And driving down a really long and steep hill with a twisty road, with your brakes constantly on, will result in overheating and smoke. Yes, you are the one on fire, it's not me. And big, grey clouds wafting up from your vehicle and around your car should be a really good indicator that you need to stop. And when you finally do stop, getting out and pouring really cold water over your brakes is a VERY bad idea. This is why you are now waiting for a tow truck.
I almost got myself into a ditch on Sunday. Turning off the Autobahn the same exit I use almost everyday I just wasn?t concentrating and didn?t turn the wheel enough (yes, a real "stupid driver story" with me as the stoopid). I was looking at my fuel gauge and thinking about when to fill up, If it would be cheaper on monday or doing it that day ... and stuff like that. I realized that I was going to end up in the ditch just in time, but it was only few centimers that kept me on the road when doing about 60km/h in what is basically a corner. All because I felt too safe on a road I know very, very well and didn?t concentrate enough.
Running red lights
One seen when I was almost home on Sunday night. Red means stop dumbass, I don't think you even noticed just how close you came to cleaning up those two girls. One of them was so scared she was crying FFS. I went to see if they were alright and so did a woman who was parking her car nearby, thanks to whoever you were in the green Falcon for helping out!
I hate them. Deeply. Totally. Unconditionally. So much that I'd want to see red-lights-cameras enforced on EVERY light even if those things do annoy me greatly.
That's because you have to concentrate on seeing police and drop the phone before they see you.Holding the phone, on the other hand, is what's bloody dangerous, you can't possibly concentrate on the road while doing it.
