5 Dangerous Driving Habits All Drivers Need To Avoid

distracted Driving

During the summer months, the roads can be busier than ever, as many people choose to go on vacation, or just participate in more activities. This can also mean that the summer months can have more dangerous road conditions. As you are out and about this summer, here are five of the most dangerous driving habits that you need to make sure you avoid.

Distracted driving

There is a reason why Ontario is enacting laws to combat distracted driving, as it is quickly becoming a leading cause of accidents. In fact, it is no the number one killer on our roads today. The term distracted driving includes everything from texting or talking on your phone while driving, to eating in the car, or even fixing your makeup. Not only can distracted driving be the cause of an accident, it can also cause you to get a hefty fine. That text, call, or snack just isn’t worth it.

Drinking and driving

Still one of the leading causes of vehicle-related fatalities, drinking and driving is unfortunately still prevalent. If you drink and drive you could end up in jail, or even lose your life. If you plan on drinking, call Gem Limo. We would be happy to be your transportation for the evening.


Speed limits are in place for a reason. They take into account things like road conditions, the type of road, and residential traffic. Not following the speed limit can be dangerous to both yourself and other drivers on the road.

Aggressive driving

Aggressive driving can include a number of things, such as following too closely, braking too soon, or weaving in and out of traffic. It can be difficult for other drivers to predict what you are going to do next if you drive in this fashion, and that can lead to accidents.

Not taking road conditions into account

If it’s wet out, or snowy, or even during construction season, it is important to take road conditions into account. Not doing so can lead to accidents, as well as damage to your car, which can prove quite costly.
