..This is a hilarious thread.

Quote:
reminds me of a case where somebody suffered deep bites when the car passed over a bump...
.. mmm. If the driver was the person who suffered these 'bites' then I am wondering that there could be danger of 'over steering' or 'under steering' depending on the speed. (not don't ask which speed you dirty folks)

But then if there was 'power steering' then it could be a different case than 'manual steering'

Cheers,

LOL! Get the point. But the fellow stays close-by, and also, the girl was an overweight kid, not a lady as such!
Good thinking though....

Yes, this combined with folded-in OVRMs can be distracting (hey that guy looks just like me...)

  1. Dont try to change CD/Tape or search for a particular CD/tape while driving
  2. Dont turn IRVM towards you and keep checking yourself
  3. Dont engage in heated /animated conversation with co passenger (your car also will start responding)
  4. Dont start looking out for a source of rattle /other unusual sound you may hear in the middle of driving
  5. Dont get angry (very common but very difficult to practice)
  6. Dont think about very seious issues/incidents (such as discussion with boss over peformance appraisal)
  7. Dont keep looking in to the speedo and drive
  8. dont keep a child without child seat when you are driving alone as they need attention all the time
  9. Dont start appreciating a subject (such as cars, people...) which may appear in your RVM

Do not attempt to to do any drugs while driving.

Dont get into a fight with your mother in law on the rear seat, if you crash remember you were driving she was at the back, and thus she is safe while you are not.

One of my friend learnt driving in the US. The instructor said that he would only two advices to stay out of trouble.

1. No matter what, never look down into your car i.e., if anything drops off (like a pen, mobile, etc.) while driving, never try to locate it. Never take your eyes off the road.
2. Never forgot the first one.

Don't turn around to look at a Ferrari going in the opposite direction on the other side of the road. Crashed my car into the back of a Mondeo doing just the same. Only thing is, even the Mondeo driver was. LOL. Both of us had a nice laugh and went on our ways since no damage was done

Do not drive into Gobar. And even if you do, DO NOT start a thread about it on TBHP. Can lead to overpopulation in mental asylums.

And almost broken homes. My wife threatened me with a divorce if I read the dung thread any longer. She apparently can not stand the incessant laughter.

Now I dont read it at home but in the office.

Hehehe. Should also add: DO NOT read the Dung Attack thread when travelling in a car, even if you are a passenger. Infact, to be on the safer side, best not to hit the road for at least 2 hours after reading that thread.

1. Do not try to find out different settings possible in your music system (I tried doing that once and found myself doing stunts on the road)
2. Do not do seat adjustments while driving
