Bad habits driver
We drag habits from the distant past into modern vehicles.
There may be other factors beyond that which influence road risk in one gender versus the other, but they are not relevant to the basic task of driving and we don't find any fundamental difference in driving ability between the sexes once they have been taught the correct skills.
Shifting from drive to reverse before stopping Shifting between reverse and drive and vice versa in a car fitted with an automatic gearbox is really bad for the transmission.
Multiple vehicles overtaking. When the light turns green, you wait for oncoming cars before you turn left.
If we avoid the bad use of the brakes we can extend the duration of the pads, discs and brake fluid. There are numerous similar examples. Similarly, driving over a speed bump without slowing down can cause damage to the front and rear of the car, the underside, and potentially the exhaust system.
Good driving habits
We tend to blame the faults on the car manufacturers but we have to be aware that many breakdowns can be avoided if we make good use of our vehicle. Failure to buckle up and obey road traffic rules then add up during the trip, making the reality of a crash that much greater. Abide by the speed limit. Failure to observe the environment and traffic pattern and react predictively. Far too few drivers in the country take driving seriously; we are careless, negligent and do not embrace a culture of voluntary compliance. With distracted driving becoming an increasingly important issue, expect more states to crack down on any use of a mobile phone. Failure to ensure there is clear space before maneuvering. There may be other factors beyond that which influence road risk in one gender versus the other, but they are not relevant to the basic task of driving and we don't find any fundamental difference in driving ability between the sexes once they have been taught the correct skills. In the meantime, someone gets to the stop sign opposite you, and will be going straight through. Treat merging as if it was a delicate balancing act that needs finesse to get it right. Couple a good look in your wing mirror with a quick glance over your shoulder to ensure that the coast is completely clear before you switch lanes. Stay where you are until you can see the signal before you move. Shifting gear before coming to a stop will cause wear and tear on the transmission band, rather than the brake discs and pads, which are serviceable items.
