Bad drivers need to kick the bad habits

Despite tougher requirements to get a driver’s licence, bad drivers are becoming more prevalent. Everyone knows what the road signs mean, they just don’t think the rules apply to them. It is all a question of attitude and exams do not change one’s attitude toward rules or other people’s well being.

Hence, the incidents of speeding, tailgating, weaving in and out of lanes, not signalling, texting, eating and reading while driving and a host of other distracting activities are making driving a miserable chore for those of us who are really trying to stay safe.

I would say smarten up and lose the attitude, people.
