Stubborn Drivers aren’t Safe Drivers
It’s an all too familiar scenario.
You’ve taken a wrong turn, missed your intersection and somehow wound up lost in the middle of nowhere without a clue where you’re going.
What do you do?
Do you stop and ask for directions, or do you grit your teeth and keep on keeping on in the vain hope that you’ll eventually get back on track.
If you’re a guy you’d probably opt for the latter wouldn’t you? Stubbornly insisting that you stick to a plan that clearly isn’t working.
No doubt it’s to do with some misguided sense of machismo.
It’s crazy of course.
But according to some new research by a Canadian psychological company it might not necessarily be all our fault. http://www.news1130.com/2014/03/28/men-are-less-likely-to-take-direction-and-criticism-study/
Apparently our inability to ask for directions is built into our DNA. It’s the same thing that makes it difficult for us to take criticism at work and at home.
To be honest it just sounds like another excuse to me, another reason to pass the buck when it comes to driving responsibly.
After all this isn’t just about asking for directions it’s about our approach to driving in general.
Whether it’s asking for directions or ensuring that we give driving our full attention, it’s up to us to step up to the plate and ensure that the safety of ourselves, our families and other road users is front of mind every time we step behind the wheel.
