everyone's been crashing their cars and being involved in all kinds of tickets. after seeing quite a few of these kinds of posts popping up in the last few weeks. it makes me wonder what kidna driving record everyone here has.

so, spill 'em:
things from dinging someones fender with your car door, to a rear-end tapping, to wrapping your car around your neighbor's tree, from going infinity in a 25, to a 32-car pile-up. tell us your story/ies.

____________________________________
-when i was 15 and still had my temps, i was rear-ended while coming off an offramp. - not my fault
-at age 16, i backed into my buddies neighbor's cavy and caused some very minor damage to both cars - my fault (obviously)
-when i was 17, an old lady backed into my passenger door and tried blaming me for it. i was at a stop light and she was backing out of a parking spot - how is THAT my fault!?
-when i was 17, still (it was a big year for me), a woman slowed to make a LH turn, changed her mind and made a RH turn w/o signaling and crashing into my diverside (more details & pics, go to my cardomain page). - not my fault, but had to go to court, i hate court: court sucks.
-at age 18, i got my first (and only [knock on wood]) speeding ticket for going 77 in a 65. i paid $89 to the city of Huron.

good times.... 8)

Here's my rap sheet:

16: Backed my mom's Saturn into a pole.
16: Back my mom's Saturn into a different pole 3 days later.
17: Backed my Escort into a Saturn and shattered the thing's doors, smudged up my rear bumper. (Fixed.)
17: Ran into an old lady in a Lincoln Town Car. (No damage.)
18: Got backed into by a Jeep Cherokee. (Hit and run, not fixed ever.)
18: Lost control in my subdivision doing 65-70 because of loose gravel. (Common excuse but it was true.) Shattered a wooden mailbox and tore up their yard. (Negligable damage.)
19: Had a 2 mile an hour collision with my dad's pickup truck while it was parket, nicked the paint on my fender.
20: Smashed into a Sunfire doing 40 mph, 99.9% sure it was their fault. Details in another post, not writing it out again. :p

-No tickets 8)
-The scorts been rear ended 3 times, 2 times when my dad owned it, and once by me in a parking lot backing into a space (if I had looked better, buddy was half in my space). Buffued out each time :wink:
-Once in a company truck, it was in the middle of a winter storm and I had a 15kw generator strapped to the deck of an f550. Went to make a right turn and the truck didn't make it over the 2ft of snow that had been plowed from the road. Eventually made it over, but the snow directed me to a temporary construction fence. Put a small dent in the bumper, and knocked the license plate off.

There's also been a long list of close calls, but that's another story. Let's just say that's where playing around with your car in an ice covered parking lot pays off :wink:

I recently got one ticket for not having a front license plate.

It was that that made me say fcsk driving... so I stopped dumping money in my piece of crap car and I got back into mountain biking. All I gotta say is that if they could give tickets for biking, I'd be doing time :D

Tickets...keep in mind all of these were in my Geo... lol
September 2000- Just left speedway, got nabbed doing 53 in a 35. Ticket.
October 2000- Was just driving around, got nabbed doing 40 in a 25. Ticket. (it was like 9:30 at night on a school night, no kids were out)
January 2001- trying to keep the a*hole from getting around me after he was tailgating me, got nabbed doing 62 in a 35 (it had just went down from 45 a few blocks back...cop knew exactly where to sit). Ticket plus a reckless driving charge. Had to appear in Court in mid February. Got sentenced to do a Defensive Driving class and if I had no tickets in the next year (to Feb 02) the ticket would no longer appear on my record. Which I did and passed.

Accidents- hurt the minivan, totalled the Geo
April 1999- going out to work at the Mall with a friend, a Jimmy pulled out in front of me and I nailed his bumper with the whole front side of my moms Lumina APV. Not my fault as I had the right of way.
October 2001- just got some groceries and pop and on my way home I pulled into an S10 and totalled my Geo. ALllllllllll my fault...

A few weeks ago I accidently backed into this old EFI Ford pickup on a delivery in my Si...no damage, nobody knows I hit it but me... 8)

The only two things still showing on my record are hte sept and oct 00 Tickets. I have no points towards my license though.


I don't really street race anymore, the last time I gunned it next to a car was out on the highway with no traffic around us...city racing is stupid IMO anymore. I've settled down quite a bit.

I got a ticket for 58 in a 45 last year. The Rotas/Sumitomos had been on the car for about 2 weeks and I'd left a friend's house without turning my radar detector on. As I pulled onto the highway I pretty much went up through 4th gear with her floored and then dove through a dead-man's curve at a little over 60mph. As I came through the turn and came into the city limits (35mph citywide) I slowed down to the speed limit and saw the blue lights racing down the hill behind me. Apparently the cop was sitting in a pull-off right before the curve and I flew right by him at WOT. If I hadn't slowed down and taken a side road (which I was thinking about doing for fun, but decided to be responsible... hehe, how ironic!), he never would have seen me by the time he got around the curve.. heh. BTW: there was NO other traffic on the road. I later got the ticket reduced to improper equipment.

Last fall I was driving on a 25mph residential road with road-humps. I went slowly over the first hump (because it was built badly and the H&Rs are stiff).. accelerated away casually and then slowed for the second hump. The officer informed me that I'd been going 38mph between the humps. Needless to say, I was shocked. I realized later that I probably had been going that fast and that I'd just been that inattentative. This ticket was also dropped to improper equipment after taking a 'defensive driving' course.

Those have been my only tickets and I don't plan on getting any more.

I turned 24 last month.
