6 Different Types of Bad Drivers

6 Different Types of Bad Drivers
Alyssa Popolizio

After a long six-hour drive by myself I had a lot of time to observe other cars. I noticed the way that some cars stay in the first lane the whole ride, or how some drivers were able to eat and drive and only swerve their car around a few times. I’ve come up with 6 different types of drivers that you always see on the road.

1. The Speed Limiter

The speed limiter is someone that goes exactly the speed limit every single time they drive. They can usually be found in the first lane on the highway and right in front of your car every time you’re running late for something.

2. The Multi-Tasker

The multi-tasker is usually the type of person that you see swerving around their lane and sometimes ever coming off the road. No they’re not drunk, they’re just eating or texting or basically doing anything other than focusing on the road.

3. The Rusher

You’ll find the rusher either passing you on a back road, cutting you off on the highway, or pulled over by a cop (usually in that order too). They can be found in some type of expensive sports car that they brag to their friends about every time they see them.

4. The Honker

Let’s establish first hand that the honker has some serious road rage. Any little thing can set these people off. As soon as the light turns green you better start driving or you’re about to get an earful from these mad men.

5. The Grandparent(er)

These people are a lot like the speed limiter except they are about ten times worse. They’re the people that are going 30 in a 45, and when you pass them, and you are about to flip them a certain bird, you can’t help but feel bad because they’re old and can’t really help it.

(They are not to be confused with the first-timer, who's fresh from the DMV and who completely deserves the bird they're getting).

6. The Teenager

These types of drivers are a mixture between the multitasker and the rusher, a horrible combination. If you look in their car you’ll either see a ton of girls with the windows down singing (really badly) to some Taylor Swift song or a ton of guys with their arms out the window and their music so loud you can feel the vibrations from your car.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
