Buggered my wheel this morning. :-(

Road outside my street was like an ice rink. Little skid turning on to it. Crunch.

Owch! Unlucky.

I love driving in the snow. On my seventeenth birthday, my Dad took me out onto an empty ice-covered car park and told me to rag it about for a few hours. He reasoned that I should learn to control skids/slides etc. in a safe environment so I could handle them in more extreme (ie, non-icy, on the road in traffic) conditions. Those lessons that day have, I'm fairly sure, saved my life at least once since then.

I know I should change it but... it's cold wet and just generally shitty outside.

I live on quite a severe hill, this morning while driving to work, up said hill, I came upon a little peugeot 106, who was sat, front wheels spinning, going nowhere, half way up the hill, now my car is 4 wheel drive, so the hill doesn't really hamper it in any conditions, i cruised past the little pug, and then felt guilty, so I got out and gave him a push...and managed to provide just enough forward momentum to get him going, at which point he drove into a skip...nice one.

Hmm bet that made them appreciate your help. Sounds like something I might do.

I've always liked helping push cars. Don't know why, possibily something to do with overcoming the adversity of weather and the incapability of machines with good ol' muscle power.

Also it was something else to do on the way to school. Community spirit and all that.

Mat: I'd like to think I'd be as canny as your dad was.

Joe says:

I wouldn't usually get involved in gender arguments, I was brought up in a feminist household, and my mum is a girl racer...but I'm sorry, women are not better drivers, if they where, every formula 1 car, every rally car, every le mans car would be driven by a woman, the simple fact is that the female gender does not have the same level of spacial awareness as the male gender, we find it easier to judge distances and's not an insult, it's just the way we've evolved.

Helen says:

It's not a question of gender, it is a question of intelligence.

Thoughtful intelligent people are rubbish drivers. Far too busy thinking to concentrate on the road.

That's my excuse.

And women are more intelligent than men ; )

From what I understand of insurance claims, accident rates, etc, women have a larger amount of smaller events (prangs) and men have more large events (crashes).

This is supposedly due to men being naturally greater risk-takers, and more inclined to drive at higher speed. That's what I've heard, at least - I'm not touching the "women are rubbish at driving" thing with a barge-pole.

Generalisations are just asking for trouble.

That's why I make them.

Does it say anything about redheads?

spongevid says:

women drivers are either really good, or really bad, i've found.
men on the otherhand i think can be a wide spectrum of bad and good, so it's more difficult to tell. how "good" they are.

Helen says:

Are we still talking about driving?

I should shut up now.

Helen says:

I can get angry and stubborn. Oops. It is true.
