will she kill me?

on the way home we thought it would be fun to race a little bit on the freeway. we were doing at least 115. the race ended when i spun out trying to take a curve and i was doing 100+ still. i don't remember how many times the car spun but i just remember doing at least a 360 before the car stopped. miraculously, the car missed hitting a guard rail and going over the edge of the exit. the only damage to the car were the tires on the driver side when the car started sliding sideways.


do you think my grandma will kill me if i tell her? i do plan on replacing the tires with my own money since it was me that damaged them. i haven't been able to get a good look at the tire damage yet as this happened last night but from what i've seen, the tires on the driver side are in really bad shape.

You worry about tires when you, as a driver, probably need the bigger make-over?

Even though I open up whenever I drive every now and then, I never push the limits beyond what my car and I can do to a level of dumbass...Just don't do it ever again...

And yes, she'll probably kill you; I sure as hell would...

Well, Grandma, I was racing on the freeway today, doing at least 115, when (wouldn't ya know it!) I did a 360 and almost flew off the side of the exit while taking a turn at three times the recommended speed. The good news is, only the tires are completely destroyed instead of me.

Now, would you like a shotgun or a crowbar?

I wonder if you've thought about what you did from your grandma's perspective. Then realize again what you did, pay for all repairs and if you shoud tell her depends on how your relationship to her is, I think.. But you can better tell about that than any of us here..

i realized it was a stupid thing to do about a second after the car stopped skidding. it's also a good thing there were no other cars on the freeway when it happened. i'm not going to do any kind of racing any more.

i am very much more responsible on the roads today than i was yesterday. i have to be careful as the front tire has a chunk of tread missing and some metal wire is exposed. the rear tire isn't as bad as it isn't showing wire, but still needs to be replaced. as i said before, i'm going to buy a whole new set for my being dumb. i haven't seen any damage on the passenger side tires(other than the one tire that's been needing to be replaced) but i will replace them anyways.

Tell her you rode the kerb by accident when you were pulling into a parking space, and it tore up the tyres. Then tell her you'll happily replace them. That'll cover your ass, and show her that you are acting responsibly fro the accident.

As for the driving, if you're going to do that kinda stuff, then do it somewhere there isn't guard rails/embankments/other cars/pedestrians. I'm not going to put you down for wanting to go fast, I have done the same, but the difference is, my dad took me out when I was 15 and taught me to do this kind of stuff properly - he figured that it was better that he taught me properly, than me trying it when he wasn't there, and killing myself in the process, and he was right.

And to prove my point, when I did try racing on the road at 19 (because I knew oh-so-much), I wrote off the car, dislocated my shoulders on impact and was blind in one eye for three months. I wouldn't recommend it.

Like my photography? Buy some here....

Thanks. I can't really take credit for that image, though. I'm pretty sure Bizz posted it in the RB a while back. I came into this thread just to say "Are you retarded?!" and then remembered I still had that pic. Just thought it was more appropriate here. (If I remember correctly, Bizz started a thread with just the image by itself)

I won't slate you for what you did, everyone else has allready made you aware that what you did was daft.

Replace the tyres definately - but if you have learned your lesson then maybe not worry your gran with what really happened. If though you believe you should be totally honest - then be that - honest.

Do not do it again without learning first how to do it!

Anybody can make a car go fast - thats the easy bit - stopping it or controlling it is a different ball game all together!

You know? I think it should be mandatory that drivers should attend Anti Skidding manoveur class's.

Best post I read was ethans - even after being 'Taught' properly, he still crashed and quite severely injured himself - suppose that says it all really....

Thankfully you came away from it with a few scuffed tyres. You take more care and don't give into the temptation again....

what's strange about the whole thing is that earlier in the week i read a John 5:14.

"Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, "See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you."

i'm now applying that to my life. after the car stopped moving, that verse became stuck in my mind. it became the theme for the rest of the night and the next day. i was thinking that what happened was only one of many things that could have happened. i could have been hit by another car passing by or went off the exit or something worse. i've decided that i'm not going to race or go dangerously fast like that any more even if i do know how to do it correctly. just because you know how to do it doesn't give you the right to do it.

please no religious debate. i am a christian and i'm not going to argue with anybody about it as it always turns out the same.

No need for a religious debate on that. "Do bad things => Bad things happen to you" shows up in almost every religion and most non-religious ways of thinking. Especially if one defines "bad things" to include "putting yourself and others in unnecessary risk."
I'm glad you've learned an important lesson but I still can't imagine what possessed you to attempt that
/doesn't drive due to fear of driving

False. Because you still don't know what someone else may do to accidentally (or even on purpose) cause you to do something in the car that could've made it flip. Or worse.

If you equate racing as the only way to spin out and to a 360, and think that if you stop racing, that you wont spin out, then you’re badly mistaken.

That still doesn't eliminate car accidents. And even the best of drivers eventually make mistakes. Driving safely isn't going to stop you from running over a nail you may not see, pop a tire, and spin out or something. Driving safe doesn't equate to being safe.

Driving safe does bring your survival rating up a whole hell of a lot from some idiot that drives 120 and uses the handbreak to turn. You don't even need to be in a car to be killed in an accident so it really doesn't matter.

i figure, if i don't race, i don't have to worry about getting hurt in a race. i just have to keep an eye out for everybody else. so far, i've only had close calls. i'm actually kinda nervous when i drive now.

You can still be hurt in someone else's race...

The nervousness will pass in a week or two.

i'm pretty sure the nervousness will pass sooner than that. but i'm just kinda nervous with that tire being heavily damaged. i hope to get a job quickly so i can replace those tires. i may get a loan from my sister or somebody so i can get a used tire(safer than the current one) to replace the bad one.

You could look on the nervous feeling as a good thing. You've just scared the shit out of yourself, told a bunch of internet people what you did, been shouted at for it and it's not surprising that you feel as you do now. You'll at least be using the nervous-time as think-more-sensibly-in-the-future-time.
I'm glad that the boy racer mentality has left you almost as soon as it arrived.

Indeed, you should always drive according to the conditions. And there are cases where driving faster than the posted limit isn't dangerous or stupid....
