My Accidents

Spinout 1 (1995)

I was in my 82 Civic Hatchback Si. I was driving on the freeway in the snow for the first time. Being from Southern California I had not seen that before. I had some experience driving when there was snow on the sides of the road but not directly on it. I was following a car ahead of me at about 80 mph. Suddenly the road ahead was not plowed. I reached some solid snow and I began to spin out. Before I knew it I had done almost a 360 and my car was off on the right shoulder when previous I was in the fast lane. Luckily there were no cars around to bounce off of. Very quickly a female (hot for once) Michigan State Trooper came to see if I was ok. They were at an accident on the other side of the road up a little ways. She called a tow truck and he towed me back off the shoulder. I was almost on the road but I wasn’t strong enough to push my car out of the ditch. He had to use a wench to get it out and I saw that I probably couldn’t have pushed it. For some reason the guy only wanted cash and wouldn’t take credit card. I didn’t have an ATM card so he had to drive me back and I had to borrow some cash. No damage to the car.

Spinout 2 (1997)

I was driving in the same POS 82 Civic in the Rain with Skullder. Needed tires? I was going around a corner in the Fast Track lane (about 6 lanes going my direction on my Luckily (or God’s help) there were no other cars around to hit or to hit me so I quickly got off the road onto the left shoulder. Normally there are tons of cars there so I coulda have bought the farm easily. I discovered I had a flat tire. I started to fix it (in the rain with no jacket) when a 91 Express Lane Tow Truck showed up. He had a nice jack and quickly fixed my tire for me for free. I had a full sized spare so it wasn’t a bitch to drive home. Since then I’ve been pretty afraid to drive in the rain. While previous I drove about 95 mph in solid rain now I drive about the speed limit or below. Maybe I’m being puss but maybe I’m not. I don’t know which. Seeing how many accidents, one day I counted 11 in the rain in Southern California, maybe it’s the way to go.

First Real Accident (Rear Ended)(March, 2001)

My dad’s been in tons of accidents all involving someone else hitting him but so far I had not been in any accident. I drove 10 years ithout being in an accident. I was sitting at a stop light when I saw a late 90s, Honda Accord driving at me fast from the rear. I thought there’s no way they are going to stop and unfortunately I was right. They plowed into the back of my new perfect condition car. I wasn’t hurt and neither were they (unfortunately) and I went back to see how bad they screwed me over. There was white streaks all over my bumper and there was places where the paint was rubbed off but it wasn’t that bad. I thought it would be much worse considering how hard they hit. Their car looked ok too besides being scratched up. An Asian girl and guy were driving. They were about college kid age. This was in Irvine where the University of Irvine is located. That college is 95% Asian, and 90% Honda Accord/Civic/Acura Integra so the chances of hitting another Honda were pretty good. The idiots kept saying sorry and they were so f-ing clueless. I was a cool customer and treated it like business with 0 emotion. This was on a road where the speed limit is 50 mph and people go about 70 mph and they were walking into the middle lane (we were in the fast lane). I told them to follow me and I drove to a shopping center parking lot. I took down their information and gave them mine. They didn’t want me to call their insurance and I thought that was the best thing to do. What I didn’t realize is they hit me so I should rat them out, you only don’t call when you hit them and you try to convince them not to report you. I did not call the cops. I probably should have but I didn’t have a phone. I think what should have happened is I had a cell phone and left my car in the middle of the road until the cops came and took a report. After talking to my dad and people on my page everyone recommended calling my Insurance. As it turned out I had to rent a car for 3-4 days while my car was being repaired. For a few scratches and my bumper being knocked off it cost $660+. It was also $100+ for the car rental so I know now that those morons would have never paid that, and paid it so fast. Their insurance paid for it. So I’m glad I ratted them out and I hope their insurance goes up. I’m only said the police didn’t put something on their record too. While everyone makes mistakes plowing into the back of someone at a stop light is just sad driving. Learn how to drive shitheads.

Second Accident (Rear Ended)(2001)

Same car, same year. I’m sitting at a light. This idiot doesn’t stop and plows into the back. He asked to exchange info but I said forget it. I got really mad and drove off. I figured since I got hit 2 times in a row from the rear in the same car that the next person to hit me would pay for that guy. And guess what.

