Slow Drivers

Good Essays
What I hate about driving, especially on the highway, is a slow driver. They believe that driving 10-20 mph under the speed limit is being precautious, but they do fully not understand that slow driving can be dangerous. They are oblivious to the whole world around them, mainly because they care about only themselves and not the other drivers around them. It’s irritating when some idiot decides to drive slowly on the left lane of the highway. The left lane is designed for passing, not holding back traffic. That’s why the right lane is made for slower drivers. Slow drivers can make highways and road unsafe. Driving under the limit on the left lane can cause drivers to start tailgating and eventually road rage due to the slow driver. People have places to get to and when drivers are behind someone driving under the limit, it causes frustration and stress. I usually drive 5-10 MPH over the limit on the left lane of a highway because I go with the flow of the traffic; that’s how usually people drive now-a-days. It is ridiculous how slow drivers rarely get tickets for impeding traffic in the passing lane. What really gets me going in a two lane road is when the slower traffic ahead somehow teams up and decides to block traffic behind them. Since the two people ahead are driving the same speed limit, it is impossible to get ahead of them. I hate when people hit the brakes even though they are driving the speed limit when they see a police officer. I understand that mindset, but driving the speed limit will not hurt anyone, the police will not mind. Slow drivers, especially on the left lane, should be courteous and get out the way when there is a car approaching behind

    Have you ever been trapped behind a slow driver when you’re already late for something really important? Nine times out of ten the driver was an elderly person, who has no business being on the road. How many times have you asked yourself, “What is this person doing?” And how many times have you passed this person, and come to find out it’s a grandma or grandpa? If there is a person who can barely see over the steering wheel, has 3-inch thick glasses, and has poor motor skills, they should not…

    live through that scenario. According to RMIIA in 2008, 2,739 drivers between the ages of 15 and 20 died in a motor vehicle accident. Since then, the number has only increased. From these statistics, adults often generalize teenagers as “reprobate” drivers. Shockingly, this statistic is similar for adults. Even though adults in America stereotype teenagers as “reprobate” drivers, adults can also be terrible, irresponsible drivers. Adults also text while driving, be intoxicated while they drive…

    example, rhythmic speech, in the form of singing or poetry reading, is varied to convey different intentions. Most commonly, quick and upbeat rhythm is associated with joy while slow and downbeat rhythm is associated with sadness. Therefore, there is a critical relationship between rhythm and meaning.

    types of drivers everywhere I go. I see at least one of these everyday and it makes my entire ride almost unbearable. I am sure that many people have come across the aggressive driver, the uncertain driver, and the slow driver, and you may also be classified under one of these at one time or another. The aggressive drivers are seriously the best drivers overall, and they have to be. If they weren't such great drivers they would get into much more accidents then they do. These drivers have the…
