CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Just like you never forget your first car, you also never forget your first car accident. And unfortunately, they are just a part of the growing pains associated with being a new driver.


Last week, I asked you guys to recall your first car accident. Hopefully, nobody got hurt and you walked away that day learning a few valuable lessons. That’s the tricky thing about experience: You only gain it in hindsight.

My first car accident took place in the high school parking lot when I was a senior. I have a feeling a lot of these are going to take place at around the same time for the rest of you.

Let’s hear it.
