Drivers that "T" Us Off (Bad Driving Practices)

Posted May 29, 2022 10:18 AM

We've all seen drivers who do things that—let's be frank—really irritate us.  They're inconsiderate, can put people in danger and make the road a much less friendly place.  They really "T" us off.  These are the bad drivers who fit their description to a "T." 

  • The Tailgater.  You've seen this terrible driver who follows a few inches off the bumper of the vehicle ahead.  We all know what's going to happen if the driver ahead of the tailgater has to slam on the brakes.  And we've all been that driver followed by the tailgater, whose vehicle fills up your entire rearview mirror.  The tailgater is likely not in a great frame of mind and, thanks to his or her stupid driving practices, the "tailgatee" is getting pretty ticked off as well.  That's a formula for a big problem. Know anybody who respects or likes a tailgater? Didn't think so
  • The Texter. All sorts of people think they are perfectly capable of texting while driving.  It's not hard to spot them.  They're usually going more slowly than other drivers.  They may be weaving in and out of their lane.  They're looking down at their phone, not at the road.  At a stoplight, they're the ones who sit there for 30 seconds after the light has turned green.  Did you know a recent study found that a quarter of all accidents involve someone who is texting and driving?
  • The Trasher.  Their window goes down and the trash flies out.  They treat anything outside their vehicle as their personal garbage dump.  They finish up a cigarette and flick their butt out, leaving dozens a day for the rest of us to "admire." The Trasher has been around for a long time.  It's time for them to clean up their act.
  • The Turn-signal Troublemaker. They don't think they need to use turn signals because THEY know where THEY'RE going and no other driver needs that information.  They change lanes without any warning.  Or they made their move minutes earlier and have "forgotten" to turn off their signal.  Use those turn signals wisely and carefully.  And if you're not using your turn signals because they're not operating correctly? Get 'em fixed!

Testimonials

, 08/01/2022
Westmoreland Transmissions was the best and smartest decision I made for my vehicle repair. The transmission on my Tahoe went out on my way to work on a Friday morning. I was only able to drive about 5 mph and was able to make it to a transmission shop. That morning I was told that they were going to put me on top of the list and I would get a call by 1 pm at the latest. I waited till 3 pm to call since no one called me back but no answer. They did call me Monday morning telling me that the transmission would need to be replaced and would not be a good idea to rebuilt it. It would take 3 to 4 weeks and the cost seem to be super high. I called Westmoreland for a second opinion and Bob gave me a more reasonable cost for replacement or rebuilt. I called a tow truck to pick up my vehicle and have it moved to Westmoreland that same day (not even a block away). I went and talked to Bob after it was dropped off and decided to have it rebuilt. Bob said it would be completed by the end of the week and it was. Bob called me on Thursday to let me know that it was completed and I picked it up on Friday. Today is the 2nd day that I have driven it since I was out of town for a week. I do feel a little issue but hoping it's just getting settled in, if it continues I will contact Bob, hoping it will not be the case. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, experienced and fast service at the best cost contact Bob at Westmoreland Transmissions. He is the Best!
