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.

      OMG - I haven't laughed so hard in a long, long time!! This was brilliant, JDP 2005!! I realize it's from 2014 ... I'm only now seeing it. Loved it!! Totally relate to all!

      Hey, I'm liberal, but I'm an intelligent, east-coast liberal who moved here and I agree with everything you posted except the liberal part ... they are mostly mindless morons - but this goes beyond politics. I too have driven in just about every state in the Union and overseas. Although most states have their fair share of asshole drivers who have many of the bad habits listed above (FL especially), CA seems to have them ALL, and then some!! Ugh.

      I wish that Cali drivers would stay in California and not come to Las Vegas, Nevada! They are some of the worst drivers I have seen and generally make driving on the I-15 miserable. They seem to think that the speed limit signs don't apply to them. When they leave Vegas and head South on I-15 they jam and back up the Interstate near Primm for hours because all these morons all leave at the same time on Sunday. When it gets backed up they act like the emergency lane is their own private express lane and utilize it illegally. Truth be known, here in Las Vegas we hate people who come here from California. Do us a favor, stay where you are and don't come here. Trust me, we think of you as the a-holes you are.

      In my area Subaru drivers and Honda drivers are the worst.

      In Oregon it's the California drivers and tourists that drive me insane, like no, it's not OK to drive slowly in the left lane when there is only two lanes.and one lane is pilled up with semi trucks, My town has been invaded with s.Californians and have ruined the driving experience. They'll stop in the middle,soft he road to take pictures of deer. They'll take up literally every parking spot down town, cut you off on the freeway even though no on is behind you. Use their phones because they for some reason think it's legal in Oregon, as if we are that backwards and behind in times. Text and drive. And drive like complete a holes because they can't figure out how to bet around in a small town where literally every road gets you where you need to go.

      THANK YOU!! I couldn't agree with you more! I just moved here from Kirkland, WA last July and I'm already thinking about moving back. I'm already sick of all the people here in California that have such self entitlement attitudes and such disregard for life they think the traffic laws don't apply to them. Since I've been here I've almost been in several accidents and almost been run over in a crosswalk but these people don't care! They are reckless A$$holes!!
    • Laura on:
      Totally agree!! I moved here not even a year ago and I'm already thinking about moving back!

      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.

    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.
