With every new year comes everyone’s best intentions. People are losing weight, saving money, and spending more time with family, but one thing is for certain: not enough people have resolved to stop driving like morons.
A recent study by Desrosiers–which polled over 4500 drivers–revealed the worst driving habits among Canadians in 2018. To the surprise of no one, speeding was the number one complaint, followed by other drivers following too closely, and a lack of signaling.
Nearly 40% complained about speeding drivers
Almost 25% complained about drivers following too closely
Nearly 20% complained about other drivers not signaling
Lesser complaints (~5%) included driving too slowly, braking too often, and making slow lane changes.
Which clearly wasn’t a problem for this guy.
Respondents over 55 complained about speed at a slightly higher clip (42.2%), while female respondents (42.1%) complained about speeding more than men (37.2%). In terms of provincial demographics, Quebec respondents were the most likely to think that speeding was a problem (46%).
Quebec also led the way in following too closely, at 27%.
