Where do most drivers develop there driving habits from: from the person who taught them to drive(ie driving instructor, parent, friend); from observing other drivers on the road; mainly from their own personality(their driving is just a part of their personality like the way they tie thier shoes or get dressed in the morning)?
I ask this question because everymorning when i'm out there early riding thru my neighborrhood and the industrial area in back of us i get passed by the same drivers and each one of them has a different way of dealing with me on the road. There's guys from the pest control company, some plumbers, a few couriers, and then the newspaper guys comingand going to the distribution warehouse. Some of these guys will lift off the gas pedal and/or brake when they pass you, you get the dudes that will just stay on the gas and speed past like you weren't there. You get the guys that will buzz you like you dont exist, you get the ones thatll move way over to the other side of the road like you have the plague lol. you get the guys thatll dim there brights for you, and you got the guys thatll keep there brights on and blind you, and you got the guys thatll have their low beams on and then see you and then flick the brights on
I was a sidewalk rider untill november 2007. Than when I started riding in the street i started noticing this stuff. and what really makes it easy to see the drivers habits is that its the same guys every morning that i'm seeing. when youre riding in the street you're kind of having a conversation with the drivers and you're picking up vibes of their personality by the way they drive.
