Watch Out for These 3 Types of Drivers

On Behalf of | Aug 19, 2021 | Motorcycle Accidents |

You’ve heard of the four riders of the apocalypse? While the following three categories of automobile drivers aren’t necessarily that evil, they could mean the end of the world for motorcycle riders who encounter their antics on the road. The next time you go out for a ride, keep your eyes peeled for the following poor drivers.

The nervous novice driver

New drivers aren’t innately bad, but the ones who lack experience yet are overly confident on the road can be dangerous. Some might be driving vehicles beyond their ability to handle at this early stage, such as a high-performance sports car. Others might make rookie driving mistakes like confusing the gas with the clutch in a manual transmission automobile. Even if the risks they pose are due to ignorance rather than intentional poor behavior, that doesn’t make them any less dangerous to everyone else on the road. All it takes is for a newbie to swerve into your lane to cost you your bike and potentially much more. So, if you see someone who appears barely in control of their vehicle riding near you, stay as far away from them as possible.

A daredevil behind the wheel

This is someone you really want to avoid. While they might have a lot of experience and even be highly skilled, their desire to show off to others makes them careless. Maybe they decide to zig-zag constantly around other vehicles at a high rate of speed. Or they like to challenge friends or random other drivers to race them down the freeway. Whatever showy moves they decide to make, their behavior means they’re a hair’s breadth away from hitting someone or spinning out of control at any moment. If you wind up the rider they strike directly, or crash in front of, the likely result will be your serious injury or death. See a driver childishly showing off? Then that’s your cue to steer as far away from them as possible.

The chemically impaired driver

The danger with this one is that their impairment due to drug or alcohol use might not be readily apparent, which puts the onus on you to watch for telltale signs like:

  • Frequent and unwarranted changes in speed
  • Weaving across their lane lines
  • Ignoring traffic signals and signs
  • Making similar moves as the novice and daredevil drivers—poorly

Not only should you stay far away from an impaired driver, ideally you should report them to the authorities. Pull over at the next rest stop and contact the California Highway Patrol to alert them to what appears to be a drunk or drugged driver. Not only might you save their life, but you could save the lives of others from their negligent behavior.
