(Woman's Day) When it comes to driving mistakes, most people are in the "it's not me, it's you" camp. Everything from minor scrapes to major collisions can easily be blamed on the other driver. But what if it is actually your fault? Here are the 10 driving mistakes you are probably making: 
  1. You're not paying as much attention to the road as you think you are 
  2. You're focusing on the wrong part of the road 
  3. You're waiting too long to check your tire pressure 
  4. You're spending too much on gas 
  5. You aren't heeding wet roadways quickly enough 
  6. You're applying too much pressure to the gas and brake pedals 
  7. You change your mind about turning too often 
  8. Your car isn't properly adjusted to your body 
  9. You aren't prepared for vehicle maintenance 
Meanwhile, another survey says the angriest drivers are in New York. Yes, the Big Apple ranks as the road rage capitol of America in a poll of motorists for the AutoVantage Road Rage Survey. Beating out 25 other metro areas, aggressive New York drivers took the number one spot by being tops at speeding, tailgating, cutting off other drivers and blowing up behind the wheel. Dallas-Fort Worth drivers were the second most aggressive, followed by motorists in Detroit, Atlanta and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Last year's leader Miami dropped to seventh place. Meanwhile, Portland and Cleveland boasted the nicest drivers, followed by Baltimore, Sacramento and Pittsburgh.
