Our communication skills are incredibly important and can make or break an entire driver’s experience on the road. They can also be the biggest reason why drivers are often pulled over by the police for minor violations, such as speeding, and for driving under the influence.
In a busy traffic environment it’s common for drivers to use words, gestures, body language, and more to communicate with one another. They usually do this in a way that is easy for other drivers to understand and interpret. For example, if a driver is texting and another driver is looking at him, the driver with the phone in his hand is making a call.
That’s the concept behind “verbal communication.” But what about all the other forms of communication drivers have in a busy traffic jam? Here is a breakdown of some of those forms of communication that drivers are likely to use depending on the type of traffic jam you live in.
Texting is the second most common form of communication drivers use and the most obvious. Most other forms of communication are more subtle but can reveal the same things. For example, an angry driver might be saying, “I’m so mad right now,” as he is pulling over to the side of the road to let a passenger out. This is the kind of situation where an angry driver might be saying, “I’m so mad right now.
That’s the kind of situation you’ll often run into on a busy road. If you’re sitting in the back seat of your parent’s car, you might be saying, Im so mad right now. If you’re on a bus, you might be saying, Im so mad right now. If you’re in a taxi, you might be saying, Im so mad right now. This is one of the commonest forms of communication drivers use.
As it turns out, the first two examples we gave above, i.e. pulling over to let a passenger out, and on a bus, are the only ones that really come up in our research. However, in an earlier study, we found that the third example, i.e. being on the back seat of your parents car, is used by 2% of drivers.
In today’s world, with social media, texting, instant messaging, and the internet, it’s difficult to know if you’re speaking to a friend, family member, or co-worker. This is where the driver’s behavior becomes important. In our study, we asked drivers to drive around on a very busy highway with about 30 traffic signs and traffic cones.
Drivers were asked to say what they would say and do if they were in the back seat of their parent’s car. We then compared their responses with their behavior in front of traffic in the same environment. We found that drivers with a more open communication style are more likely to be more aggressive and more likely to be involved in an accident. We also found that drivers who would use a turn signal while driving would have less accidents, and these drivers were driving slower.
Our study found that drivers who engage in more conversation are more likely to be involved in an accident. This is because drivers who talk to other drivers while driving are less likely to be involved in a traffic accident, and in fact, they’re less likely to be involved in an accident. This is based on our research finding that drivers who have fewer conversations while driving are more likely to be involved in an accident.
Talking while driving is considered a basic communication pattern because it makes it easier for drivers to be aware of each other when they’re behind the wheel. It also makes it easier for drivers to get a sense of the road. However, there are a lot of other communication patterns that can be used while driving that can help you avoid an accident. For example, when driving behind the scenes, a driver can use silent communication to avoid an accident.
