any moronic shit you've done on the road that haunts you?
>ran a stop sign in a neighborhood last year
>almost ran another that i didn't even see because it was unusually far from the absurdly wide ass road
>firetruck sees me about to run the stop sign and honks from the other street at the intersection
>police just a few blocks down on the same road miraculously didn't see me almost run the sign
I've also didn't use blinkers a few times when turning into a business with a car behind me angrily honking. I've also caught myself cruising in the left lane a bit in Texas because "left lane for passing" isn't a thing in my state. i was going 10 mph over he speed limit, but still. i pissed off a toyota 4runner driver who flashed me and gave me the bird for sitting in the left lane.

plz forgive my road sins.

    Doesn’t haunt me but it literally just happened today and it’s kinda funny.

    I have a fast ish car but it’s not my beater daily.

    Today on my way home from work I decided to floor my daily/beater,because I haven’t in such a long time, than immediately after it starts misfiring and I drive home without one of the cylinders.

    I used to be one of those people who would drive on the shoulder to avoid traffic

    >pass someone on a double yellow
    >this was going to a place with a security checkpoint
    >they hopped out of their car and started yelling at me
    >I was still a bit drunk from the morning
    >started yelling back at them
    >turns out it was an off duty cop
    >got a reckless citation
    >they called me later and said they weren't going to submit it

    >got a speeding ticklet
    >went to courthouse and paid it off
    >got another one not even 24hr later

    I don't drive crazy anymore but thinking of all the stupid shit I've done and how fast I used to drive I'm lucky I only got my license suspended once.

    • 2 weeks ago

      Question for you without judgement, cause you already know my opinion, but I'm always curious if you think you're smarter or better when doing shit like that?
      It's the same for people turning left in front of me when the light turns green. I pride myself on watching the other lights and memorizing light patterns, so when someone jumps me, especially if they go BEFORE green, I do feel a little cucked. Like, did you think you were a better smarter driver or what the frick was going through your head?

      I deal with this every day in Philly, Black folk drive up the shoulder on 34th with zero care in the world and one day I just wanna swerve into them and ruin their shit, tell the pigs I was breaking down and didn't expect anyone to be driving in the shoulder. Maybe I'll do that when I get my new car, just take someone out with me

      • 2 weeks ago

        I didn't really put any thought into it. I saw other people occasionally doing it so if they're doing it why shouldn't I? Afterall I can get home a bit faster. I would hop back into traffic with the mindset of "they'll either hit me or let me in". I never got hit. I just stopped doing it one day, I saw others doing it and instead of hoping behind them I thought "that's dumb, what if they get a flat or there's a cop" and I've never done it since. I've also tried to slow down a bit, sure speeding is great and all, but you don't really get anywhere quicker and getting into an accident and/or getting a ticket simply isn't worth the few seconds you could save. I'm also to the point now where I don't want to have to deal with extra shit and driving stupid means I may have to deal with extra shit, I can follow the speed limit, maybe go 5-10 over and I can just chill in the right lane and not have to worry about anything extra. I can get home and go back to doing nothing and being left alone which are my favorite things to do.

        • 2 weeks ago

          Honestly that makes me feel better to hear

        • 2 weeks ago

          I'm glad to hear you learned and changed from your past experiences. I can only hope that other drivers can also change and grow as people (I know they won't, but you give me a little more hope).

      • 2 weeks ago

        I drive on the shoulder in traffic and I don't think I'm smarter or better. It is obviously not that clever and also evil. I realize that the shoulder wouldn't be available for me to drive in if everyone did it, so I'm basically taking advantage of the fact that most people are generous and follow the rules in order to cheat and get a leg up on them. It just doesn't make me feel bad to do this. It actually makes me feel good to do it. I don't like other people so I enjoy taking advantage of them.

    I have a memory that haunts me from when I first got my license.

    >finish washing my prized classic car, the only reason why I was motivated to get a license in the first place
    >decide to air-dry it with a day out
    >get in, drive out onto the main stroad of town
    >speed up a little bit early because the water droplets weren't streaking off the windshield
    >while focusing on getting them to blow off, notice some movement in the corner of my eye
    >oh SHIT, someone is running into my lane through the zebra crossing
    >he sees me way too late, I see him way too late
    >swerve into the next lane over, not even checking to see if there's anyone next to or behind me
    >thank god there isn't, immediately slow down to 20 below the speed limit while I immediately panic over what could have happened if I didn't immediately throw the wheel sideways

    A few misplaced seconds and I legit would have killed a man. I think about this on a weekly basis if not more. I always check every lightless crosswalk now.

