How many drivers still do everthing that was covered or tested when getting a license

When we talk about drivers being responsible, and/or driving with due care and attention....a few things come to mind. Hopefully this will show how we, as drivers, get lazy about the task we do or about to do, and that is driving.

1) How many pre-trip their vehicles before leaving the house? Things like making sure all the lights are working, especially the brake and signal lights. How many actually walk around your vehicle and check the tires, check for oil leaks...etc? Driving a mechanically malfunctioning vehicle can be as dangerous to the driver AND everyone else on the road! Could we guess at a percentage?

2) How many, when parked on a hill, turn the wheels into the curb as taught and tested when getting a license? As I drive the city streets I will see 10% (estimate) of the vehicles parked on a hill with their wheels turned to the curb!

3) How many drivers still do shoulder checks when turning or changing lanes? Or do we just use our mirrors or assume that it is honest!!!!

4) How many of us drive when we are tired or emotionally "unstable"? Ever driven when mad? Sure affects the driving...doesn't it?

My point is this. There are MANY things that we are taught (yes, even way back in the "old" days) that we get lazy about with our driving, or preparing to drive. It is not so much that we HAVEN'T been trained .... it's a case of being lazy about USING or DOING the concepts we've been trained at!

If we all drive the way I SHOULD drive....the roads would be much safer!!
