Since 3 weeks my car is standing behind the house (got my driving license suspended for one month … :oops: maybe I’ll write about how it happened later on) which means on mondays and fridays, my commuting days, I am driving to/from work with a colleague. I am sitting on the right side, of course. Therefore I had more time to oberve what happens in traffic, small details which you miss when you are driving yourself. Reading another similar post about Common sense on the phone, I said I would post couple of personal common sense rules when driving. So, in random order:
- If you change the lane, signal!
- Signal BEFORE you change the lane.
- On the highway, drive on the right as much as possible. Left lane is for passing, not for driving with 90km/h and admiring the view
- Don’t slalom on the highway. If you see a slow truck on the right lane in front of you, don’t go on the right lane only to come back 2 seconds later on the left lane.
- Don’t break 20 times a minute! Keep your distance and break only if necessary, otherwise just take your foot off the accelerator.
- At a stoplight, don’t be an idiot and flash/honk the guy in front of you the nanosecond it’s green.
- Don’t sit on the left lane if you want to make a right, and the other way around.
That’s all I can think of right now.
