Individuals who are bad at knowing their surroundings, and are careless are likely to be bad drivers. Just common sense really.
no, not really.. im really bad at noticing stuff (i.e. details of an object, stores that i pass by, etc)... but when it comes to driving, im pretty good (above average) at sensing the projected paths of other objects and my car

this may be a little offtopic...but im getting a little tired of this gene b.s.....it seems like they have a gene to blame everything on....genes that make people want to be risk takers...genes that make people less social...now genes that make you a bad driver...driving is a learned skill...how could we have genes that determine a specific learned skill...now im sure their are genes that determine how well we learn...but not how well we do a particular skill that has to be learned
in particular i dont like this line "The next time you see a motorist obliviously straddling two lanes, don't fault bad driving, but genetics."...what is next? o don't blame him that he murdered 22 people with a pickax....it was his genes...he had no choice...that is bs....
i know what u mean.. blaming the gene doesnt make it sound any better either; it makes the person sound like he is an inferior being in the evolutionary process
altho not a fact, but i sometimes wonder if genes not only define our looks but also define our personality or not..i wonder how deep do genes actually define us.. call me crazy, but i wonder if genes define our future as well :shock:
