My Driving Resolutions for 2010

I usually do not make New Year resolutions. However this year I wanted to do things a bit differently and spent some thought on what I would try to follow as my driving resolutions for the year. Here they are:

  • To follow rules of the road & maintain speed limits
  • To use indicators while changing lanes always
  • To check all directions before turning /changing lanes 
  • To allow every “horny” and “flashy” driver behind to pass me when safe to do so
  • To not take it personally when cut off by rude drivers/bikers etc.
  • To drive defensively by staying alert, calm and composed on the road
  • To use the horn only when absolutely necessary ( reducing this has reduced my stress and made me a more careful driver)
  • To stretch every drop of fuel as much as possible – for our future generations
  • To limiting taking off from signals to once in a long while
  • To take public transport/company bus whenerver possible

Wish you all a great New Year and years to come – filled with the best of affordable vehicles, good roads, well behaved traffic and low fuel prices !

It sounds too good to be true – but just takes one person at a time to follow the rules and make the roads better –  that one person is you ! What are your new year resolutions ? Please let us know through comments.
