40. Egotism

Egotism is the same thing as being self-centered. People who are egotistical feel like they own the road and do not consider the rights of other drivers. The heart of egotism is disrespect for other drivers on the road.

Drivers who are egotistic tend to engage in speeding, risk taking, unsafe rapid starts, and aggressive behavior. Egotistical drivers do not make room for merging vehicles, do not yield the right-of-way, do not let other drivers pass, follow emergency vehicles too closely or fail to yield to them, and cut off other drivers by merging at too slow or too fast of a speed.

Remember that all drivers share the road. Be aware of and courteous to other drivers, and they will be more likely to be courteous to you.

Emotional Instability

Being angry or upset while driving can result in inattentiveness, aggressive behavior, poor judgment, and poor vehicle control.

If you are angry or upset, do not drive your vehicle. You will not be able to give safe driving the full attention that it requires. Make sure to calm down before you get behind the wheel.
