About This Quiz

Everyone thinks they're a good driver, but we know the truth: you are the only person who is totally right about it. All the other drivers are on a spectrum that starts at tolerable and descends into the murky depths of outright dangerous.

We can broadly agree on what makes a driver flat-out dangerous. Anyone who drives way over the speed limit, pays no attention to the road or disrespects the concept of drunk driving is dangerous. Indeed, many of us know that the most dangerous driver, statistically speaking, is anyone who hasn't had a good night's sleep. However, exhaustion is about as bad for your reaction time as chugging a great many drinks.

Still, while we all know who's dangerous, we disagree on who is the most annoying - and it's entirely possible that one person's annoying is another person's idea of a marvelous driver. After all, some of us insist the rules should be obeyed no matter what, while others are certain that going at the speed limit when everyone else is going 10 mph faster is quite risky. Some of us always take advantage of a gap, while others give way constantly. Some of us are very careful about never glancing at our phones, while others do sneak a peek when stopped at a light. It's all a matter of preferences and habits - and until self-driving cars have us all napping on the road, the drivers who trigger our pet peeves are here to stay! Let's find yours!
