Does courtesy on the road still exist?
Have you noticed a slow eradication of basic courtesies amongst many road users? Just think back to the last time you let a vehicle pass in the opposite direction on a busy road. Did you get a thank you?
Does road rage seem more prevalent than ever? Have you been on the receiving end of aggressive or angry behaviour by another driver, including rude gestures, verbal insults, deliberately driving in an unsafe or threatening manner?
Is everyone in such a hurry that impatience behind the wheel is more common place? Do rude drivers drive you mad?
Or do you still find that other drivers say “thank you” when you let wait for them or give way when you don’t have to?
Are you a considerate driver or do you find it easy to lose your cool behind the wheel?
Let us know your thoughts.
