Spending many hours on the road and under varied driving conditions comes with the job of being an Accredited Driver Trainer. Not only is the trainer teaching the technical skills of driving but also helping learners gain the confidence to drive safely. Unfortunately, the incidents of road rage and unsafe intimidatory behaviour against learner drivers and other road users seems to have become more prevalent.
One of the common forms of illegal behaviour is the use of horns and other similar warning devices towards learner drivers and other road users. As well as being illegal, the use of horns is distracting, damages a new drivers confidence, and can easily cause a road crash injuring people or worse.
