I do not claim to be a good driver myself and it is been a long time since i drove, may be because of two things my husbands lack of trust in my driving skills and my fear of proving him right.
But its not only women who are lousy drivers there are plenty of men out there too who have very bad driving skills too. In fact, according to some studies, women are gentle drivers because of their cool temperament on the other hand men are aggressive drivers.
Believe it or not, either women or men, no ones is perfect and we all have some short comings. Following are few of the common mistakes made by women while driving :
- Wrong Space Perception:
While parking a car you should utilize all three mirrors ( side mirrors and back) to calculate the distance between the parking space. The distance between your bumper and parking space should be precise otherwise you might end up bumping your car.
- Not focusing far-ahead:
Second most common mistake we all make is we do not focus on the things far ahead, like vehicles, turns, road signs etc. If only we focus far ahead we will be able to react in time and save everyone on the road from the stress and panic. Driving is all about your coordination between your eyes and hands. It is like a mind game the more fast your reflexes are more likely you will win the game.
- Zero awareness of Auto maintenance:
We mostly do not know much when it comes to car maintenance. I am not saying you to be a mechanical engineer but at least you should know the basic technicalities about your car so you can make a decision to go forward whenever needed.
- Multi tasking:
No doubt women are hell of a multi taskmasters but when it comes to driving, Please, do not act like a super women. If you have a lot of things to do while travelling, like making phone calls, putting make up on, munching on your food,applying nail paint and taking selfies, please, let someone else drive for you.
- Change of mind:
Mostly we are never completely sure about things, like which color to pick which heels to shop and where to go or not to go? we will possibly change our mind on the last minute and plan to go somewhere else. That is the main mistake we make while we are driving. You should make up your mind and navigate the route before hand, in order to make things easy for you and the people on the roads.
Though i hate to admit it but a bad female driver is the worst scenario anyone wants to be with on the roads. So instead of being over defensive we should polish our driving skills and become the super-fabulous-female-drivers anyone could ever think about.
