New drivers tend to be kind of timid and maybe even TOO careful sometimes.  But give your teenager a few months, and they’ll have the same terrible, annoying driving habits as the rest of us . . .

A new study found the average person starts adopting bad driving habits about 10 weeks after they get their license.  So about two-and-a-half months in.  Here are eight habits, and how long it takes before we start doing them . . .

1.  Giving up on gripping the wheel at “10 and 2”, 3 months and 15 days in.  That’s also right around when we start driving with one hand.

2.  Not always wearing your seatbelt, 3 months and 18 days.

3.  Forgetting to check your mirrors when you change lanes, 3 months and 21 days.

4.  Not using turn signals, 4 months and 12 days.

5.  Tailgating, 4 months and 15 days.

6.  Riding in the left lane when people need to pass, 4 months and 18 days.

7.  Cutting people off, 5 months and 3 days.

8.  Running red lights, 5 months and 6 days.
