The interviewer wants to hear that you do not overreact when you see another vehicle making poor choices on the road. Simply share that from time-to-time you will see another vehicle make a poor choice, and you realize it is your responsibility to remain professional and make the best choice to stay safe at the time. Mention that you do not overreact in these situations, and you simply proceed on with the drive without getting stressed out about it.

Question 5 of 24
Does traffic congestion stress you out? How do you handle it?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Nope! Interviewers want to hear that you can handle the traffic congestion with ease. Be sure to mention what cities you have driven in and what type of traffic you are accustomed to. Let the interviewer know that you simply analyze the traffic situation to ensure you are staying safe.

Note: If you are a newer driver, it is okay to be a little uneasy about driving in bigger cities with a lot of traffic. Don't be afraid to mention this during an interview. The interviewer will likely provide you with a few extra ride alongs to ensure you are comfortable before being sent out alone.
