When we were in the thick of the pandemic, hardly anybody was on the roads. We were all mandated to “shelter in place,” and unless you were an Essential Worker you were working from home.
It seems that in these three years, we’ve all forgotten how to drive.
Per PR Newswire, a survey of 2,000 Americans found that 54% of us think the average driver has gotten worse over the pandemic. In addition, 40% of us feel less safe on the roads than we did before 2020.
Our patience with bad drivers has worn pretty thin, as well.
32% of folks said they were now “less tolerant” of traffic versus pre-pandemic, where only 20% said they were “more tolerant.”
