The only thing I dislike about driving is other drivers.
I know it's a wildly arrogant and condescending thing to say. Of course I think I'm the only good driver on the road and that everyone else is an idiot because my commuting needs come before everyone else, right?
But for the most part I obey the rules of the road. I use my turn signals, I let drivers pass me, I stop for pedestrians and stop signs and don't speed through residential areas like some kind of madman.
I'm not perfect. I swerve erratically to dodge pot holes and I've definitely held up traffic trying to make a right turn when I've been stuck in the left on more than one occasion. But I swear I'm trying to get better. There are some people, however, who are irredeemably bad drivers.
The study employed the EverRide monitoring app, which defined "good" or "bad" driving across five categories: phone use, speeding, acceleration, braking, and turning. After 11 months of data gathering and monitoring the behavior of 150,000 drivers, Pittsburgh came out on the bottom.
A drivers’ safety ultimately rests in their hands and those of their fellow motorists. And this month, during #DistractedDrivingAwarenessMonth, @chainlaw would like to call on everyone to drive distraction-free, and speak up if you’re in a vehicle with a distracted driver.
