New drivers tend to be kind of timid and maybe even too careful sometimes. Give your teenager a few months, and they'll have the same terrible, annoying driving habits as the rest of us.

A new study found the average person starts adopting bad driving habits about 10 weeks after they get their license. About two-and-a-half months in. Here are eight habits, and how long it takes before we start doing them:

  1. Giving up on gripping the wheel at "10 and 2" – 3 months and 15 days in.
  2. Not always wearing your seat belt – 3 months and 18 days.
  3. Forgetting to check your mirrors when you change lanes – 3 months and 21 days.
  4. Not using turn signals – 4 months and 12 days.
  5. Tailgating – 4 months and 15 days.
  6. Riding in the left lane when people need to pass – 4 months and 18 days.
  7. Cutting people off – 5 months and 3 days.
  8. Running red lights – 5 months and 6 days.
