I went two times driving to Guayaquil and Quito, believe me bus drivers are worst here.

bus drivers are worst here too... they drive like they own the road... but the most troublesome are probably motorcycles ! they drive like they have many spare lifes...
The devil we blame our atrocities on is really just each one of us.

I think I'm a good driver. I could use more highway experience and my parallel parking blows, but I drive safely. I don't really even like driving- too much money and liability. I'd prefer just to bike everywhere (I'm sure I'll still be saying when I'm old....Ermm)

"my driving techniques are great, but I drive like an ass"

Well I commute in Los Angeles, sometimes you have to be an ass. I have only been driving for six months so I haven't driven in all conditions.

I'm good, but I can speed or do other infractions >> But I am never to be a danger to anyone while infracting rules
 
But I know when to do those infractions.Wink
let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

'my driving techniques are great, but I drive like an ass'

if you don't count many speeding tickets... one totalled '78 Firebird.... numerous other close calls... I'd say my technique is great..I'm still alive.LOL

btw.... I learned to drive watching Mad Max...

I am the Nightrider! I am a fuel-injected suicide machine! I am a rocker! I am a roller! I am an out-of-controller! I am the Chosen One! The mighty hand of Vengeance! Sent down to strike the unroadworthy! HAHAHAHAH... hotter than a rolling dice! Step right up, chum, and watch the kid lay down a rubber road right to freedom!

Better give some further explications before sounding like Mad Max.
 
Been driving since 79 and must be close to 1 000 000 Km. Only totalled one car (the second >> A Mazda GLC , my first being a 65 chevy Impala with a 6 cyl which had the greatest problem overcoming the 55 MPH limits), and since then I've only had a few brushes (bent or scratched metal) and I have a B/M of 3 (normal is 11 and it'sgetting really hazrd to find insurance at 17) . Never a suspended license, never burned ared light (but a few overiped oranges well), haven't gotten a ticket in the last three years (except parking).
 
 
 
I am very polite and careful of pedestrians, but if I can squish the seven poodles of this old lady that has them pooping all over the place, I will make sure I hit her instead of the poodles.

I can be both good and bad to the bone.

I've been driving alone for about 3 months now so I'm still learning the ropes when it gets difficult.

I am overall a safe driver but needsa lot more experience...I've passed my exam 18 months ago but I rarely get the chance to drive so whenever I do I still get a bit nervous.

To quote Dustin Hoffman's character in "Rainman,"
 
I'm an excellent driver...
 
Seriously, the secret is just to be aware of what's going on around you.  You can call the person back when you get where you're going.  Pay attention to the road!

Could you do me a small favour and paint your car fluorescent green or something, just on the off chance I should happen to drive through Finland for any reason...Wink
