More Dumb Drivers from Around the World
By KBB.com Editors on January 11, 2009 6:48 AMI am a good driver, said an 84-year-old Australian woman after her license was suspended for an additional 12 months. The woman, who has been in traffic court more than 70 times in recent years, crashed into a parked car. It normally wouldn't have been a big deal, but her previous suspension was until 2999 and now she can't drive until 3000. "It's all lies," she said. In Virginia, a six-year-old boy decided to take the family car after missing the school bus. In six miles, he passed several cars and successfully negotiated a pair of 90-degree turns before running off the road and into a telephone pole; he was about a mile from school. The boy said he learned to drive playing Grand Theft Auto on the computer. Joe Gibbs should sign him up for the NASCAR team's driver development program. And finally, during her driver's test, a New York woman crashed into a parked car, pinning a man against his vehicle. We'd give her an "F" and schedule a retest for 2999.
