The ones that fall somewhere between aggressive and “no-you-go” and use their brains. My current favorites are those who, like I, drive up Genessee to Avalon daily. It’s so nice when people are aware and don’t make it a race to the top. They space themselves so that no one is on your butt, which only guarantees you’re going to stack up on the steepest part of the hill. Pulling over the crest and leaving room for both a left- and a right-turn driver helps too. There’s already enough to watch, including commuters, buses, bikes, and peds, so eliminating the roll factor makes my day in a simple way. Apparently it doesn’t take much to make me happy, but I’ve really noticed an improvement there recently. I do know how to start on a hill, but my clutch is thankful for such a simple pleasure. :)
Good driving is really on my mind lately as I have joined the strong many who signed a promise not to text and drive – but I’m trying also not to even talk on the phone and drive – it’s hard!! Seriously I need a 12 step for it – One day, one car ride, at a time! Like you, GenHillOne, I really appreciate common sense while driving and hope that we can all be a little more thoughtful on the road. When I read about the accidents on here it really hits so close to home…and I have a teenager who really wants to drive…yikes!
