    Come wildly out of a BAR/LOUNGE parking lot, make a big swoop to the wrong lane, and come speeding at the car I was in before it hit us and killed my friend, who was driving.  That particular move "won the prize" as far as I'm concerned.

      wow - I am sorry.  It would win the prize as well as break my heart.  Were they drunk?

    On more than one occasion I've seen drivers distracted by their cell phones narrowly avoid causing serious accidents.  On one occasion I saw a person texting while stopped at an intersection slightly let go of the break and roll into traffic.  If the other drivers had not been alert, someone would've been injured.

    Hello Lwelch,

    I drove behind this car on a country road and all of a sudden the other car pulled out from the right. The crashed into each other full lot...both survived and there was no blood but it looked awful.

      Passing without yielding or in a bad place is so common.  I almost had a head on a few months ago when a car tried to pass a bicycle without enough space in front of him and no extra space as it was a 2 lane bridge.

    I have a lot but the winner goes to the railroad tracks person.  There is a set of three tracks near here.  There is one track, a big gap, then two more.  The gates were down and we were waiting.  They went up.  Everyone went through and backed up at the subsequent light.  A lady drove onto the tracks while the traffic  was backed up at the light.  She had no room to get off the tracks due to the light.  The gates went down.  She starts panicking.  She pulls into the gap area between the tracks and waits.  Doesn't get out of her car.  Luckily it was enough room.

    Moral of the story:
    1. Never enter RR tracks unless there is room on the other side to exit them
    2. If you are trapped on tracks or between tracks for any reason, get out of your car and run!
    3. If you can't follow those directions, pay for an amazing guardian angel.

    Those that will not yield and share the road when a person is trying to cross over to their respective lanes........especially on the freeway and interstates, near exits.   This could possibly cause the driver that needs to get to another lane to be forced off of the road or miss their destination; or crash?

    Next vehicles that spew large stones that hit others windshields.  If you don't have a bulletproof window a person could possibly suffer a blow similar to a gunshot if it hits the right spot.  But I am not sure this is caused or an accident?

    When a driver got road rage earlier this week towards me he drove on the wrong side of the road double the speed limit and put the brakes on about 30 metres ahead drifting to a stop so his car was parked sideways to block me from going anywhere.
    I'm not trying to self promote but the full story is in this hub http://jackcoburn.hubpages.com/hub/The- … rld-part-2 it was some of the most stupidest driving I've ever seen.
