4) Braking and Accelerating Suddenly

Braking and accelerating suddenly are some of the marks of an aggressive driver. But these actions do not only put other drivers and pedestrians at risk. They can also cause damage to your car, costing you money and worry. When you do these things, you burn through more fuel, as well as putting stress on your engine and tires. Since these parts are often very expensive to replace, ruining them is a bad move. If your engine overheats due to aggressive maneuvers, your car may become very unsafe and undrivable. There is also the chance of other mechanical problems arising from this type of behavior. For example, slamming on the brake to stop short can wear down your brake pads and rotors, and pressure may be put on mechanism joints. Overall, driving more calmly and carefully will preserve the longevity of your vehicle.
