Fundamentally unsafe drivers need to be re-examined
There is bad driving every day on Bermuda roads. We all see it.
My pet peeve is with drivers when they are right in the middle of the road, clogging traffic and making safe overtaking far more difficult.
Yours may be poor entry to roundabouts or crazy speeding, third-laning or running red lights — examples come to mind so easily.
To me, the fundamental concern is that our driving instructors and examiners do not focus on the right issue. It’s all about safe parking, hill starts and so forth.
That is not what kills people. Lack of courtesy, not knowing the rules, not indicating, lack of awareness, lack of common sense and lack of consideration for others are what kills people.
We need to re-examine what is being tested and taught, and have a far better system.
Hey, insurers, where are you on this? What do you think should be tested? Would you give a discount on premium to those already-qualified drivers who retake and pass a new, improved test?
