Having bad driving habits is not only bad news for you, as it can also be dangerous for your passengers, other drivers, people, and objects. Still, sometimes you may forget about what habits you should stay away from. In an effort to remind you and help you stay safer when you're driving is that the following post will share some of the worst driving habits.

Bad Driving Habits to Avoid


By now, you probably know the dangers of speeding: you may lose control of your vehicle, you don't have the same time to react accordingly to situations, etc.; still, it's important that you keep them in mind! As you know, speed limits are determined by the condition the road is in, the amenities near the road (for instance, schools and hospitals), the amount of traffic it gets, and many other factors. By speeding, you're essentially ignoring all of those factors, and risking your life. Plus, speeding can be very bad for your vehicle.

Ignoring Traffic Signs

Speaking of paying no mind to instructions that are there for your own good and safety, you shouldn't ignore traffic signs. Not slowing down when the traffic light is yellow, not stopping on red lights or "Stop" signs, not yielding when indicated, not halting at crosswalks, and similar behavior is not only putting your safety in peril but, as mentioned above, that of the drivers, pedestrians, and animals around you. For that reason, it is important that you notice traffic signs, and actually follow what they're indicating.

Being Reckless

Of course, you don't want to be a reckless driver! It's not enough that you speed, or ignore traffic signs, but if you're also hitting the curb with your tires, merging without paying attention, succumbing to road rage, and generally raising hell on the road, you'll be increasing your chances of getting into a wreck enormously. Moreover, being reckless when you're on the road will take a toll on your fuel economy, your vehicle's condition, and your wallet, so for the sake of all of them, be more careful and a gentler driver.

Driving a Vehicle in Bad Condition

Not paying attention to issues with your vehicle, and not getting it to a mechanic for routine inspections can be very dangerous as well! This is because your vehicle can break down on you at any time (for example, the engine can overheat, one of your tires can blow up, the brakes can stop working accordingly, etc.). Needless to say, that is a less than ideal situation that can also be expensive to deal with. To avoid it, make sure that you're giving your vehicle the care and maintenance it deserves. You should make sure that your engine gets the synthetic oil changes it requires to continue performing as expected. If it's due new oil, feed it with the best one in the market: AMSOIL 100% synthetic oil in Conyers. Call D&M Marketing, LLC at (770) 312-7542 for more information.

Not Being on Full Alert

Generally, driving isn't the safest of activities to engage in since many things can go wrong and the potential outcomes can be pretty terrible. That's why you should always be fully alert when you drive! Driving while texting or talking on the phone, when you're tired, or when you're under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, can be extremely dangerous because they keep you from reacting accordingly and on a timely manner to the situations that arise. Not to mention, it is illegal, so being caught doing one of them can cost you a pretty penny and more.

Not Being a Defensive Driver

Defensive driving encompasses a few techniques that allow the driver to stay unharmed while on the road. It's basically anticipating the different situations that could take place, and taking measures to prevent them or to react properly to them; for instance, leaving a good amount of space between you and the objects around you. A couple of other techniques are checking your mirrors and blind spots regularly, and being extra cautions when the conditions aren't ideal (if it's raining, snowing, or the road is in bad shape).
