What’s The Difference Between A Bad Driver And A Good Driver - Toyota Parts Blog

We’ve all seen our share of bad driving.

Here is what separates a good driver from a bad driver.

A good driver …

  • Follows the Traffic Laws: We wouldn’t have as many accidents if drivers drove the posted speed limit and obeyed the traffic laws.

 

  • Is Considerate: A good driver is mindful of the other drivers around them.  They provide ample spacing between vehicles and use their turn signals.

 

  • Is Patient: You should always give yourself enough time to reach a destination.  Traffic jams are going to happen.  Weaving in and out of traffic isn’t going to get your anywhere.

 

  • Wears Their Seatbelt: Wearing your seatbelt will help to prevent fatal car accidents from happening.  Every year approximately 40,000 people die in car accidents.  Seatbelts can help prevent many of these fatalities.

 

  • Is Responsible: A good driver will take responsibility for the actions on the road.  Mistakes are going to happen.  It’s important to accept responsibility for those mistakes.  It’s also illegal to leave the scene of an accident.

 

  • Takes Care of their Car: For your safety as well as the safety of others, it’s important to keep you car in good working order.  For instance, if you own a Toyota Tundra, you would immediately want to replace broken Tundra parts.  For a Corolla, you would need to replace Corolla parts.  This ensures that your car is in good working order.

 

These are just some of the qualities that separate a good driver from a bad driver.
