About This Quiz

For many of us, it is considered one of the rites of passage into adulthood: sitting behind the steering wheel of a car, nervously adjusting your mirrors, and gingerly starting your life on the road as a new driver.  When we first start, we grip our steering wheels, maintaining our hands at the 10 and 2 positions.  We keep our eyes vigilant on the road, making sure to pass others only after checking our mirrors and blind spots.  Food never enters the car and music is kept at a lower volume.  Then it happens.

You're running late, whether it be from a date or on the way to work.  You don't see anyone at a stop sign, so you cruise through it.  It at first gives you a little thrill to break a small rule of the road, but then it bites you in the butt: You do your usual cruise through, right into the side of another car.  Luckily, no one was hurt, but both of the vehicles need a trip to a body shop.  To add insult to injury, not only do you get a moving violation, but your insurance prices go up. 

While the example above is pretty unique, we all have our bad habits that can make trips on the road unbearable to other drivers.  Let's see if we can guess what yours is by taking this quiz!
