Types of Drivers We Meet on the Road

Driving can, indeed, entertain you, piss you, frustrate you and even haunt or hurt you. The road is a stage of drivers playing different characters. GoBear identified the types of motorists we meet on the road every single day and let’s see which type you belong to:

The Cursers


They may not be known to affect other drivers directly but when their windows open, you hear them trash talk and hurl out curses on every little thing they deem wrong. Traffic jam becomes a son of a A3$5*&y@hjsy#BC and red light is definitely a B*@#$f$6dg6%! Cursers abound not only during traffic jams but especially during summer when the heat of the sun is at its peak ready to trigger the cursing soul within.

The Turtles or the Snails or Both


Also known as snails, these drivers are driving so slowly you want to get out of your car and push them to speed up. They generally drive below the required speed limit and they don’t care if others behind them are dying to get ahead. Patience is a virtue. Keep your cool and wait for that chance to overtake safely.

The Honking Geese


These are the drivers who never stop to blow their horns just for others to make way. Like the cursers, they think everything will be are solved by ceaselessly pushing their horns even during a red light. What to do? Ignore. The world is already too loud to add up to its noise.

The Speed Racing Cheetahs


These drivers are the exact opposites of the snails and the turtles. Driving for them seems to be a speed game so they drive real fast and even sometimes go beyond the speed limit. These are the ones that are prone to accidents so if you ever meet one on the road, it’s better to steer clear of them.

The Rule Breakers


Call them rebels or ordinary road rangers who break the rules occasionally to save a few minutes of their time. They choose to go the wrong way even to the point of disrupting other drivers on the road.

The Stoppers

There is nothing wrong with stopping your car if you need to do something important. The problem comes when you stop in the middle of the road while all other cars are speeding. This is especially dangerous on your part. So, when you feel the need to stop to ask for direction or to fulfill a necessity, try to go the safe lane.

The Disoriented Parkers

These drivers don’t actually disturb others while driving. They literally disappoint fellow drivers by parking the wrong way. Sometimes, you can get the idea that they might have read the No Parking signs wrongly or that they refuse to read at all.

There are more types of drivers out there and yet there are only two words you might want to remember, always – Drive Right. However, even if we try to keep safe sometimes, accidents happen. Protect yourself and your car with the best car insurance package.
