Driving is not hard - nearly everybody you have interacted with past the age of 16 years old has the ability to drive. That should ease your mind up a bit - it is easy!

  • The biggest factor on the road is -other- drivers.
  • Do not sit on your phone in the car.
  • Hold your windshield wipers if somebody is tailgating you. The excess will fly with the wind onto their windshield.

Be safe.

if someone is tailgating you put your cruise on and every once and awhile decrease by 1mph until he passes. Has worked for me like twice.

you just gotta be observant. There are a ton of retards that have licenses, so just pay attention to your surroundings and you should be OK.

Also check your blind spots before switching lanes

This poll perfectly demonstrates the problem with driving. Everyone thinks they are a good driver and statistically half of us must be below average. We are the exact same assholes and idiots that everyone complains about on the road.

Unless you take special driving classes and work hard to be a good driver you will also be an average shitty driver. IMHO if you accept that you will be a safe driver which is much more important.

Know your limits, know that you are not good enough to avoid hitting something if unsafe driving causes an unsafe situation. Instead work to understand what you can do to avoid needing to be a good driver.

Know that everyone makes mistakes, accidents happen, your not a great driver, know what to do when you have a flat, or a dead battery (if you haven't jumped a car or changed a tire go do it, knowing how in theory and actually knowing how are very different)  and enjoy the freedom driving can give you.

Yeah I'm a good driver. No but honestly though I think the biggest issue is people dont know the limits of their car (or their own as a driver) and push these limits when its not safe to do so. I learned to drive in heavy snow by taking to a parking lot in a blizzard. Do things like that it can be a fun way to learn what do do without the risk of yourself or others

Good write-up. I would also add that if you are in the suburbs driving is a necessity. I am not sure what country you are from but I would hazard the U.S. If you are then you need to do your best to keep your license. I know this may sound stupid - but DUI's are very, very, common.

  • You are good to speed around 8 over the speed-limit. 6-8 is a tangible difference in the speed-limit and radar.
  • If your state has ez-passes for tolls then your cops will have orange ez-passes. This is because the county-issued ez-passes are orange - in which are different than the white colored consumer ez-passes. They are mounted on the mirrored left side of the rear-view mirror.
  • Do not slow down if you suddenly see a cop - they will assume you were speeding even if they didn't see it if you slam your brakes.
  • If you do get pulled over then take it to court (you do not need a lawyer.) The majority of cops will not show up to the court date and if they do just say you knew you were speeding but you feel the fine is unjust. They will typically half the price and worst case scenario nothing changes. Best case scenario you keep the $200 you were supposed to be fined, a couple hours is worth $200 - $1,000.
  • Cop vehicles will never have broken headlights - they have standards they have to adhere.
  • Put your keys on your dash above your steering wheel if you get pulled over - it is a cop thing and could help you get out of a ticket.
  • Do not be peer-pressured into drinking and driving. It is fairly typical for individuals to go out to a sports bar, drink 5 beers, and drive home. Don't do this. It is pathetic and shows you have no resistance for substances - and drinking and driving will only harm yourself and others.
  • Do not honk at people in bad neighborhoods.

In regards to parking:

  • Back into every spot you park in - this will reduce your chances of getting t-boned reversing out of a parking spot.
  • Park far away from others, walking an extra 20 feet is worth avoiding door-dings.
