The Five Types of Winnipeg Drivers

September 6th, 2018 by

When asked, everyone will say that they are a “good driver” but if you’ve ever spent more than 10 minutes on a Winnipeg road, you’ll know that this isn’t the case. Our “Driver Detectives” have put together a list of the Five Types of Winnipeg Drivers.

The Slow Poke

This can be anyone from the new driver next door, to the retired semi-truck driver. These folks are ones you don’t want to get stuck behind when you’re in a hurry. Travelling well under the speed limit, these folks enjoy stopping instead of yielding, taking an extra five minutes to leave their parking spaces, and refuse to drive after dark.

Speed Racer

No one knows if these types of Winnipeg Drivers are perpetually late or just have a lead foot. Watch out for speed racers, as they can come in many different shapes and sizes. Weaving in and out of traffic is a favourite pastime and can usually been seen followed by a police car. The rev of the engine is the Speed Racer’s theme music.

DJ Driver

You can hear these folks before you see them. Fond of “dropping the bass” in traffic. Unafraid to be themselves, the DJ Driver can be seen jamming out and drumming their steering wheels anywhere from a red light downtown, or in a McDonald’s drive thru.

The Jugglers

Mastering the art of using their knees to steer was no easy task, but someone had to do it! Driving for these folks is a simple, mundane task. The morning commute is no biggie for Jugglers with one hand on the steering wheel and the other cradling a coffee cup. The driver’s seat doubles as a makeup table/breakfast nook most days. These folks know the true value of an infotainment system.

The Perfect Driver

Rarely seen but often spoken of. These types of Winnipeg Drivers have low MPI payments and high self-esteem. Most people will place themselves in this category, but not many of their passengers will agree. These folks can often be found as backseat drivers, but rarely in the driver’s seat themselves.
