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

For about the last year or so, we’ve been running a column here at Jalopnik called Countersteer. Every Tuesday, we’d ask you guys a question, you’d answer in the comments and every Monday, we’d collect our favorites responses from the previous week and package them, nice and neat, into a post for you.

The questions we ask have to do with a variety of topics, including car ownership, driving, habits, opinions and culture, to name a few. We try to find topics where people have personal stories, because those are always the most fun.

These were some of our favorites of this year.

Can someone explain the illegal part in shadowpryde’s story. It revolves around almost getting arrested. But for what? It sounds like they were detained for some reason and let go bc they weren’t actually doing anything illegale?

kinda confused.
