Driving Safety

My Story:

I'm a seventeen-year old driver that doesn't quite everything about driving, or soon I came to find out within the past couple of months. Everything in this passage is something I've been a part of or witness to while on and off the road. I like having fun wherever possible and the place I shouldn't have is in the car. I used to liked pushing the envelope whenever possible, showing off to friends was part of my motivation but most of it is because I think I can get away with it. I watch now as my friends' abuse their privilege of driving a vehicle on a day to day basis. Telling them again and again to be a more considerate driver and not such a jerk on the road, sometimes they listen but just like me they will have to learn the hard way.

When I first received my license at the age of 16 I did take necessary precautions when driving, you know the "Dos" and "Don'ts".

I did this maybe for a couple of months and pretty much all the time with my parents in the car but as the more driving hours added up so did my cockiness. Then when I turned 17 I nearly felt invisible to anything and every on and off the road, I thought this because I went a whole year without receiving a single ticket or mishap. My aggressive driving was mild, that is to say I was careful and somewhat considerate of other drivers, I never honked at anyone or screamed or yelled at them, but aggressive is dangerous none the less. As a result I received my first speeding ticket while driving back to pick up my brother up from college. I thought big deal...
