RE: Wow-do I got woad wage or what?

I got a 40 as well. About right. I'm impatient but not shittin-my-pants crazy like some of these fools I see everyday. I've seen "kids" pass people on the right and left shoulders of the highway here at 70 mph. Bad driving doesn't take skill. Going 20 years without a ticket or an accident like I have done does. One question that the test doesn't ask that might have raised my score?- Do you carry a registered firearm in your car? My answer - YES [:0]

RE: Wow-do I got woad wage or what?

Your score = 100






What does your score mean?
Talk about a recipe for disaster: in one vehicle mix a handful of any combination of the following ingredients; pride, aggression, anger, frustration, impatience, intolerance, and stress. Stir vigorously and you've got yourself a healthy helping of road rage. According to this test, you've got all the symptoms. You get overly worked up over everyday driving situations, and often resort to nasty tactics to bulldoze your way through traffic - maybe even physically attacking others! One of the problems with this volatile concoction is that most of the people afflicted by it don't even realize they have a problem. For your own mental well-being and physical health and for the safety of everyone else on the road, you should work on overcoming your highway demons... before they lead to disaster.


OK-the kicker here is that many of the questions ask "Have you EVER...." and in my youth I was a little less calm than I am now.
I have received a police caution three times for riding/driving on the sidewalk and had a face to face 'discussion' with a gas station owner for using his site as a shortcut every morning.
I should also add that I have a completely clean licence and it's been that way for years and years.

RE: Wow-do I got woad wage or what?

10 (this isn't an IQ test, is it?)

"Congratulations! According to your test results, you are one cool cucumber behind the wheel. You manage to stay calm in almost any driving situation, whether stuck behind granny driving at a turtle's pace or watching helplessly as someone swipes your parking spot. You seem to recognize that such occurrences, albeit irritating, are just not the end of the world. You are able to put the little quirks and foibles of the highway scene into perspective; so what if you have to wait a couple minutes at a red light, or you're a few minutes late for work? Thanks to drivers like you, we manage to maintain a certain level of sanity on our roads."

Personally I enjoy parking brake stunts, as long as I am in a loaner. Also a good ol' fashioned reverse 180 is always fun when a large parking lot looms.

In truth, that was my post-ludes score. My ludes score would likely be over 150. [B)]

oooh, loaners are such fun aren't they [:p]
great for trashing around.
Once we made a family road trip through the States, and rented a Ford Windstar 3.4. hehe great time going offroad, and destroying the two rear shocks. And they actually apologized and gave us a new one in Vegas.
