    Default Driving and type

    What are your driving habits? Fast? Slow? Careful? plenty of accidents and/or speeding tickets? Correlate to type...i'll go first.

    Fast driver. Regularly break the speed limit by a significant margin. Talk my way out of tickets easily. See other cars as stationary objects that can be passed, avoided, gone around etc.

    I always drive at the speed limit, but I accelerate quickly to get there. Always amusing if there's someone behind me who obviously thinks I'm a slow and steady sort. When I pull away from traffic lights, they're often left behind, clearly not expecting me to accelerate so quickly. The only reason I bother keeping to the speed limit is paranoia that the police would be nearby. Generally quite calm on the roads although if someone does something that forces me to brake sharply when it was their stupidity that caused it and not anything else, it angers me. I remember one time when I was angry anyway, and there seemed to be a large amount of idiots on the road that evening, a pedestrian forced me to brake sharply when I had right of way, which caused me to scream some rather colourful words at them, which got an amusing reaction from my two passengers at the time (well, amusing looking back on it, not really amusing for an observer. They were just saying things like "Calm down!" and all that, seemingly unnerved by my little explosion).

    But yes, provided I'm in a normal state of mind (i.e. not angry or depressed or whatever), I tend to be calm but assertive.

    Fast driving, passengers saying “slow down slow DOWN!!”. But I’m careful and a rather good driver. I enjoy driving and the car’s like an extension of my body, so I know my and the car’s limits, others obviously don’t otherwise they wouldn’t be freaking out on me every time they come along for a ride.

    I'm ISTp.

    somewhat reckless, unfortunately

    i tend to range anywhere from 10 mph over the speed limit to 10mph under the speed limit
    usually i'm rather careful,
    but sometimes it's like...like i'm running on autopilot or just not paying much attention to what's going on around me.
    other times i refuse to drive because i just can't seem to focus.

    in a stick, going uphill, i've been known to refuse to stop at a stop sign (depending on the steepness of the hill...lol, shoulda seen me in san francisco)
    hmmm, at that time in my life i did a lot of driving, mostly long distances. i learned to read while driving. I also learned to drive a stick shift with only one foot (other foot was sticking out the window catching some wind.....i was bored, sheesh)

    I tend to stick to a speed that I know I cannot be pulled over for (35 in a 30mph area). I'll accelerate fairly quickly up to that speed, and then level out. Yes, even if someone is trying to push me along, I'll rigidly stick to the same speed.

    Idiots do annoy me too. People that go 30mph in a 40mph stretch of road, someone going the wrong way down a one-way road deliberately, or people that sit at a junction when there is nothing coming. Those people will earn my ire.

    Recently slow and careful. Before that, fast and reckless. I've been in two wrecks, none of which were my fault. In my first one, on my 20th birthday, someone hit my parked car while I was at the movies. Then a few years ago someone T-boned me on my way to class.

    I drive as non-obviously as I can... always trying to just melt into the background (probably because theres pretty much always drugs of somekind in my car) very defensively. Never had an accident but many tickets for stupid shit like broken tail-lights and cosmetic stuff like that.

    I used to be reckless, very reckless. I had 20+ tickets before I turned 21. Speeding, failure to yield, playing the stereo too loud, etc... I had 5 wrecks before then also. All my fault. My old license plate in TN was BADDRVR (which you can find all over the internet after my focus blew up at the racetrack and caught on fire...lol) Through traffic schools, community service, and high insurance rates I've managed to keep a license. Then when I was 22 I got a ticket in Arizona that put me past my points as far as how many I could get in a year. i had to take what was called traffic survival school and it cost a few hundred bucks and took 2 days of class... it sucked. I was told by the state of AZ that if I got any type of moving violation within the next 2 years I'd lose my license for 3-5 years. So, I quit driving in ways that I would get caught. In a sense, I grew up. I quit streetracing, and started racing at the track, that got me into racing big time and I started going to track days etc... which then led me on to take a couple driving schools at Bondurant school of racing in phoenix (I even took a go-kart school for a weekend where we got to drive shifter carts that would do 0-100 in 4 seconds) . You learn A LOT about cars in general and all the physics that go into racing and realize that there's so much that the general population doesn't know so it's best to be on the lookout yourself.
    I've wrapped all my driving experience up into a little ball of being a good driver these days and have only recieved one ticket in the past 4 years and it was the first week I had my RX8... I hadn't been used to the fact that it likes to go much faster than most of my other cars...lol

    When i am by myself I tend to drive a tad more on the "fun" side of driving but when other people are in the car with me, unless i'm showing off..., then I do tend to drive much safer than most people I know.

