25 around a corner? Ok, I know that's fast for a corner but you were going the legal speed, unless the speed limit was 15 which I doubt.

same thing happened to me, my tires didnt have much tread left, it was cold and frosty night and i had just been out wiht my friends so i was feeling pretty cocky. i went around the bend to go down the hill to my house. took the corner at about 30 and pulled a 180, as exciting as this was i soon get a call on my cell cause i sure as hell didnt go home after that to come home and give my dad the keys, he had been out back in the hot tub and seen the whole thing, sad night, but i got em back the next day so it worked out.

25 ? what kind of corner was it ? try telling him that you are sorry and that it wont happen again.


my mom complains about me driving too fast through my neighborhood all the time. also about me entering my driveway at like 20+ because there is a dip and the front of my car almost hits every time. i gotta practice driving slower.

my mom was just yelling at me with driving "too fast" and taking corners "too fast". I had an eye examine, and she had to come, so i drove us in her A6. I took turns like I usually do, but even slower since i was with her. I don't ever want to drive when she is in the car again. I can't stand doing a granny turn. The weird thing is that my mom drives quite quick herself, or at least she used to before i could drive myself.

my parents also complain about me driving too fast down the residential street. i guess 25-30 is a little too fast, cant help it sometimes.

yeah, I've been pulled over enough...lost my lisence for 3 months for doing 110 in a 50 (racist cop, no joke, wasn't even his jursidiction). I was only going about 85, it was an open farm area road with no inhabitation. Bullshit really.

I used to get the same shit from my parents about driving way to fast. Fuck it, my insurance is still cheap some how. My dad yells at me for always driving too fast, however I had to follow him to a motorcycle dealer to pick him up and he punched it and we were doing 80 in a 45, very busy road with a lot of traffic. Being he had a bike with an engine as big as my 318i, I couldn't keep up. I was like, "Damn dad, you trying to get me to lose my lisence again?" Before I lost my Ls, I was always punching it, trying to get a top speed. Topped at 122 in my old Integra. But since losing it, I have only pinned at a 100 a couple times in my BMW. My dad was saying how he's had it at 120 a couple times when he drove it. Damn hypocrit.

I only have 2 points left on my licensce.....till about October or something...

I'm so screwed. I drive crazy slow. Everyone passes me. It feels so gay, but I'm just not interested in loosing my liscence and going back to that DMV bullshit again and pass the test. I hate that place and it's cesspool of employees..

HATE!

I'll call this the summer of cruising. I bet I'm gonna get pulled over cuz someone will think I'm up to something driving all slow and shit.

ugh....

got a story from today... not related to speeding, but an "event"

i had to drop off my aunt at the airport (she was over for a visit from Austria), and of course my mom came along. we took the bimmer, i drove. after she left, we walked down to the car... an empty spot to my right side.

as i was about to back up, this Expedition comes into the spot. what's even worse, an old lady driving it, she cant see behind the wheel, and she is over into my spot. her rear wheel is 2 inches away from mine. and she wants to get out, but finally figures out she cant. now i am trying to back out, but it's no easy task. no matter where i want to go, she is there, and i am afraid of having my mirror and door scrape against her door (didnt remember the folding mirror thing...).

so i get out of the car, pissed off by now because i cant get out (i remembered the little "thx for parking so close thing... leave a can opener, and i almost burst out laughing... didnt though. i get out to see if there is freaking way to get out, and she gives me this weird look like i was the one taking up half of her spot, not vice versa. plus she wants to open her door (has it cracked).

i started yelling and cursing as hard as i could, got back in the car and somehow backed out... i was so mad that i started going towards the entrance instead of exit of the parking lot, then had to turn around only to see her dipshit husband backing the f*** expedition into the row of parking spots behind the one she was in... WHERE THERE IS NO CARS.

now why in the hell did she really want to park next to my car where she cant even fit is really beyond me. i am just glad she didnt scrape across my right rear, because i would have strangled her to death.

then my mom gave me a speech on how i need to calm down... bla.

damn i wrote a story.....someone