    • 2 weeks ago

      Sounds like he almost killed himself. Who runs into a lightless crosswalk without looking? What a moron

      • 2 weeks ago

        The opposite lane stopped to let him go which is why.

    I learned to drive last year (I'm almost 30) but didn't really understand how to merge in busy traffic. I turned on my blinker and went to merge left despite knowing someone was there but seemed far away enough. They were not. However, we did not collide but it was pretty startling. They got into the middle turn lane after that so we were safe. I still feel like an idiot.
    Another time around then I didn't yield to a pedestrian (mom and her kid) outside of target and I think they called me an butthole or something. I slowed down and they weren't motioning like they were gonna move so I thought I should move along. Guess I didn't interpret that correctly.

    few years ago, I bought a sex doll and thought it would be fun to put her in the passenger seat and get some silicone road head while night driving.
    A rather petite young looking doll.
    didn't get far after nutting before I saw the cop lights. start pulling over and dread flooding in. There is frick all to do in this town but people love to listen to the scanner for small town gossip. People are going to hear about this, everyone will know and my life will be over.
    Then he passes me.
    I stay on the shoulder as his lights vanish.
    I'm shaking. Didn't sleep that night.
    The next morning, I dismembered the doll and disposed of here over the next few days in different dumpsters.

    >drunk buddy invites me for a night ride
    >thinks it's a great idea to reach the top speed of his VW shitbox aircooled Golf in the main strip
    >run 3 or 4 red lights

    We could have t-boned and literally murdered someone. For some reason I didn't say a thing, though I was fully aware of how stupid and risky that was.

    I have caused a few accidents by not allowing double-yellow passers to merge, but they were guilty and deserved their fate.
    15 years driving a corporate fleet car with maximum insurance create some road justice warriors out there.

    Anons, don't underestimate the insanity of others out in the road, especially on fleet cars. Some of these drivers don't give an absolute frick about destroying their vehicles or getting involved in accidents.

    So yeah it was raining real hard and we were hoofing it on the 2-lane highway but after a bit the highway changed, 2-lanes became one on each side of the line going opposite ways (aka a regular road) so anyways I passed someone on a long downhill with a super long dashed line allowing passing, due to the rain the yellow line looked more white, and there were no other cars after the initial pass I’m alone hoofing it now going up the hill, still in the on-coming traffic lane because my brain was fried apparently and I forgot the road had changed so I thought I’m in the left lane of a 2-lane highway with white dashed lines when suddenly my wife pipes up “I think that’s enough” ZANG I immediately realize my mistake and get back into the proper lane right before a car comes flying by from over the hill… on the way back home that evening everyone in the car was asleep other than me driving and I kept thinking how fricked we would have been if I had screwed up like that and nobody had been awake to catch me

      goddamn. years ago i was in a skype conference with the rest of my team and i pulled an all nighter so i kept nodding off at my desk, thank frick my boss didn't care about cameras lol

    The other day I pulled up to a turning and for some reason I started pulling out without looking right. I checked my right halfway out onto the road and a van was heading straight towards me.

    So in Mehiko, it's common practice for cars/trucks traveling slowly to move over to the side, halfway on the shoulder, and use their signal on the OPPOSITE side to signal to drivers behind them that they're "cleared to pass"

    It's very common with semi truck drivers.
    This is not a thing in the US.

    My idiot brained self, trying to get to work one time when I was 17, was driving being a dump truck, traveling VERY SLOW on farm roads, but it was a double yellow, so I couldn't pass. The truck turns his LEFT signal on, and keeps it on for like a solid minute and a half.. I'm wondering, "wtf he doin?" because there's no driveway anywhere here, it's in the middle of nowhere, and it's a double yellow, so I can't pass him anyway.
    Then I think back to Meckshicco, and how truckers do it there, so I just assumed he was hispanic and was letting me "pass" because he knew he was going slow.

    As soon as the road straightens out, and the double yellow turns into dotted yellow, I gun it. It was safe and there were literally NO OTHER CARS around. At the EXACT SECOND I'm beside him, making a pass, he fricking TURNS LEFT towards a grassy driveway for an empty field, and I SWERVE my handmedown car away, and my left wheels touch the grass. I was lucky the car didn't go into the ditch, it just made a sick drift for a second, but I still shatted my self.

    Since then I just keep my distance away and respect truckers when driving, but I still speed, lol, just a little more carefully reading my surroundings.

    • 2 weeks ago

      you can pass a double yellow if the vehicle is a "road hazard" or nuisance, that would be a vehicle going 25mph in a 50 for example, less than 20mph in a 35 etc etc.
