Drivers Know It’s Wrong, But Many Do It Anyway
LAS VEGAS - Jan. 25, 2022 - PRLog -- If you have been driving for years or even decades, being behind the wheel probably feels as effortless as breathing. While new drivers tend to be more mindful of keeping their eyes and attention on the road and both hands on the steering wheel, seasoned drivers tend to be more relaxed and let a few good habits slide.

Unfortunately, all too often, bad habits can quickly take their place. Some of the most common bad behaviors can jeopardize your safety on the road and may even get you a ticket.

The Top Five Bad Driving Behaviors (And Why It Is Time to Kick Them to the Curb)

Using Your Cell Phone

Between yelling at your phone's lagging GPS, reading, and answering incoming texts or making a call, chances are that your phone is in your hand for a decent amount of the time you are driving.

Wearing Headphones While Driving
Headphones may provide a welcome escape from the world, but their noise-canceling qualities can make them particularly hazardous when you are driving. Wearing headphones may cause you to miss important noises such as emergency vehicle sirens, car horns or railroad-crossing alerts.

Forgetting to Signal Lane Changes
Your turn signal lets other drivers know your intentions and can help you switch lanes more quickly and easily and avoid side-swiping another driver who intends to do the same. When traffic is light, it can be easy to forget to signal. You may get pulled over for this infraction, but even if you do not, it is important to remember that good communication with other drivers is the easiest way to keep everyone safe.

If speed limits seem more like loose speed suggestions, then you may be putting yourself at a greater risk of being in a car accident. In 2019, over 8,700 fatal crashes were caused by a driver who was going above the posted speed limit. Complying with posted speed limits cuts down on your risks of being in an accident or getting a hefty fine.

Not Wearing a Seatbelt
While most drivers fasten their seatbelt without much thought, about one in 10 drivers fail to buckle up. In 2017, it is estimated that seatbelts saved nearly 15,000 lives, reinforcing the importance of this small but important measure.
