  • Good Passenger Habits

    August 16th, 2012
    driving, safety, transportation  [html]
    As a passenger in I anticipate lane changes and check over my shoulder to confirm it's clear. Some drivers don't like this: why don't I trust them to drive carefully? It's not that I doubt their abilities or think they shouldn't be driving; I just recognize that driving is very dangerous and people make mistakes.

    Once time a few years ago I looked over my shoulder as we prepared to merge right and exit the highway. I saw a truck zooming up from behind and shouted. While we didn't manage to completely avoid a collision, it only sideswiped us. I used to try to remember which drivers didn't like it when I would double check and would would avoid it with them as a way of showing respect, but now I see slightly decreasing our risk of collision as also a form of respect.
