DRIVING HABITS: FOCUS ON THE ROAD, NOT YOUR PHONE
All states have their own driving law quirks. In Alabama, some rules prove confounding for many drivers.
WVUA 23 took to the streets and asked some drivers if they knew the common traffic laws.
While most passed, all were at least a little confused about the divided highway sign.
Samantha Angle is from Ohio and said driving in Alabama is different.
“I feel like they’re similar laws, but people drive nicer down here,” she said. “People from Ohio kind of road rage, I think.”
Bailey Waite said if drivers are not familiar with the driving culture here, their own habits can come into play.
“Sometimes people can cut you off because they’re not as familiar with the way people around here drive,” Waite said.
Northport Police Capt. Keith Carpenter said drivers should focus on the road instead of the radio, social media or their phones.
