I was so lucky yesterday...
I should have known better. My brother already warned me when he got back from late shift that the constant rain had made the roads quite slippery and that my rear tires aren't good anymore. He said he swerved a bit on the way home when accelerating.
Anyways, it was about midnight and I was late getting to the club to meet my friends, plus I hadn't driven my car in 3 weeks so I didn't exactly pay heed to his warning. When I was in town, I was waiting behind a ricer Golf II in the turn-left lane. When the light turned green, he turned and then got on the middle lane. I accelerated to also turn and then overtake him, and then it happened: Just as I was half over the intersection, not going quick but accelerating, I aquaplaned. The rear insantly swerved out of control. I was heading straight towards the car at the opposite lane, so I took her back round, oversteering, the rear still pretty much out of control, now drifting towards the wall and the pavement on the right side. Thanks god I have such good brakes on my car and I wasn't that fast. I was able to break just inches before ripping of my front spoiler at the high curb. Also I was lucky that there were no other cars driving behind me.
Well, I got a little shock right there...
I instantly drove off because I didn't want anyone to write down my plates or something, but I was still shaken an hour later.
The guys in the fart can Golf must have thought I'm a complete moron.
Next time I'm gonna think twice before acting like a dumbass on the road. And I should probably get new tires.
