration of getting stuck behind a slow driver. Not only is it annoying, but it can also be unsafe to drive too much below the speed limit – especially on the highway – because someone might have to merge in behind you and if they’re moving at a much faster speed it could cause a collision.
Driving too fast
On the other hand, driving too fast is also a dangerous and rude habit. It puts yourself and other drivers around you at risk. Always keep your eyes on the road and obey the speed limit. Driving too fast can cause an accident and will get you a speeding ticket.
