    Oh accidents are always a mess. I believe in consent, even back then ( haven't driven like that in decades) and never drove like that with someone who didn't want to always too young to make that kind of decision

    Oh, I've taken my share of high speed jaunts, but in nearly 45 years behind the wheel I've only had 3 accidents, (none my fault nor speed related) and 3 traffic citations, (2 speeding, 1 illegal lane change). All, accidents and tickets, when I was in my 20's. Not that I stopped putting the pedal to the metal once I hit 30, just got better at spotting unmarked Police cruisers.:cool:

    Ah, but the eyesight and reflexes are not what they use to be, so I'm quite the cautious motorist these days. Easy when your everyday car is 54 years old and more tired than you are....;)

    I suppose I've been lucky, most of my accidents have been my fault!

    Let's see. T-boned by a Greyhound bus on the Parkway. Sideswiped by an 18-wheeler on I-95 and rear-ended by a Hyundai while waiting for a red light. Walked away from the first two without a scratch. Suffered a permanently twisted spine from the last, which was a relatively low speed collision compared to the other two.o_O

    Timing is everything....

    2 Woman tried to steal almost $2,000 worth of electronics from Target at the same time 15 armed Police Officers were in the store helping disadvantaged youth pick out Christmas presents for their families. The duo never even made it to the parking lot...LOL!:D
