    Does it matter? I'm seriously asking -- I don't know a whole lot about shooting people from my car. I mean... as much as its been in the news, you'd think I would right?

    What happened to my thread? I leave for a few moments and now we are killing people.

    What about most likely to stop at a green light because they didn't notice it was green?

    I've done that plenty of times. x_~
    However, I do like driving.
    I speed a lot, so long as I don't get uncomfortably close to cars. I'm also hesitant to change lanes.

    i think that is right up there with absent minded driving. I've done this A LOT. Or i go straight through a red light without realizing it was red.

    Like SC, I've done this a few times, and have gone through red lights both because I didn't realize that the light was red, and that I didn't realize it was there at all (granted, generally when there were no other cars in the vicinity). I've also been honked at because I pulled out a book and started to read while waiting for a long red light and didn't notice it turning green. That move is surprisingly unpopular with other drivers .

    I always get away with the most I can without getting caught so I'm always on the lookout for cops. I pretty much always speed, but have never gotten a ticket (for multiple reasons). Normally aware of what is going on around me and I'm an excessive lane switcher. I -hate- getting boxed in by slow people.

    and I love driving.

    my boyfriend could have posted this. Except he likes to boast about how he is a superior driver.

    Love Driving - Hate Traffic so I avoid major roads as much as possible.
    Skilled Driver - When I'm not off in my head and blowing through stop signs etc. Never been in an accident.
    Car uses Premium - Otherwise it knocks, the blower requires high octane
    I use turn signals when I'm within a certain distance of other drivers, otherwise I can't be bothered.
    I can't stand slow drivers, or following behind someone else so I will move if someone is coming up behind me faster.
    I don't drive in the left lane if I can avoid it - Cops target that lane I haven't had a ticket in over a decade
    I like driving in the snow, hate the people who crawl along and take up both lanes and refuse to move over.
    I dislike Traction control, ABS, and Stability control they ruin my fun
    I've driven up to 22hrs straight before only stopping for gas etc.
    I don't fully stop at a stop sign unless theres other cars around.
    I drive 10 over the limit when I can. Unless I'm in the country then I drive way faster.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    I'm the opposite. I'm another one of those who'll cross the entire highway without straightening the wheel if there's enough space. On good days, I'll miss my exit waiting for a stretch like that to come up.

    I really hate driving (one tally for the ENTPs) in case I haven't said that. It's not that I don't like going places...

    Well actually it is. I don't like going places. I like BEING at places, but I very much dislike going there. At least in a car. It's boring. And people are annoying.

    Because of my staunch opposition to driving itself, I can't bring myself to do it without having brought something along to do.

    It's probably not interesting to hear that I'm usually eating when I drive; not chips... I have fucking meals. The most complex of these was a plate spaghetti. I'm working my way up to cereal. I'm sure you're wondering if I use both hands to eat. Yes, I do. And I steer. And weave through traffic. Nevermind a cell phone. I don't dick around with wimp moves like that.

    If I'm not eating, I'm either doing su doku or a rubiks cube (some kind of Ti bullshit activity). The reason? If I don't have something to manipulate with my hands, I start to thinking at red lights. And I don't always notice when they turn green. And I don't always notice when the people behind me start honking. And I don't always notice when the light turns red again.

    I'm usually struck by a tap at my window when the person behind me comes to make sure I'm not dead/in a coma.

    But that's behavior ranging from main roads to cul de sacs. I haven't even started on highways yet.

    When I get in the seat and turn the key, I start gearing up mentally (sometimes consciously... sometimes not) for what's about to come. I start theorizing. Obviously when I've got to get onto the interstate, I can't stop for a spot of tea or to play checkers against myself, and if I don't have anyone else with me to talk to, as boring as the highway is, I'll probably start to thinking, just like at the red light.

    So for this reason, it's my usual plan to play games with the drivers around me. I'm easy to spot on the road. I'll be the one who cuts off the same guy 12 times in a row, and still make it look like a coincidence each time.

    You'll also know it's me when there are no other cars around.

    Or if you see me putting my left blinker on and then getting off at an exit, make your way over and pull off so you can catch up and give me a wave.

    I once turned on my hazard lights and pulled in front of a MACK truck, and went 5 under the speed limit during heavy traffic. As I sat there laughing as the stretch of pavement between me and the car in front of me quickly widened, I couldn't help thinking I might be holding up a delivery of toaster strudels to Giant or something.

    I changed my mind. I do like driving.

    I imagine how much a person likes driving also heavily depends on their environment. If I lived in a small town, I probably wouldn't care about driving at all...but I find the Houston freeways significantly more exciting (barring stop and go traffic).
