Nobody Knows How To Drive!
Drivers today are bombarded with a variety of distractions. There has been a great deal of attention given to texting while driving, video and audio distractions, and isolation of the driver from road conditions and sounds. As you learn the rules of the road, you have to develop your own approach to driver safety. How do drivers act around your area. You also need to consider how your safe driving principles change with the seasons, the area of town you are driving in, and time of day.
This discussion will allow you to discuss your tactics for dealing with aggressive and distracted drivers. As you form your post and respond to your classmates, remember the driving culture can vary across the country. How you would handle an aggressive driver may be different then your classmates. Consider the rules you have learned in class, and how common courtesy plays into operating a motor vehicle. Do you believe the same social norms apply in all situations? Do you think there are situations where it is appropriate to honk your horn or display threatening gestures?
With these thoughts in mind, identify two strategies you would consider for dealing with aggressive or reckless drivers. Use your experience as a vehicle operator, or as a passenger, to form your thoughts and describe to your peers how you would react. Once you have posted your initial response, respond to at least two of your classmates. Consider their geographic setting and how the driving culture in their situation differs from yours.
