    At night ended up on the wrong side of the road on a duel carriageway at some traffic lights.

    I actually blame very poor road markings.

    I pulled out at a junction thinking i had time because there were cars turning... i got hit >.< haven't used that junction since, i never liked it to begin with.

    But since about 5-6 people at school have written off cars i didn't feel so bad with my dent. Although i do have to drive around with the dent still there.

    Yeah, a bit of it is a motorway now. I think that bit is called the A1M or something though.

    I accidentally mounted the pavement running around 20 pedestrians over, knocking a few lampposts over, swerving back into traffic smashing some poor sod off his bicycle, eating a burger on my mobile whilst getting a BJ and trying to change radio station. I then proceeded to crash through a car showroom setting off some sort of alarm and killing nine people I then somehow managed to find the road again and then totally screwed up a parallel park hitting many vehicles. I got road rage and told a elderly person I thought she was scum.

    That's the biggest mistake I ever done - Oh wait that was GTA

    :rofl: I think the worst thing I've done was scuffing my wheels on the kerb. And I was pissed off with myself for that, who knows what I would've been like if I'd done some of the things you guys have :p:

    On my first day of driving, I actually believed that the mirror nearest to me, showed accuratly the distance between me and the car in the right lane, pulled out, and nearly killed us all. That never happened again though, lol.
    what distance does it show? does it make things appear further away than they actually are, or nearer to u than they actually are?

    my excuse for asking this question : i'm still learning :p:

    They appear to be further away than they actually are. Old car wing mirrors used to have a translucent message on them saying:
    "Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear"
    Perhaps they should reinstate that

    Speeding excessively on the m6 just to see how fast my wee car with 2 passengers could go. Then when it was too late I saw a policeman on a bridge with a speedgun. I waited a few weeks for the ticket to come but it never did :O

    Lesson learnt anyway

    Hmmm, probably not checking my blind spot properly when changing lanes on a dual carriageway and nearly crashing into the car in that lane, or maybe forgetting to go into 1st gear when stopping on a hill, so smoke came out my car when I tried to move...I do wonder how I passed sometimes hehe.

    Well, I don't know, I don't drive - he said it was on the A3, is that a motorway? It's a bloody great road, anyhow

    Great as in big or as in fun to drive on? I personally can't stand the road, they've put a set of speed cameras up for every half kilometre or so. Night driving along it may as well be sending your license up the river.
