How Dangerous a Driver Are You?

I guess the premise is that you can't be a totally safe driver, but you can be less dangerous than everyone else.

How dangerous of a driver are you?

I think I scored "above average" instead of "excellent" because I answered honestly the "have you ever driven under the influence" question. Not in the last 20 years or so, but....ever? I'd have to guess, if I'm perfectly honest, that there was one time in my very early 20s when I maybe shouldn't have driven home.

As to speeding... not so much anymore. Before marriage and kids and the overall transformation to Boring Middle-aged Person, I did like to drive pretty fast. Even then, though, I didn't tailgate or weave in and out of lanes or pass people on the right without giving them ample opportunity to move over first. Tailgaters all suck, and the tailgaters who come up close behind you and flash their lights when it's perfectly clear to anyone paying attention that there is absolutely no opportunity to move out of their way -- they suck most of all.


  1. A lot of these online quizzes seem to assume that everyone is <30 years old. PpptththT!

  2. It's true... and the Facebook ones are even worse. I have yet to see one without a lot of very stupid spelling mistakes.

  3. I got the same answer as you and probably for the same reason. It's been almost 25 years since I drove under the influence, but I did do it and therefore answered honestly.
