Everyone's driving badly, except me.

If 85% of Argentines were to handle as well as they think, 20 people wouldn't be dying every day

As we are

Twenty per day are people who die  from traffic accidents in Argentina, according to data from the civil association  Let's fight for life . 7213 deaths during 2017, not counting injuries, material damage and psychological damage (caused by stress and puteos caused by bad drivers).

We can try to find different causes for this phenomenon, but the fundamental one is only one: the difference between the rod with which we measure our own performance behind the wheel and the rod with which we measure that of others.

A survey by the Chamber of Enterprises for Control and Administration of Traffic Offences of Argentina (Cecaitra) indicates that only 17% of  motorists  have a “relatively good” opinion on general compliance with  traffic regulations .aacute; nsito , peeeero 85% have a favorable opinion of himself. This is easily synthesized: “Everyone handles badly, except me.”

Clearly, if 85% of Argentines managed as well as they think, 20 people would not be dying every day. What happens is that it is easier to point out the next door than to do  mea culpa  and recognize our own shortcomings. It's easier if the boludo is the other. That's why, maybe we can start by changing the axiom: “Everyone handles badly, even me.”
