Angry lost control =(

funny things happen when the ground is wet and there are wet leaves. also stupid driving instructors who don't obey the laws of driving*! i was at a stop sign yesterday waiting for the road to clear of traffic so i could turn left. I stopped first at the sign and waited for the road to clear. A driving instructor who was driving the vehicle stopped a little while later after i had stopped (he was goin the opposite way). When the road cleared up i went (since it was my right of way..i stopped first right?..duh) anywho he gunned it as i was making the turn. i slowed down to honk and as i drove around him the rear end got tail happy. so i tried to correct it..when all of a sudden a guy on a bike comes toward me..i panic because i almost hit him..so i turn into the skid some more..(bad idea) the car over corrected and began to skid the other way..so i tried to correct it..but by that time i had already tried to power out of the skid by feathering the gas pedal..so the car went sideways..i hit a parked car and i spun onto the curve. The sad part is that i was just leaving school to go to work and people automatically assumed that i was "showing off" and got my self introuble when the truth was i tried to avoid a serious accident by avoiding the guy on the bike. its funny how people don't know who you are and how you are but say your a punk kid who shows off when they didn't even see the incident in the first place. Well i may be able to claim a rim that was scratched 3 months ago in a different situation (snow covered a curb and i didn't see it) atleast some sort of light has presented itself...thats my story for today.

Hmm.... I find it quite fishy as to how you can actually lose control at an all stop. You can't be topping more than 15-20 to make that turn unless you yourself gunned it.

I agree Gambit.

Reaching 20 mph in about 1 car length would be impressive(for going to work driving). I dont understand how this could happen, even on wet leaves.

I live in oregon, 2nd only to washington for wet weather driving.

Exclamation

whoops hehe not 3 months ago..duh..7 i mean..(can't think..need food..)

i wasn't completely stopped..thats the thing..i slowed down when the guy went through..i must have been doing about 15k when i turned to avoid him....off the record..i didn't stop the gas pedal..i gave it about 1/4 throttle as i turned...mabe that was my downfall.

I believe you if that helps at all...sorry to hear about the car! But at least you didn't hit the biker, as that could've resulted in far worse money issues (like getting sued or something dumb like that). Hope everything works out for ya.
