Judge a Driver by His/Her Car's Condition
It may seem rude to judge someone solely based on their car’s appearance. After all, when we were young, we were taught to never judge a book by its cover. Should we abandon this rule when it comes to driving? In a word, yes. Let’s face it—we judge others all the time, whether we are fully aware of it or not. We even judge others as we’re driving. Have you ever seen a Lamborghini or Ferrari and thought “That person must be rich?” You don’t even know that person and you’re already judging him or her based on perceived economic status.
Judging someone based on their car’s appearance can actually help you avoid accidents on the roadway. Not sure how that works? Read on to learn more about judging a driver by their car’s appearance.
Why You Should Note Body Damage
Have you ever come across those cars that are in dire need of repair? You know, the ones with the busted-out windows or the ones where the bumper is about to come off? These drivers don’t care enough to keep their car in good condition. This lack of focus on their care could extend itself to the roadway. These same people may lack focus while driving. They may have other things on their mind, so proceed with caution when you see a badly damaged car during your travels.
Why You Should Note Cleanliness
A dirty car shows a lack of care. Given that we drive our cars daily (or almost daily), we should spend time keeping them in good condition. While we lead busy lives and cannot always keep our cars looking like the way they did when we drove them off the lot, a dirty car may indicate something about its driver, such as irresponsibility or business, or distractedness. This isn’t always the case, of course, but it could be, meaning a little extra caution on your part would never hurt.
Judging a Car By Its Actions
You should not only judge a car’s appearance but its movements as well. For example, if the car keeps drifting into the adjacent lane, the driver could be distracted or intoxicated. You may also notice that a driver continues speeding up and slowing down, which could mean that they are either distracted or having car trouble, neither of which you want to be around if something goes wrong. Keep your distance in these cases and try to get around the car as quickly and safely as possible.
