The Issue With Traffic (How to Handle It When You’re Learning to Drive)

The reason for traffic in any place is usually because there is a hold up somewhere because of something that you either a). will never know why there was such a backup or b). because of a really bad accident and you’ll see the ambulance and about ten police cars holding everyone up or c). you’re stuck behind a tractor.

When someone is learning to drive they’re told to go no faster than the posted speed limit. Other drivers do not like this. But, you HAVE TO stay under or at the speed limit when you are on your learner’s permit. The only good thing about being stuck in traffic and being on your learners is that everyone is stopped so no one can tailgate you.

When stuck in traffic and learning to drive, listen to your parents. Most of the time they’ll be telling you what to do. Listen, they’ve been driving for a while and you need to start learning the realms of the driving world. 12088207_1065798630099075_4948150309587581851_n

Make sure that you stop and are always paying attention. Often times traffic causes for angry and anxious people so many of them are pulling either in or out. You don’t want to be in an accident because you weren’t paying attention to either your blind spots or what is in front of you. article-2555748-1B5A75D300000578-226_634x291

Most drivers only care about themselves and where they are going, there are very few times in life where the same person let’s multiple people out at once. Don’t be that person that forces someone to let you go, wait your turn, I know it’s frustrating but it’ll happen sooner rather than later.tumblr_m0ty4mYwzH1qgnc1xo1_500

Don’t focus on anyone on the road other than yourself. No one else really matters in fact you should not drive based off of other people, do what you’re comfortable with. Of course when I mean this I don’t mean just blow past every stop sign, you have to be aware of other drivers but if you’re comfortable with going 50 in a 50 don’t go over it. If you think you should wait in order to feel safer when you’re looking to pull out, wait. Try to get comfortable with the road.original

If you’re a Type 1 Diabetic and driving make sure that YOU ARE SAFE. If your blood sugar goes low you can cause danger to yourself and the cars around you as well. If you feel as though you are going low, pull over, test and take correction. Make sure you always have some sort of correction in the car as well. And also make sure that you are wearing a Medical Alert bracelet that way if anything does happen the people on the scene will know what to respond to and how to treat you as well.
