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

What was that time you “got away with it” in your car?

“It” can be anything. Did you walk away from the showroom or a private seller after bargaining the car down to an incredible price? Did you successfully evade getting a speeding ticket somehow?


Did you steal away in the night with a girlfriend or boyfriend in the passenger seat with the windows down and the heat on high and drove until you hit the next state? Do you occasionally channel Carrie Underwood?

I won’t tell you about the time I was speeding on a back road in Cape Cod many winters ago. I won’t tell you that I hit speeds that were probably illegal.


I totally didn’t brake right before there was a bend in the road. There was not a state trooper on the other side of that bend that passed me right by.

Nope nope nope.
