As we wait for autonomous cars to solve our most painful driving hassles, human observers are disappointed as they may no longer be able to study people’s character by the way they drive.
You probably heard that people show their true colors during challenging or tough times, and that’s a real fact.
Don’t be surprised to see a warm, friendly guy at work who drives like a maniac. It’s a conflictive scenario, but driving could bring the worst in some people.
That said, here are some easy observations that reveal some human characters and other personality traits to watch out for.
It appears that your personality is described by how you drive.
Never trust a person who do not come to a full stop at a clear stop sign. There’s no exception as that’s a basic norm that we all hear while on the road.
These type of people cut corners in every single sense, which not only applies to driving rules but also to work relations.
We all know how annoying is to see drivers who are constantly tailgating as if there’s no reason why you should be in front of them.
Tailgaters are usually unimaginative people. They tend to make wrong assumptions and they end up getting in trouble for unexpected reasons.
This applies to those drivers who have no problem blocking the road by going below or at the speed limit, leaving other vehicles waiting in line for no reason.
These type of drivers are usually passive-aggressive, and delay every alternative or initiative that could develop at work.
These drivers are the sort of people who have no problem expressing profanity and other aggressive gestures at other drivers while on the road. Yes. We are referring to those drivers who curse at you while driving away.
Know that these drivers are normally frustrated and act cowardly. They are usually gossiping and backbiting at work. Watch out!
Honking the car horn unnecessarily could be annoying for some drivers who dislike loud noises while on the road. You probably spotted a few of them already as they normally appear during busy hours.
Those people tend to be overly-critical and overly-sensitive to being criticized at work. They take their sensitivity to a next level so keep that mind.
It seems that texting while driving has become a trend on the road, underestimating the fact that it could be as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol.
Any person who texts while driving is putting his life and the safety of other drivers at risk, so do not trust them in any scenario.
Pay attention to those drivers who do not hesitate about speeding, especially those who exceed the speed limits.
They are everywhere and tend to make statement while on the road. These drivers do not really care about other people, since they believe that the rules do not apply to them. At work, they behave inappropriately and always try to bring other people down with their actions.
Now that you’ve seen them all do you know any friend or colleague who fits with any of the above-mentioned criteria?
It’s in your best interest to show great driving etiquette to create a harmonious and beneficial social atmosphere.
