Short examples of bad driving.
Just some clips taken over the past couple of weeks whilst either out on a lesson or on the way into work. The learner car at the end wasn't the driver's fault, the driving instructor should have anticipated and corrected him earlier.

Canada's Worst Driver - S06E02
Episode 2: Driving Blind
Original airdate: November 1, 2010
The RV Challenge -- In every province in Canada, ordinary drivers are licensed to drive a vehicle 12 metres long and weighing up to 11 tonnes. In this challenge, contestants must reverse one such vehicle around a gentle curve. For this challenge, all eight contestants must take the course together. Dean, going first, scrapes the paint off, but Scott, in the passenger seat, manages to correct his course in the latter half of his run. Jamie is coached by Paul and Scott through her run in a similar manner, but hits 18 things. Scott has few problems in his own run, while Brad focuses so much on his driver-side mirror he takes off his passenger-side mirror, and the cross-talk between Scott, Dean, and Paul gets him confused, though he does finish. Paul forces his way through the course, but only hits six things. Dale is guided by four contestants inside the vehicle and John outside to pass her run. Diane also goes through the first half of the course without hitting anything, and her second half is only marginally worse. Lance, going last, breaks down halfway through his run, and has to be continually comforted by Scott, Paul, and Brad.
Running the Rails -- The contestants must drive a car up a set of rails over a pool, touching a stop sign without dislodging a set of garbage cans above the sign, before reversing the way they came. Brad slides off after three seconds, and fails. Dean slides off to the right going forwards, while neither Dale or Jamie even get aligned in the beginning. Scott has an advantage from a long lead-up, but knocks over the garbage cans and falls out of alignment in the reverse. Diane also does likewise. Paul, whose main problem is driving in the presence of other cars, remains calm and passes the course. Lance manages to stay balanced, but starts to reverse well before hitting the stop sign.
The Posture Check -- Phillippe evaluates the driving postures of all eight contestants, and corrects them if necessary. In addition, Phillippe teaches them the proper way to check blind spots on the car. This skill is important in the next challenge...
Camaro Challenge: The Shoulder Check Challenge -- The traditional shoulder check challenge will be done in the Camaro this year. In this challenge, drivers must drive past a set of lights at 80 km/h and look behind them to see which way to go to avoid a large stop sign in front of them (if neither side is safe, they are directed to stop in front of the sign). Paul, despite Andrew's visible concern due to a perceived larger blind spot, passes easily. Jamie fails as she turns her wheel as she does her checks. Lance does not turn in time, and hits the stop sign. Dean passes easily, while Brad goes too fast and goes the wrong way. Dale also passed, but she didn't see which way to go and blindly guessed. Diane, who has trouble accelerating to highway speeds, accelerates to 80 km/h, but didn't shoulder check at all, crashing into the stop sign. Scott takes the wrong turn and fails, but it is the straw that breaks the camel's back for Danny. As they leave the course, Danny lashes out at Scott for failing to take things seriously, calling him "Hollywood".
Before Scott takes his run, Scott's driving history is revealed. Though ostensibly entering rehab to be a better driver for his son Issac, he quickly earns the ire of the show's crew for his juvenile behaviour. Near the end of the show, Scott stated on camera that he had driven far over the speed limit, had a suspended license, used another person's license while his was suspended, and drove while drunk; Cam, as a former police officer, relayed the information to the Calgary Police Service, due to an obligation to his former profession. Meanwhile, Danny is so outraged (due to Scott effectively driving on Danny's insurance) that he calls his insurance company and has the insurance policy canceled effective the day after the challenge, meaning that Scott was no longer insured. As such, he is no longer permitted to drive in any future challenges. Due to his ineligibility, Scott's license is returned, and he leaves rehab in a cab with Danny, but not before the weight of reality sets in for him. At the time this episode aired, Scott had not been criminally charged in relation to any of the issues raised in the episode. Andrew expresses that Scott may very well never be charged. After the series' original airing, Schurink was arrested and charged with drug trafficking on December 19, 2010.
