Four Signs You Are A Bad Driver

The first step to handling a problem is admitting that you have one in the first place. Do you suspect you might be a bad driver? To help you determine if you have a problem, here are a four signs you are a bad driver.

 

Front Bumper Accident

If you’re a bad driver, it’s better to find out from our list than it is to find out on — or veering off — the road.

1. Where do people often pass you?

Everyone knows the rule, keep on the right unless you intend to pass. If people are passing you on the right, that means you are camping out in the left lane. Not only will this not make you any friends, it interrupts the flow of traffic.

2. You get into a lot of accidents.

As Jalopnik says, if your “bumpers have more than three colors on them,” you might be a bad driver.

3. Your tires and brakes are wearing out too quickly.

Wearing out your brakes could indicate that you are a “tailgater.” If your tire specialist tells you that you visit him or her far more often than others, it might mean you are taking corners too quickly.

4. Your friends always make excuses to drive when you go out.

But all of your friends get carsick if they ride shotgun, you say? All of them? Really?

If bad driving has already gotten the best of you, check out our service department to book an appointment.

How many of these sins do you or those dearest to you commit?

Ford Joins Forces With Foreigner To Drum Up Rock 4 UR School Initiative

Foreigner

Foreigner is teaming up with Ford in the Rock 4 UR School promotion.

Time to dig your leather jacket and stonewashed jeans out of the closet! The band who brought you hits like “Cold As Ice,” “Hot-Blooded,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Juke Box Hero” and “I Want To Know What Love Is” is hitting the road again.

But giving audiences a blast from the past isn’t the only purpose for Foreigner’s Fall tour. The rock band has teamed up with Ford to help the automaker’s Rock 4 UR School initiative.

As a press release from Ford explains, high school choirs in select cities will be able to submit videos of themselves performing “I Want To Know What Love Is.” The winning choir will have the opportunity to join Foreigner to perform what was their biggest hit. The choir will also have the opportunity to host a fundraising event, with the chance to earn up to $6,000 for their choir program.

Tracy Magee, Ford experiential marketing manager, said, “We are delighted to partner with such an iconic and influential band like Foreigner to provide support and visibility for high school choir programs.”

We’re hoping that choirs around the Springfield area put their pipes to good use and raise money for a school near Aurora!
