Behind the Wheel: Good manners are not suspended when you get behind the wheel of an automobile. A good driver is knowledgable, alert, cautious, and sober. A courteous driver is one who is sensitive to the needs and predicaments of other drivers and who does not react negatively to the aggressive rudeness of others. A good and courteous driver is always alert to and respectful of pedestrians, runners, bicyclists, and others who share the roads with motorists. A courteous driver avoids using the horn and keeps the volume of the stereo at a reasonable level, and ignores the rude behavior of others.
