Close Calls

Just came back from work about an hour ago....i work in a movie theater and stupid place decided not to close on a day that's dumping inches of snow....anyways, on the way home i spun out going 20 mph.....luckily barely any cars were around so i didn't get involved in an accident.....yeesh, snow is sure pretty to look at, but driving through it sux.....have you guys/gals experienced such a thing or anything similar?....man, lucky to be alive...that's what i am...

I have close calls every day I drive. But the freakiest one was when I was driving my old car and the brakes just weren't very good and some lady cut me off and then slammed on her brakes. I came sooo close to hitting her-I was so freaked out I couldn't even flip her off like she deserved.

Oooooh, that's no good......you should have honked your horn and screamed fanatically while you were flipping her off....that's the right way to do it

I had a close call in my old Honda Accord. The brakes died on me and I had to use the E brake in traffic until I got to the dealer.

LMAO!!

I had a close call when I had my 94 Sentra about 3-4 years ago; I was driving on a local highway in Philly when I was checking my mirrors to make a lane change into the left lane, when the car in front slowed down suddenly, I steered to the left. But I overcorrected to avoid the car in front and almost hit the center concrete barrier. Luckily I only lost traction( on a dry road) for a second and let off the gas pedal to get back on track. My heart was beating really fast after that!!
