Classification - Types of Drivers
There are three types of drivers in this world: competent, overcautious, and reckless. After driving for many years in frustrating rush hour traffic, one might find there are three types of drivers, competent drivers who keep the flow going, over cautious drivers who cause slow and backed up traffic, and reckless drivers who weave in and out of traffic causing one near death experience after another. Trying to sort out what type of driver a person might be is an extremely challenging task. In a person's own mind, they think they are the aggressive type of driver, or the cautious type, but no one will ever admit that they are reckless kind. In most cases they’re too oblivious to these classifications and all other drivers on the road.
First, there are competent drivers who drive safely by not speeding and obey the common driving laws. The only fact that is certain about a person is they are never always aggressive or cautious while they drive. The competent drivers are always coming to a full stop, looking both ways, using turn signals, and yielding when necessary. Typically they drive no more than ten miles over the speed limit. This type of driver is the most agreeable of the bunch, putting others at no risk. These responsible drivers also follow small rules such as stopping at the crosswalk and let people walk through, it’s by the law, but most people don’t care and drive through it anyway. This type of driver also stops at red light, and also does not even try to speed up and beat the yellow light. They use the yield area properly, not just going through because they can. Those are good examples for a competent driver.
Second to the competent driver, is the overcautious driver. This type of driver would go at least 5 mile per hour under the speed limit. They would be holding onto brake a lot more often than necessary, causing others around them to become frustrated and aggressive. It is usually older people who are holding up the traffic
