Don’t be annoying

There are some bad driving habits which annoy everyone on the road, so don’t fall into these traps. One particularly irritating habit is nudging pedestrians. Gaining a couple of seconds by edging on to the pedestrian crossing might not seem like a bad driving habit, but from a pedestrian’s perspective it’s not fun dodging cars as you cross a busy road, and it can feel intimidating, especially for someone who can’t walk well. Most of the time pedestrians are moving as fast as they can, so be patient and give them time to cross.
Playing loud music in your car can also irritate others and makes you less aware of your surroundings. Importantly, you are obliged to turn the music off when an emergency vehicle approaches.
