Really dumb reasons to crash!
I was at a girls party the other night, she had crashed her car a week earlier. She considers herself lucky to be alive, and why?
She was driving along on a 2 lane each way highway in the dark, no one around. Went off the road doing 100, span on grass up hill, and hit a tree fairly slowly, didnt write the car off but close.
The reason this happened was, well, she was trying to get a moth out of her window! Tried once, wouldnt go out, closed window, opened again, tried again, then off the road she went!
This could have been worse had there been a tree a bit closer to the road!
At the girls party, was another girl, who was on crutches, had a broken foot, hurt knee and many stitches on her face. She had crashed too. You think the 1st girls reason was bad, get this!
This one was driving along doing about 60, had a head on crash. The reason!? Well she sneezed!, and next thing she knew she was on the other side of the road and crashed badly. 2 other cars involved.
I just dont know what to say when i hear things like this, i just said to them you better concentrate. (I wanna give them lessons myself, show them how to correct from getting sideways, etc.) I think things like this is what kills people! Of course the Govt never mentions it(and would never find out for certain as it'd be impossible to prove) as there is no revenue in teaching young drivers how dangerous a car can be.
Why doesnt the licence process show people how easy it is to lose control at least? That should scare them into behaving and concentrating.
Of course they continue to tell us that speeding kills! (yeah right!never has, never will!) as there is easy revenue in it.
lets get sideways!!!
