New Year's Driving Resolutions

Struggling to keep up New Year resolutions or simply can’t think of any? Well here are some bad driving habits that you could give up for your new year’s resolution.

2023 New Years

1. Throwing rubbish in your car:

It makes your vehicle look like a bin on wheels, but it can also attract pests and create a health hazard. Plus, imagine the embarrassment of arriving to a fancy event with rubbish coming out the door with you! So next time you're tempted to throw that empty wrapper or bottle in the backseat, just remember: your car is not a bin. Keep it clean and classy you won’t regret it, but if you are still struggling pop a small bin in the back of the car to keep it as an organised mess!

2. Eating behind the wheel: 

Nobody wants to see you chomping down on a chicken fillet roll while trying to navigate rush hour traffic. Not only is it messy, but it's also a major distraction for you. Keep your meals for when you're at a stop or better yet, save them for when you get home. That way you can’t throw the rubbish in the back off the car, taking on two resolutions at once and you wont spill any food on your new Christmas clothes.

3. Road rage:

it's the angry elephant in the room of our daily commutes. We've all been there: stuck in traffic, running late, and suddenly some inconsiderate driver cuts us off or drives too slowly in the fast lane. Road rage is a bad habit and one we should all strive to break. Just imagine the embarrassment of flipping someone off in your car, only to realize they're your boss or your kid's teacher. (Mortified!!)

So just let that rude driver go on their merry way, and try to stay calm. You'll arrive at your destination eventually, and you'll get there with your dignity (and your driver's license) intact. Not to mention it’s lowering your blood pressure to give you that healthy kick for the new year!!

4. Cutting off other drivers:

We all get a bit disgruntled while driving sometimes, however it really is no excuse to cut off other drivers, it just increases someone else’s road rage as well as being dangerous. Take a deep breath and remember to be courteous on the road as you don’t know how bad some people’s road rage is.

5. Letting your petrol go to zero: 

Imagine this scenario: you're running late for a meeting, you're stuck in traffic, and suddenly, your car slowly sputters to a stop on the side of the road, No Petrol(AHHHH)

But it gets even worse. Now you're stranded on the side of the road, hoping someone will stop to help you. And even if you do manage to flag someone down, you'll have to beg for a lift to the nearest petrol station (while trying to avoid making awkward small talk with a stranger). So just fill it before at the ¼ mark.

6. Tailgating others on the road:

Much like cutting people off its just an awful habit . It's the ultimate in frustration: you're driving along, minding your own business, and suddenly you feel a presence looming behind you. You glance in your rear-view mirror to see a car practically attached to your bumper, their headlights practically blinding you.

Keep a safe distance from the car in front of you, and try to be patient. It may take a few extra seconds to get to your destination, but at least you'll get there in one piece.


Maybe you don’t do any of these or maybe you do them all, but here are our resolutions for your New Year’s resolution. We hope you are able to keep to one or all of them. Enjoy the year to come and best of luck in your resolutions!!
