• How Do You Rate Your Driving

I have the ego the size of a small moon, therefor I'm a driving god.
Average. I hit the curb with my hubcaps every now and then, and I've had my fair share of running stop signs/traffic lights :v:
I consider myself a safe driver when i'm driving with other people in the car, doing the speedlimit. As soon i'm alone though, i tend to drive faster, take corners way to fast ect. ect.

Bitches wish they could parallel park like me
I encountered a horrible driver yesterday while driving to the hospital. Just copying this from what I sent Bradley on Steam There was this huge roundabout with two lanes in it. I was going not the first right, but the second so I took the outer lane while some guy was driving in the inner lane. The guy in the inner lane were going out the same exit as I was just that he came from an even earlier entrance which is why he took the inner lane. As we encounter the exit we're aiming for, I turn on my signals and start driving out of the roundabout but as I'm doing that the other guy had crossed over to my lane and started honking and waving his fist at me. What the fuck would he have done if I didn't turn off the roundabout when I did, just zoomed across my lane [I]through[/I] my car or what? I though you weren't supposed to cross over a lane ever and at least give way for the people that are driving in it

In a tourist trap beach town full of pensylvanian drivers. words cannot describe.
I would rate myself as ever so slightly above average. I have good points and bad. Good: I can do long distance driving at ease, quite happy cruising on the motorway. I have driven family 4 hours down south (when others my age have never driven beyond 10 miles). I have coped well in bad situtations e.g. turning onto a pedestrian shopping road, having to join 70mph motorways from some random dirt track angled like a T Junction (the vertical line being the track, the horizonatal being the motorway), both incidents can be blamed on a Sat Nav. My teachers have trusted me to drive the remainder of our class that can't fit in the school bus out on trips (several times) I have reacted quickly in a variety of dangerous situations Bad: No sense direction Innability to perform manouvers, hit curbs, lamposts, wedging my car in a thin street and having to abandon it and get my friend who's better at parking, torn down the neighbours fence etc Sometimes get carried away on motorways. I flashed another driver in the fast lane to move over because he was going so slow. ...turned out I was doing 80+ and he was doing 70 (in a 70 speed limit) Felt really guilty. Hit a curb so hard driving into a space that a friend hit her head on back of the passenger seat (the worst in my opinion). Cut corners at junctions (intersections). As I say to my friends and family, [I]I can drive ...I just can't park when I get there.[/I]

I'd consider myself a decent driver. I'm still a new driver and my car has huge blind spots, so I've nicked it here and there, etc. I don't drive like a crazy asshole though.
i dodged a possum and kicked out real hard doriftuuu

Hoon by day, sensible driver by night. Because it's harder to spot cops at night, unless the roads are clear then i gun it. Drift everywhere once cars only got 1/4 tank left, because drive mainly around with nothing on the tray making the arse of the car very light. Fish tailin it just to get up hills.
Got my first ticket last night, pulled a huge u-turn on an empty road and as I turned around, I was facing a cop who had pulled up to the light and I was just like "FFFFFFUUUUU-" He was super nice though. Someone had jacked my 'N' sticker (You have to drive for 2 years with some restrictions like 1 passenger before you can get your full license), so all he gave me was a ticket for failing to display my 'N', which has no points on my record. I've yet to meet an asshole cop, and I feel bad for the people who hate cops.

I really like cops, actually.

He says he beats brand new Stangs' in a drag, not giving a name. I love cops, if I don't get accepted into any universities I plan on becoming one.
Only time i dont like cops is when they are on some high horse power trip/ giving you shit about things that dont matter
I admit, I'd probably be a douche Sergent Flathead type, just to ruin somebodies day.
I've managed to go 6 years without hitting anything, I've never been pulled over, I can parallel park just damn fine, I can drive stick, and I actually pay attention to the fucking road. Head and shoulders about your average soccer mom dipshit that thinks the steering wheel is a fancy, spinning dinner table, but nowhere near Stig level.
I'd say that I am above average but I'm entirely too confident. I cut corners, speed, and take racing lines any time I'm on back roads. And when I'm on my motorcycle I pass all the time even on bad roads for passing. Sometimes it really scares me that I'm going to do something stupid.
I'm ultra timid. I think it's because I'm scared of airbags.
