Do you speed, are you agressive? Are you slow and careful? What about parking?

Are you generally distracted in the car? Do you use your cellphone etc?

Play music too loud?

Generally I drive like an old lady.  I stick to the speed limit. If I feel crazy I might go an extra 5 mph.  I get made fun of for my driving all the time, but my record and insurance rates speak for themselves.  I've never caused an accident, and in nearly 20 years of driving I've had 2 tickets. Last one was over 5 years ago (and I did stop at that stop sign Officer Dickhead).

 By having no need for a car, yet. And financial reason too.

If someone else is in the car (or I am in a populated area) I drive carefully, otherwise I speed maniacally.  I love speed, it must be how a pyro feels about fire.

Right now I have an SUV (it's useful in rural regions) so I don't get to speed much, but I rent cars a fair bit (when I need to go anywhere far) so that's usually when I get a chance.

I don't speed, but have a very agressive driving style, perhaps learned the hard way by driving in a city full of maniacal taxi drivers and even more fucked up bus drivers with huge-ass, older than the stones metal coffins that break apart at every sharp turn.

I never speed, at least not intentionally.

I am slow and extremely careful. I'm very paranoid about hitting someone.

I park as far away from other people as possible, and I never parallel park (thankfully, not an issue here).

The only time I get distracted in a car is when other people are riding with me, and they're constantly talking or playing with my radio. I get so damn flustered. I usually make them drive so I don't have to deal with it.

I don't own or want a cellphone. Cellphones = evil.

I have a radio/CD player in my car, which I've owned  for 6 years now, and I've only used it twice. I find music to be annoying, thus distracting while driving.

I'm a passenger! 

However when I have driven it's very careful. Except in go karts, then it's the oposite.

I dont parellel park either, I can reverse park.

I never break the national speed limit either 60 or 70 mph.

I see everyone breaking the 30mph limit though, so much so that if you stick to it you get people either honking or overtaking, or riding your ass hard.

I'm not aggressive and I rarely speed, unless by mistake, like not paying attention.  I

ve become even more careful since there is a child in the back now.

I like driving fast, but not outside the limits of my car or the conditions/situation. I typically only go about 10km/h over the limit driving on my own.

 Because with more people in the car, you can then kill them too? Grinning

Oh parallel parking! Don't get me started. I always just park way the f*** away and walk rather than parallel park.

For some reason I find angle parking more difficult than parallel parking. I tend to misjudge the angle that my car is at, whereas I can nail a P-Park fine.
