I also hope that they view me in exactly the same way.

That way, we might just both survive undamaged ...
Mutually assured destruction...not a tactic we'd agree to but seems to work well!

The rest I can deal with.
Common Sense.
This needs to be taught to every driver!

Its just my exp but i think to have at least light accident with yout car is good thing. After my first accident my driving style changed very much as you understand what happens when you make even small mistake.
Worst thing on road for me its drivers dont keep distance and dont give you any space. I never understood this behaviar. More space = more time to react to something , less distance = almost not possible react to anything.
Bad thing people dont know car that they drive. Take car to remote empty places and try to make it slide , skid, spin wheels, lock brakes with turn lock brakes on straight and such. Learn car then you be better driver on road as you would have understanding how it handles.
We agree with learning everything about car control and reaction times! However we recommend attending an advance driving course where a professional driver can teach the ins and outs of handling the car in all situations while in a controlled environment.

Got to hand it to the professionals driving those road trains! Also, any drive in the outback is relaxing; mostly because of the amazing scenery!
