Now I'm 16 and a lot of the Pit is teenagers, so I figure there's quite a few young drivers out here. So share some of your experiences and mistakes with me.

Now I try to drive safe and I've never had an accident, but once I flat out ran a stop sign at a Y intersection at full speed. Sucks thinking what could've happened if there was a car, but I was hilariously looking both ways and saw no cars, I just didn't realize the sign was for my side of the Y.

And yes I am one of those guys who tries to obey all the laws and rules regarding driving.

One time it seemed like I cut this guy off in town during heavy traffic, because I changed lanes fast without blinking, but due to the one way nature of the road I was on. (Sidenote: Screw non-blinkers!!1) I should've been the only one moving in the intersection because I had a green arrow. Although it could've been someone else's horn, so I have no idea.He just appeared behind me and I heard a horn.

I drive a bright Yellow '03 Toyata Celica GT-S, which is famous for being the one with the big ass wing. So kinda attract a lot of attention in my sexy coupe.

Share stories, commence!

My license allows me to drive by myself, but with no one else under 18 who isn't family. I have to have my license for 6 months to drive with one passenger my age, and I'm almost there. I gain another passenger every 6 months until I'm 18. Then I can carry however many I want. I also have a curfew between 12 am and 6 am until I'm 18, which is a retarded law if you ask me. It's to prevent "Gang activities" or something.

I constantly think that traffic lights are red when they are actually green.

been driving for 5 years now.

I'm getting better about covering my **** ups now though. Like I'll turn to take an alternate route.

But yeah. Also didn't turn right on red for like 2 years after I got my license.

I never really had any problems, but the first time my mother took me on a highway, which I was not use to, I was stuck behind an 18 wheeler going up a hill so I put my blinker on to pass him and apparently another car had the same idea, I almost hit him because I didn't check my mirrors =/ Other than that I don't think I've had any problems

Worst thing I ever did was backing up into my dad's friends van. There was no visible damage and so I sped off. Also, during a pretty bad winter storm I was going too fast and I went straight through a stoplight that was red, and drifted into the curb while somehow not getting hit by 30 cars. Was scared to drive for like a month after that

The only trouble I've had was when I was exiting a freeway at the speed limit, like 35 mph, it was a long offramp that divulged into two lanes. I was already drifting towards the left lane, and signaled. As I pulled in, the guy behind me sped up, and was going at least 50, almost clipped the back of my car, luckily I swerved out of the way.

I parked in a parking space, and my mom was yelling at me about something, and i went to go back up a little bit but forgot to put it in reverse... Lol hit the damn lamp post.. >_<

Edit: i forgot to put it in reverse, so i pressed the gas and went forward instead right into the damn lamp post... Lol, that makes better sense..

I oversteered to a degree that involved crossing over a median strip, across the wrong side of the road, up onto a grassed footpath sort of thing (wasn't actually in a footpath. Not in town or anything) and almost into a storm drain.

That was the first time I ever went driving. It was the classic "Throw the kid in and watch him swim."

I swam at 20k's an hour in 60 zones and managed to almost sink in a storm drain.

Great first time.

I once reversed into the wrong side of the road when my driving instructor was in the car. He was not pleased. I've also been close to reversing into a tree, ditch, other cars etc. Sometimes I really drive like a woman.

I'm super cautious when driving, so I haven't had many problems. I pulled out infront of some lady once when I was driving for the first time in a big city. My first middle finger, woohoo.

I was driving on a back road near some woods in the winter and seeing around the curves was pretty difficult. It didn't look icy but as I rounded a corner, I saw a van and had to break so I wouldn't hit it.

He stopped quickly and I slammed the breaks. I slid on the ice away from him toward a snow bank, then toward him, then away again but this time my car did a 180 and kept going forward (now backwards to me) until I was going in reverse right up beside his car. My car stopped so that we were parallel and he rolled down, face aghast and asked if I was okay.

I said "Yup. You?" Then drove off in the wrong direction like I had planned it. No damage or collision or anything.

The first time I drove was in my uncle's car and he's really tall so he lowered the seat and I couldn't get it back up so I had to sit on a little box and I was scared I was going to fall off the box the whole time And on the way home a bunch of horses ran across the road right in front of us and I drove into a field. But nothing disastrous has happened so far.

