***Myth***You’re a safe driver. It’s the other guy who’s the problem.
Truth: OK, so this isn’t a mechanical myth, but it is the most pervasive myth of all. Studies show that the overwhelming majority of drivers classify themselves as “safe drivers” or rate themselves in the top 50 percent for their driving skill. It’s those other, crazy drivers out there who cause problems, right? But the truth is, those other drivers probably don’t classify you as an above-average driver, either. In reality, most of us fall into the below-average category at least some of the time.