Third Accident (Rear Ended)(2001)

The same f-ing car. The same situation. I’m sitting at a light and some idiot plows into the back. This time it was some fresh off the boat Asians who could barely speak English in a Honda Accord. I could see them coming to hit me the whole way. Oh here they’re going to ram me. It’s coming, it’s coming. Then they hit me. If they were going faster, I would have ran out of the car. So I got their info and make these idiots pay for the last idiot, just like I predicted. Do things come in threes? Was there something special about my car, BLUE car that made it invisible? How could 3 people in a single year ram into the back of it at a stop light? How is that even possible?

I’ve now driven in a different car since 2003 and no one has rammed me in the back. Maybe it was something strange about the Civic Si’s rear.

      Hey, I'm stuck in CA driving with these idiots all the time. But you can't complain if you're from TX about CA drivers, although it is the only TX place I have been, Houston drivers are just as bad.

      Asian Drivers
      Parker must be Asian...."they drives suck"?

      WHY? Because 90% of them are MEXICANS. Majority of them dont have a license and carry fake id. Its their culture thats how they drive.
    • Ophelia on:
      The way I see it, at least in Los Angeles (and San Diego--the other counties of California I've been in have it far less pronounced than these two), a lot of the problems seen on the roads can be attributed to a culture that places great value on speed. Essentially, people in L.A and S.D. are trained from an early age to have their gratification instant, and thus they never learn patience. This is why drivers will speed up to block you when you want to change lanes, this is why tailgating is so rampant, this is why they rarely ever come to a complete stop at stop signs, and this is why there's so much lane-weaving: These are drivers who want to go fast and see slowing down or stopping as an admission of inferiority. For the record, people blocking to stop me when I'm changing lanes is an extremely common occurrence that I figured out a good way to ensure you can get into the lane you need fairly quickly: As long as the traffic is not too congested, just slow down by about 5 miles per hour and get in behind them. The driver trying to block you is doing so either because they're not paying attention, or they cannot stand the thought of someone coming over in front of them. In both cases, they will gladly let you in behind them. (Congestion creates a problem because it means there will be someone else behind them who will think the same thing, and the person behind them likewise, and so forth.) It is an animal instict at work. For most creatures, seeing another creature with their back turned to them indicates the back-turned creature has superior authority. Likewise, a creature taking up a space behind another creature is an act of submission. For some reason, Californian drivers fall to these animal instincts and treat their cars as extensions of themselves. They don't want you getting into their lane in front of them because, subconsciously, they interpret it as you asserting authority over them, but they'll let you in behind them because they see it as you acknowledging their superiority. That's what I think.

      That's exactly it. It's the attitude of it's ME me me and the whole world doesn't exist besides me.

      California people tailgate because there's so many damn people, if you didn't, the line of cars would stretch from MEXICO to Oregon. They added 800,000 illegal alien drivers the other year. So that's why. As long as they are not crazy close which I define as you can't even see their headliights behind you. Otherwise, that's how close people drive in RUSH hour. Otherwise, in normal conditions, they're just tailgating and being aholes if it's not rush hour.
    • floyd on:
      Why do Los Angeles driver tailgate, I was coming home on the 60 fwy west bound traffic was almost at a stop and this female person in a infinite climb on my bumper so close I could not see her front plate in my rear view camera I got over then she cut me off and flip me off this was a accident waiting to happen and she ended up on the same off ramp on the 10 fwy west. crazy
    • John Carter on:
      The CORE reason that California drivers have become (Yes! They were once exemplary drivers!) the worst dang drivers in the country; ATTTITUDE! Many people in California have become extremely selfish, arrogant, rude, and just plain INCONSIDERATE. And it shows clearly in the way they drive. It is a "Me, me, me" attitude that explains why they tailgate and drive as fast as their vehicle will go, with no regard to the safety of themselves or others; they steal the legal right-of-way of as many other drivers that they can; and they will never lower their high-beams, no matter whom they blind! I was born and raised in California, and I used to love it. Now I cannot wait to leave!
    • John Carter on:
      It is the result of the pervasive entitlement attitude that has swept over California (I too am a native)! This selfish and inconsiderate attitude reflects clearly in the driving habits of so many people in California.
    • John Carter on:
      You are absolutely correct! I live here (in Calif) and I completely agree and sympathize with you!

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.