I still need to get my license though

Haha, speaking of winter storms, here in Gerogia, last winter there was a really big (Strong? Powerful?) Double or triplle freeze were huge areas got covered in 2 or 3 layers of rock solid ice. You can see how in Georgia (Specifically, Atlanta) where people already can't drive, things would dangerous in the super ice, because it rarely freezes down here.

It was rediculous. I'd never seen anything like it. It was piled like 3 inches from the ground and you could stand on it without cracking it, so it was like an ice skating rink, just freaking everywhere.

My dad, who is an Air taffic controller, was forced to stay overnight at work, and then work overtime the next day, because A they thought odds were good that he would wreck on the way home, and B because lots of people had wrecked trying to get there and they need to have a minimum number of people talking to planes and junk.

As a side note, I don't get all the cynicism and distrust for Air Traffic Controllers these days... You'd sleep during a midnight shift if you had to work a different shift every ****ing day! Most of the time there's NO. DAMN. PLANES. flying during a midnight shift anyways, so they might as well sleep or watch movies!

I was pretty lucky when I was learning, I did some sketchy things that could have caused accidents but nothing bad really happened. Worst thing I've done is just tap a car when parking on a city curb. No damage or scratches, just taped license plates.

I didn't know that the car would still move if I wasn't pressing the gas pedal, so I basically floored it my first time driving.

In my first week of driving, I was going along a dual carriage way in the outside lane. I checked my blind spot over my left shoulder and when I turned around again I was half on the central reservation headed straight for a lamppost. I swerved and avoided it but it was very scary.

East Asian, to be specific. Them f*ckers CAN NOT drive. The Indians and bangladeshis, etc. are decent drivers, they drive all of our taxis but for some reason, Chinese people cannot drive for shit. It's ridiculous. My Chinese friend told me that it's because there are no traffic laws in china, just "guidelines".

Also a deer ran across the road in front of me for the first time Saturday. I didn't even have to slow down, so I guess it had stopped and looked both ways before hauling ass across the road. My dad, whom I was talking to sounding like he had shat brix tho. What he did basically equated to squealing and pointing at it. Real helpful.

Funnily enough, we actually continued our conversation and 10 minutes later, I was like "So, did you see that deer?" "Yup" "Cuz I totally saw it"

I've been actually been driving since I was 12, small town, but I've never had any accidents, hit anything, or tickets. I've driven full size trucks, vans, small cars, with trailers, pretty much anything you can drive without a special license since I only got my G2's (Full license soon) The way I see it, if you don't panic, keep a calm mindset, and pay attention to your surroundings you'll be fine. The only thing I worry about since I moved up to a city is the other GOD AWEFUL drivers. The big thing I have to watch for is other peoples' driving

Went to pull out of a park without looking and just as I did a car went zooming past me. A second later and I probably would have spun out the guy with the flick of a wrist, I LOLed.

The worst on my side would have to a few weeks ago while i was having an arguement with a passenger. Sped through a red light (accidentally) and was quickly stopped by local traffic police who insisted on taking me for drug tests. After a huge debate they settled on a R1500 fine (approx. $120). Could have been worse?

I refuse to let anyone who just got their G2 (Ontario's first license that lets you drive alone) drive me anywhere. Too many hot shot drivers and near-death experiences for me. I was no exception (except that I wasn't a hot shot... I just sucked at driving haha) - I definitely caused a few people to lose a few years learning to drive.

I've never noticed the race of drivers until I was almost ran off the free way by a small grey coupe. After I got around and sped up, I was met with the sardonic realization of race. She was asian.

Agreed. I hate the fact all drivers roughly my age get generalized as that too. I've had people just say that about me without actually ever being in a vehicle with me.

I was fixing to pull out of a post office and a mail box was blocking the view so I was about to go without looking, like a fag, but I stopped and looked, and sure enough, there was a car that would've hit me, or have had to avoid me. It's the little things that make driving safer for everybody.

the first day I had my license I started going into a ditch, so I over corrected and I ended up doing a 360 in the middle of the road going about 50 mph. Amazingly I pulled it off and drove away.
