With all the talk of self-driving vehicles and sensor technology to help drivers become better motorists on the road and increase safety for everyone commuting, it begs the question whether or not that kind of technology will be beneficial for even the worst drivers behind the wheel. Because ultimately, even with the latest driving systems integrated into a vehicle, can a bad driver become a better one (therefore a safer one)?
What are signs that you’re actually a bad driver?
Driving takes a lot of focus, which for many, tends to be scattered as we make our way to our destination. There’s a lot to distract drivers—text messaging, kids in the backseat, even getting preoccupied with our own thought. Sure there’s new car technology which can actually alert us of impending danger, but with a lack of focus to begin with, how well will that technology come into play?
Other common bad driving habits include not using turn signals, ignoring traffic signs, and leaving no space between you and the driver in front of you—assuming self-driving vehicles won’t be around for a while, all of these habits can’t be improved on by all these new car safety systems we currently have.