    I am supposedly not a very good driver because I don't pay enough attention to driving. I also have a habit of driving over curbs when I'm parking the car.

    I curse at cars that block intersections and make me have to wait for the lights to change again, idiots who pull out into traffic to make people stop for them, a car in front of me that wants to wait for the road to be all clear for a mile before they'll pull out, etc... I even express great frustration when stop lights turn yellow/red. I always act like I'm in a huge hurry (even though I'm usually not since Peter's moved in cause he makes sure that I'm out the door 15 minutes before I actually need to be), and anything that wastes my time or makes me wait is extremely irritating. Peter says, "You know what I think you should do? I think you should swear some more. That'll help."

    I don't have a good sense of direction and I tend to get lost a lot in the city if I am not familiar with the area , but if I'm back tracking or if I drove the route before, I'm very good at remembering where to turn. Even if I drove somewhere out in the middle of nowhere for the first time during the day and have to drive back at night, I'll still be able to easily follow the return route.

    I tend to drive somewhat faster than the speed limit. I've got a few speeding tickets, almost only from cameras. On average perhaps once a year. I've never gotten any other kind of tickets. In Europe, I tend to take detours to drive through Germany as long as possible, even if the way is a bit longer, because the motorways there are often (but not always) free of speed limits. Then I go over 200 Km/h ie 165 mph whenever possible.

    When in intense traffic, though, I tend to drive carefully.

    i would not like you at all.

    i am a very calm, sometimes too calm, driver. i generally talk to myself and answer back while driving. i smoke cigarettes and change music and clothes easily. i have never had an auto accident although i did run into a large rock one time because it had fallen to the middle of the road. i dislike those who get excited while driving. my mother is that way. i am as careful as i need to be, for the most part. well, i did get one careless driving ticket. i guess i was drifting over the center line while daydreaming.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

Even if I drove somewhere out in the middle of nowhere for the first time during the day and have to drive back at night, I'll still be able to easily follow the return route.
    i would not like you at all.

    i am a very calm, sometimes too calm, driver. i generally talk to myself and answer back while driving. i smoke cigarettes and change music and clothes easily. i have never had an auto accident although i did run into a large rock one time because it had fallen to the middle of the road. i dislike those who get excited while driving. my mother is that way. i am as careful as i need to be, for the most part. well, i did get one careless driving ticket. i guess i was drifting over the center line while daydreaming.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    I speed frequently. I'm a cop magnet and would likely not possess a license if I had not gotten off on as many verbal warnings as I have. Despite my inattentiveness [I once got pulled over for riding a cop's tail, of all things] I have never been in an accident. My sense of direction is also poor and no matter what kind of map I have, I will never find a place unless someone is riding with me to show me the route. I really need to purchase a GPS system.

    I am fairly good on the road and drive INSANE... Ive stopped now because I cant afford the insurance...

    It was nice having a dad who could bail me out of certain situations , but I abused that...
    I have 3 tickets 2 for speeding and one for following a fire truck for the greens.

    Also 1 accident out of stupidity...

    Anyways Jessica you're probably a very good driver.

    SLI: Drives very well, doesnt respect rules, gets away with more than most but pushes the limits more than most. VERY aggressive. Enjoys the feeling of acceleration. Prefers manual to be more 'one' with the car.

    For me, it depends on how much I have going on. Lately I have been driving defensively and around the speed limit. But usually, because of all of the things that I do on a daily basis, I drive as much as I can get away with. As far as cops, I always spot them before they spot me, except for a few times.
