Recently, I read an article about “Canada’s Worst Driving Habits” found on In this article, it listed the top 12 worst habits from Canadian Drivers. There’s the list taken directly from

  1. Eating or drinking while driving (39 per cent)
  2. Speeding (36 per cent)
  3. Talking/texting on cell phone while driving (18 per cent)
  4. Following too closely (16 per cent)
  5. Road Rage (11 per cent)
  6. Failing to signal (10 per cent)
  7. Weaving in and out of traffic (7 per cent)
  8. Applying makeup while driving (3 per cent)
  9. Parking illegally (3 per cent)
  10. Parking in handicap spaces (2 per cent)
  11. Driving in the carpool lane (1 per cent)
  12. Other (3 per cent)

After reading this list, it made me wonder how many of these offences I commit.  Am I the safest driver?  Am I the worst driver?  Am I aware of how I’m driving?


How do you stack up?
