Driving mistakes we are all guilty of

Posted by:

When you ask people if they are better than the average driver, 90% say yes. But this is statistically impossible. Because, you know, 50% have to fall below the midpoint. It’s how averages work. Yet there is another statistical phenomenon. People gravitate towards averages. That is on a scale of 10, most people are between 3 and 7 at driving. So, the majority of us are not perfect, and we make mistakes. Today we will look at ...
