Stay away from road rage with this Good Driver’s guide to driving.

The 25 golden rules of driving etiquette everyone Should Follow

There are couple of factors in life much more frustrating than not being thanked when you’ve stopped to allow an oncoming car to pass. At this stage, I completely comprehend unmanageable road rage – at its pitch-dark level. What i’m saying is, when did individuals turn out to be so self-absorbed that they couldn’t be worried to raise one finger from the steering wheel? As well as nod their head?

However, just the other day I was driving down a narrow lane – the sun was teasing the road, the birds were chirping – and I received a thumbs up from a other driver. It made my weakling afternoon. A thumbs up I gave in return, a smile spread across my face. A basic understanding of driving etiquette goes a long way

Listed below are the 25 golden rules of driving etiquette:

  1. A good driver will not loiter in the middle lane – the left lane is called the slow lane for a reason
  2. A good driver accepts responsibility if he is at fault
  3. A good driver will give wide berth to a horse on a country lane
  4. A good driver does not speed, unless the car he is driving is worth it. Or he is taking his in-labour wife to hospital. Or his Labrador is injured
  5. A good driver does not flick between lanes in slow moving traffic
  6. A good driver will always thank anyone who has gone out of their way to let them have right of way
  7. A good driver does not rev his engine in a built up area – unless he drives a V12 (its noise is poetry, not pollution)
  8. A gentleman dips his headlights well in advance
  9. A good driver does not call the AA for a flat tyre – it is like calling an ambulance for a splinter
  10. A good driver calls a cab after having more than the driving limit
  11. A good driver does not tailgate – even if he owns an Audi
  12. A good driver does not feel the need to show off how lack of manhood by playing aggressively loud music with all the windows down
  13. A good driver does not spend more time cleaning his car than he does himself
  14. A good driver has never considered getting a body kit
  15. A good driver will always slow down for animals
  16. A good driver does not refer to the police as Rozzas, POPO, or Pigs
  17. A good driver accepts his parking tickets with dignity rather than fury
  18. A good driver pulls over if he is causing a tailback
  19. A good driver is never a back-seat driver
  20. A good driver does not undertake – he has a brain
  21. A good driver who drives a Defender always acknowledges a fellow Defender driver
  22. A good driver refrains from using his horn
  23. A good driver lets other cars pull into the flow of slow traffic
  24. A good driver never resorts to full-blown road rage – he doesn’t want to be a YouTube sensation
  25. A good driver does not adorn his car with eye lashes, fluffy dice or nodding dogs
