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.

      So true!
    • Joey on:
      Why?
      They are the dumbest people in the ENTIRE world, and I have been all over the world. The driving is derived from a lawless state and group of people who watch politicians have no rules and laws, so therefore they follow suit, which so happens to be "Follow the leader" which is a whole other problem of unoriginal thoughts that these mindless zombies have. But here is the real problem... the want-to-be utopian nature of everything, from the "yoga" to the "eco friendly" to the "lgbt" to the "rainbow parade" and the list goes on and on and on where they can find any reason to micromanage and control your daily life through the brainwash that turned them into the "Let's turn you into an idiot too" mentality... Those specific reasons give the green light for ANYONE and I mean ANYONE to act like a complete mindless, narcissistic socipathic WACKJOB and get away with it free and clear. The driving is just a mirror image of what is going on in these entitled liberal lefty wackos minds who have NO CONCEPT of REALITY outside of the borders of California. 2+2= 4.5 to these idiots all day long, but to be quite frank, there is a possibility that these idiots are mentally lobotomized from the insane levels of fluoride in their public water supply which taints their consciousness to be a walking zombie, just my opinion. All the noise, cars with loud volumes, very mixed society, house on top of house, low income jobs, overpopulation, rudeness, constant drinking and partying everywhere, insanely loud neighbors... THIS IS WHY THESE PEOPLE ARE SO NUMB!!!! <-- Someone who finds great relief finding this website, thank you.

      or a better person... these are someone of the most ethically messed up people... with terrible intentions on purpose, and unfortunately if you call them out on it, they play dumb trying to make you question your own sanity. This state should float off far into the pacific. What a waste of human potential...

      I don't understand how these amazing people are so terrible driving a car!!! California drivers totally suck!!! DMV need to do something! :(
    • Your bad at driving too on:
      Why?
      You realize you're adding to the problem judging from your reactions to others incapable driving. I stopped reading because I know your one of the worst of them all and this is a hypocritical article. You should all have your licenses taken away.
    • BJ on:
      Why?
      I do not see hit and run accidents as much as anywhere in this country. Everyday morning, there are so many cases I see on the news.. Why???? If it rains, forget it... You think you have to drive 20 mph on the highway when you see a rain drop.... People drive in rain and snow all the time. I see that CA people are not used to drive with rain but at least try to learn instead of driving 20 mph and saying it is safer... Why don't you walk instead? It is much safer that way.
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      Why?
      I have lived in FL, AL, MA, MD, NJ, NY and now in CA. CA drivers are the worst among all the states I have lived. Therefore, I am trying to be very truthful and input with "Fact Base" here. I agree lots of things said above but there are some other things. 1. Turn Signal (Already Mentioned) I videotaped so many times because it really made me laugh and angry. I say 30% would be pretty high for people use blinkers. In other state, you get a ticket if you did not use blinkers. In SoCal, No one uses blinkers and it is ok. When they use it, it is not that you would like to let other drivers to know that you are changing the lane of making a turn. Lots of people do it in the middle of the turn. Why bother? 2. Texting People still text while driving and I see that everyday everywhere. When they do, I noticed that majority of them go 35mph on 50mph zone and causing traffic. PLEASE pull over, text and get back on the road. Stay away from your phone... 3. Traffic Light I see so many people in the front so far away from the line so that they do not even go over the sensor on the road. Another thing is you leave 2 school buses space between the car in front of you and your car. One light can make 10 cars pass but with this, only 4 get to go. I know CA people are very laid back, relaxed but come on... Let's move. If you are making turns, please use your blinkers before you get on the left or right lane, not after you get on the turning lane then turn the signal. When you are suddenly slowing down, people behind you do not know what you are doing. 4. Highway Driving It is called "Freeway" here in CA. I get it. But it doesn't mean you can go 50mph on the left lane causing traffic, people keep passing you on the right. If you would like to drive slow, it is your choice but do not cause a massive traffic or make other people to pass you on the right. There are other countries that left lane is specifically for passing and you will get a ticket if you hold up a traffic. It is a common sense. My 3 years of driving experience in CA has been nothing but nightmare... People just stop in the middle of the road without turning signal or any justification. I find it very selfish... I can't wait to get out of CA not to deal with driving. I have driven in most of States but CA makes the worst of all. It is a FACT....
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      Why?
      When you are on HOV lane or passing lane going 50 mph in 65 mph zone, cars passing within speed limit on your right side, please move over. Do not block the whole traffic behind you. Be courteous... I see people leaving 10 school buses space in between cars. Move along with the traffic so that you do not have to be causing the traffic. If you do not want to drive with speed limit, then move over to your right and let others move...
    • Vic on:
      Why?
      "Quite often you see people that will turn right in front of you cutting you off when you are going some insane speed." The problem is your driving at an insane speed. It's insane aa you say.

  • 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.
