Are You An Unsafe Driver? [Quiz]
How would you rate your driving skills? According to an Allstate Survey, the majority of Americans (64 percent) rate themselves as “excellent” or “very good” drivers. But, they don’t view other drivers as being so great. In fact, Americans gave an “excellent” or “very good” rating to only 29 percent of their friends and 22 percent of other drivers their age.
While many Americans believe they are good drivers, they admit to engaging in some unsafe behaviors on the road. 89 percent said they’ve driven faster than the posted speed limit and 53 percent reported having received a speeding ticket or other moving violation.
A separate study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that more than half of drivers believe that using a cell phone or texting makes no difference on their driving performance. But as passengers, 90 percent said they would feel very unsafe if their driver was using a cell phone.
State Farm also conducted a survey about drivers’ opinions on distracted driving. It found that 84 percent of drivers agree with laws prohibiting physically interacting with a cell phone while driving. However, 51 percent of drivers admitted to talking on a handheld cell phone and 36 percent admitted to texting while driving.
Behaviors such as speeding and texting are dangerous. It only takes one mistake to get into a crash.
So, are you an unsafe driver? Take the quiz below to find out.
