Let’s be honest, a lot more goes on in our cars than simply driving, and not all of it is good or productive. Vehicles today are used for everything from sneaking a smoke, to sending nasty texts to people we hate, and the reality is that many of us develop some pretty bad habits in our cars. In fact, we often do things in our cars that we would literally never do anywhere else. This is partly because we feel sheltered and protected in our vehicles, and partly because we’re usually on the move and assume we’ll never see the people we pass on the roads and highways again. But whatever the reasons, these are some the worst habits people can develop while driving around in their cars:
10. Being Rude To Other People
We’re willing to bet that most of you have flipped another motorist the middle finger before. But when was the last time you gave someone the finger on the street? Or told a complete stranger to “f*** off” to their face? Likely (and hopefully) never, right? But our cars give us a feeling of invincibility and make us feel as though we can be rude to whomever we want, knowing there will probably be no consequences for our actions. After all, we’re safely ensconced in our cars and moving pretty quickly when we give another driver the one-fingered salute. Really, being rude to other people on the roads only becomes a problem if we’re stopped at a traffic light or stuck in a traffic jam. As long as we’re cruising along we feel like we’re home free and can be as awful as we please to other people. It’s not like you’re ever going to see that person again, right?
