A Request to Rude Drivers

Please find a seat and pay attention. We need to talk.

Apparently we, as a population, have forgotten some basic rules of the road and need to be reminded of the proper way to turn out into traffic.

The past few days, as I have driven about my daily duties, there seems to be a plethora of other drivers so eager to enter the flow of traffic (which is moving along nicely without them) that they pull out when there is barely room for them. This (for those of you who haven’t noticed) causes the drivers behind you to brake. It’s irritating for them and rude on your part.

There are three subcategories of this selfish slice of automobile abusers. The first is the driver who darts out into traffic and then creeps along as if he has all the time in the world. Why did he pull out so fast if he wasn’t in a hurry?

The second is the guy (or girl) who pulls out just to turn at the next road on the right, which is generally only a few feet away. Just be patient, please. If you’re going only so far, wait until you won’t be in anyone’s way to do it!

The last subsection of those who “butt” into traffic is the person who pulls out in front of someone to perform either of the above actions. The difference is that this person pulls out in front of the last car in a string of traffic. This last car has to brake, which is especially irritating as there is no one behind him and the intruder could have waited a few more seconds to unobtrusively travel to the next turn or drive as slowly as he liked.

If you recognize yourself in any of these examples, please, do us all a favor and be a little more considerate. None of us would be on the road if we didn’t have something to accomplish. What I have to do is likely just as important as what you have to do. Keep in mind the basics you learned in kindergarten and wait your turn. We’ll all be much happier drivers!
