You’re Driving Insensitively and Don’t Realize It – Part 5

Best way to navigate a median.

You think you’re pretty good behind the wheel, right? Here’s part 5 of what you might be doing while on the road. See parts, 1-4 in our previous posts.

  • Doubling up in a median
    When turning left without a protected light, it’s already risky enough to pull out halfway and wait in the median for a hole in traffic. But when the guy across from you also pulls into the median to do the same thing, it blocks the first car’s vision (yours) entirely.

  • Yielding the right of way when it’s really yours
    I know you have only the best intentions when you let four people pull out in front of you. But letting people go out of turn creates a knock-on effect that will impact all the traffic behind you. No good deed goes unpunished, I guess. 

Thanks for being part of this mini-insensitivity training!
