3 Pet Peeves From NY Car Coach

We are quick to point fingers when somebody else makes a mistake.

But sometimes our own behavior is causing the problem – or at least contributing to it.

New York auto advice columnist Lauren Fix, popularly known as The Car Coach, identifies her three biggest “Pet Peeves” of poor driving behavior:

  1. Forgetting to use your turn signals. This is how you communicate with other drivers. Being lazy or absent-minded about using turn signals can cause rear-end collisions or dangerous passing attempts.
  2. Hogging the left lane. This is supposed to be the passing lane. Slower drivers in the left lane can be cited for obstructing traffic. Those who stay there permanently provoke other cars to drive faster or try to pass on the right.
  3. Cut out distractions. Multi-tasking can be deadly. Minimize your eating, drinking, loud music choices, and cell phone conversations. Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Binghamton injury lawyer Scott C. Gottlieb believes good driving habits save lives – possibly even your own.
