my 10 driving stats.

I've just got my driving logs upto date (something I've done since I 1st had a moped at age of 16).

As of August 2007, I have had a  license for  26 years. In that time I have:
1. Driven 1,650,000 miles.
2. Owned 19 vehicles.
3. Driven 112 vehicles.
4. Been responsible for 1 single vehicle accident.
5. Been responsible for 2 accidents involving a 3rd party.
6. Not been responsible for an accident for 20 years.
7. Been involved in 8 non fault accidents.
8. Been found guilty of 3 motoring offences.
9. Taken 1 driving test, (2 if I include ADI part 2).
10. Never driven completely fault free.

Have you got 10 driving facts that you wish to share?

Re: my 10 driving stats.

Can't say I've ever kept a motoring log other than keeping an eye on the mpg now and then.

1. Cheapest car (1st) £60 Mini
2. Most expensive Golf GTI £16200
3. Maddest car Fiat X1/9 Fiat + (Fix - It - Again - Tomorrow)
4. No of cars gotten into by mistake for mine = 1 (Yes my key fitted)
5. No of wrong turns taken, hundreds!
6. No of walls knocked over = 1 (Nudged when parking and the ?????? fell over!)
7. Detached gear levers = 1 ( made for an interesting few seconds)
8. At fault accidents = 1
9. Accident due to 3rd party = 1
10. Never driven completely fault free, probably never will.... sad

Re: my 10 driving stats.

Here I go...

1) First car - and the cheapest - in 1967, a 1949 sidevalve Morris Minor with engine running on 3 cylinders, for $A50. Especially cheap as Dad paid for it! No worries about the engine, a "wrecked dinghy" with the same type of engine was lying alongside, a few more dollars changed hands, engine swap done, away I went with original donk sitting in boot.

2) Number of cars owned - I can't match Dimmy's total of 19 but I had 10, the most reliable by far being 2 Corollas, the most fun a Cortina with a 6-cylinder engine. Worst - Cortina with a six cylinder engine (body fell to bits in a BIG way), Cortina with a 4-cylinder engine (hopeless vibrating gutless engine). Most comfortable tourer - a classic old Holden V8. Most useful - a Toyota Hilux utility.

3) Prangs I've caused? oh god how embarrassing. The first was when I skidded my 1956 Velox into the back of a car waiting at a ferry crossing, a stupid young man (me) who was yet to learn about defensive driving and the limitations of novice drivers. The last well I didn't so much cause it but failed to prevent it. A student for some unknown reason decided to suddenly give my powerful 2.4l litre Lancer full-throttle in a carpark - I was a bit late with the dual brake.

4) Detached gear levers? In my case it was a detached steering wheel followed by a detached rear seat. While trying to sell my Minor to a mate with his wife in the rear seat, I got caught braking too late approaching a remote crossroad (unpaved). I braked so hard the steering wheel column came out of the floor, we skidded across the empty intersection and thumped a low embankment. The rear seat complete with mate's missus tried to join us in front. No, in case you were wondering, I didn't make
the sale.

5) Numbers of cars gotten into by mistake. I've got close to getting into a few, but on one unhappy occasion I went the full Monty so to speak.
Intermission at the Tennant Creek Drive-In Theatre was over, lights went out, I made my way from the canteen back to my car in near darkness. Ah! the orange Cortina at last. Balance goodies in one hand, open door with other, jump into driver's seat. Oops wrong car!! The male who was occupying the driver's seat was NOT impressed!! Just my luck that one of the smallest, remotest outback towns had two identical cars. This was just as embarrassing as the infamous "rubber band incident" which was mentioned in a recent thread, whichalso happened in Tennant Creek.

6) I've been driving for 42 years now - I don't know the miles I've logged but even before I was an ADI I had jobs involving very long distance driving in the outback and elsewhere, not to mention 6,000km return trips on annual leave. Must be in the many millions of km's

7) I think that's enough, points 1) to 5) are embarrassing enough.

Surely a quick wash in the driveway, a hose down and a chamois off will do the job instead?
Anyway you should never leave a car unattended in a bath, they aren't responsible you know. Tsk tsk

Re: my 10 driving stats.

Well here's my input

1. Passed my driving test March '98, my bike test in October '00 and my final ADI test on October '06

2. Owned 4 cars (Fiesta, Golf, Clio and a Fiat Tipo), and 5 bikes (CB125, Bandit 400, GPZ 500, Fazer 600, Diversion 400)

3. Only ever had one at fault accident, one no fault accident (both within a month!), and was miffed by a muddy corner on my bike once and ended up sliding down the road, with a broken collar bone to show how silly I was

4. I don't mind public transport, but don't like buses. I would rather cycle (and often do!)

5. No motoring convictions  :angel:

6. Stopped by the police once (7 years ago), for a headlight bulb being out

7. Would much rather get my hands dirty playing with engine parts than take it to a garage (or in with one of my bikes, play with the engine, then have to borrow a friend's van to take it to the garage, so they could fix my mistake!)

8. Never owned a diesel, but that might change next year

9. Stupid mistakes - 1 - locked keys in the car before a job interview. Luckily I had just bought the car from a friend and he hadn't dropped over the spare key yet. I managed to get to the interview on time...just smile

10. Absolutely no one is a perfect driver all the time

Re: my 10 driving stats.

1) Passed my 4th test on 12/10/05

2) Currently drive in excess of 250miles a week

3) I am still on my first car - he is very low mileage despite being 10 years old!

4) Driven about 16,000 miles ish since I passed my test.

5) I am hopeless with directions and have even managed to get lost in freddie WITH the sat nav, D'oh. It didn;t makeit explicit that the street I wanted was this huge long main road, I didn;t relaise, its just near me but I didn;t realise, LOL!

6)Been in 1 accident, was eventually deemed to be all my fault AFTER the witness chnaged what they said blah blah blah.

7) Have driven on our private road mum's X type jaguar and dads VW transporter van - has a middle mirror but solid doors, logic erm I see none lol Disliked both because stalled them so easily, people telling me diesel's ahrder to stall pfffft hahaha.

8) No convistions to date *touches wood so as not to jinx it)

9) never driven faultless except for a 20min stretch in my 3rd test where was told drove with no minors of majors, drn it, just means faults wouldn;t have been big enough to mark at all though b:lol:

10) I use the A2 every weekday of my driving life, it is the bane of my driving life because it gets so flippin clogged up, with roadworks not helping
