I've been driving for 18 years-- I've had my share of them- Knock on wood!!! I haven't had any in quite a while-- I hope one doesn't find me now- When I was younger my dad would only buy me junk cars-- Cuz he said I drove like I was in a demolition derby : ) I even made him some money on 2 cars.. The other drivers fault and they had to pay the value of the car- I once took out this guys prize apple tree-- Oh he was sooo mad! I had to go work in his yard for a month- : ( I think I have been in 5 or 6.. nothing too major- I've walked away from them all.

I am 25 and have been driving for 7 years! I have been in 3 major car wrecks, and two fender benders.. none of them being my fault. I was also in a major carwreck when I was in the sixth grade... my dad was driving and that one was also not his fault! My last carwreck was on the 23rd of Feb where my car was totaled, I almost lost my life.. all due to a teenage driver who was looking for her cellphone on the floorboard!

those cell phones cause many accidents. im surprised insurance companies don't charge more for that fact right there.

Over 30+ years of driving I have been in 2 bad accidents, neither my fault.And then some idiot backed into me in the Walgreens parking lot !! He didn't want police or ins. involved so he payed for the repairs. The dumbest thing I did was this past winter. My aughter parks at the tpo of the driveway and I usually swere my car around hers. Have no idea wher my brain went, I Backed up into her car !!! Talk about feeling stupid!!!! Better in my driveway then on the road!!

I've only been driving for 6 years now, not bad as I only learnt to drive at 50 years of age. I have only had one accident though, and that was when someone pulled out in front of me without signalling. I lost a wing mirror as I swerved to avoid him.

I have been driving for 15 years now and I have been lucky and have had no accidents, I hope I never do, but you never know what can happen.
