    I've had my license for about 2 and a half years now, and within the first 6 months of getting my license I managed to scrape almost the entire left side (not the driver's side- I'm in Australia) of my car on a knee-length post at a petrol station that I somehow just did not see...

    Though I live just a few miles from civilization, I'm surrounded by dense woods and farms.  One afternoon, while driving my car, a deer decided to play chicken with me and ran into the road.  I was only going about 40 mph, but when he hit the radiator, he did a...

    Was Sandwiched Between Two Cars

    I was driving to school, playing some music relatively loud. I was running a little late, and as some of you know, leaving 5 minutes later than usual can lead to pretty bad traffic, even though I live pretty close to school. I was going 25, maybe 30 (on a street posted 25 mph...

    On Saturday

    I hit a median/curb. i cracked a pan thing and got a flat tire. Does it count as a crash? I was able to drive away haha but then had to get it towed. My neighbor/mechanic was sure that i was drunk. I was not. I just haven't been in this world lately.
