Driver's Aggravation: Dealing with distracted drivers
RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — This month we start a new series titled, "Driver's Aggravation." We posed the question to you via Facebook and Twitter, "What are your pet peeves and gripes while traveling along Valley roadways?" and you told us.
This week's Driver's Aggravation, a big one that you guys requested, "What are you supposed to do with those distracted drivers?" Putting on makeup in the car, people on the cell phone texting or talking. What are you supposed to do? How are you supposed to share the road with them? We asked our experts.
DPS Trooper Maria Hernandez stated, "If you encounter a distracted driver on the expressway or any other type of roadway, you might want to maintain a distance. If possible, change lanes and avoid traveling behind that vehicle. That driver may continue to reduce speed and possibly cause a crash or cause other dangers."
