Прочтите следующие комментарии (a-d) о плохом вождении. Для вопросов с 1 по 5 выберите наилучший ответ (a, b, c или d).
Read the following comments (a-d) on bad driving. For questions 1 to 5, choose the best answer (a, b, c or d).

I hate people who drive really close behind me because they want me to go quickly, especially if it's dark or the weather is bad. It makes me very nervous. So I drive even more slowly and that makes it worse. It's also very dangerous because if I stopped suddenly, the other car wouldn't be able to stop and would probably hit me. I usually pull over and let the other car pass. Then I can relax again.

I don't agree with driving too fast. It's dangerous and irresponsible, especially when there are a lot of people or children around. But it's almost as bad to drive too slowly on a fast road. It causes a long line of traffic and is very annoying. This makes it dangerous because when other drivers get annoyed they sometimes do crazy things to try to pass the slow driver.

I can't stand motorists who use their mobile phones when they're driving. How can they be in total control of their car when they only have one hand on the steering wheel? It's not so bad when they are on a long straight motorway and there's not much traffic, but it's risky in a town when they are turning a corner or going through a busy intersection. Some motorists use headsets to talk into so that they can use both hands. But researchers say that that is almost as dangerous because the driver isn't concentrating fully if he's talking on the phone.

For me it's the people who drive through town with their windows open and really loud music coming from their car stereo. I don't think they do it because they like listening to music. It's because they want people to notice them. It's childish and antisocial. Why do I have to listen to somebody else's favourite music? It's also bad for the people in the car because such loud music can damage your hearing.
