Road Rage Quiz

Take the BOSD Road Rage Quiz:
 Add up your points, as indicated by the number next to your answer.

1)When driving, you don't want to be without:
0- your driver's licence and insurance card.
1- your booming loud stereo.
2- your loud voice for cursing out the other drivers.
3- your loud horn.

2)Turn signals:
0- are so important! Driving would be really dangerous without them!
1- are important to use when other drivers are on the road.
2- are important to use when there are cops around.
3- ruin that element of surprise!

3)The main use of the horn is:
0- for emergencies, such as to warn a child that you are coming if he runs out onto the street and doesn't see you.
1- to let someone know you are waiting outside their house...
2- to beep at someone who is about to back out of his driveway if you think he doesn't see you driving by.
3- to vent your anger at someone who cuts you off.

4)At a four way stop:
0- you have the right of way, but you'll wait for him to go just to be a little safer.
1- you have the right of way so you go.
2- you both got to the stop sign at the same time, so technically neither of you has the right of way, but you figure he'll wait, and you go first.
3- you slow down enough to make sure there are no cops around.

5)The light is turning yellow:
0- you were approaching the intersection slowly anyway, so you have plenty of time to stop.
1- you really wanted to make this light, but you'll wait for the next green.
2- you speed up to make the light. You are in a hurry after all.
3- if you close your eyes and don't see it turning red then it doesn't count as running a red.

6)The cop pulls you over:
0- oh my gosh it must be terrifying! It never happened to me.
1- my headlight is out.
2- I was speeding through a "yellow" light.
3- why can't they make up their minds? Last week they took my licence away and today they want me to show it to them?!?

7)You are in traffic court:
0- accompanying your friend. You can't imagine how scary it must be for her!
1- to show proof that you had your headlight fixed within 24 hours so your ticket comes off.
2- the lady at the desk is starting to look familiar.
3- the judge offers you a 3 for 1 special on your tickets.



8) Tailgating:
0- Is really dangerous. I don't know what people are thinking when they do it!
1- Is OK when you are following someone and you don't want to lose them, as long as you don't follow too close.
2- Can be useful from time to time.
3- Is the best tool to use when some little old lady decides to suddenly become all law-abiding right when YOU pull up behind her!


9) The light turns green and the person in front of you doesn't seem to realize. You:
0- just wait patiently. These things happen.
1- inch up a little, hoping he'll notice eventually.
2- lean on the horn.
3- swerve around him on the right, narrowly missing some pedestrians and a big wooden fence.


10)Your driving motto is:
0- "arrive alive, drive 25"
1- "this car is constipated; hasn't passed a thing all day"
2- "never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly"
3- "caution! I drive like you drive!"



Your Point Ranking:
0-5- Please stay at home.
6-10- You are the kind of people that irritate me when I am driving behind you. Please pull over and let me pass.
11-15-You should be taking some lessons on how to deal with irate drivers.
16-26- You aren't too bad. Just stay out of the left lane!
26-30-Caution! You drive like I drive!

Now tell me how you did. ;) I'll tell you soon....I need to find a calculator to add up all my points. :-D

This was really funny!

For some reason I have the inability to get road rage.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Really funny.

Something Different said...

Why isn't anyone sharing their points-c'mon! Don't be embarrassed. I haven't finished adding my points up yet but is somewhere in the 26-30 range. :-p

Something Different said...

Ok I am at 26 points....gosh!
My new motto should probably be:
"As a matter of fact I DO own the whole road"
lol

KT-can I offer you some private tutoring...at a discounted rate of course...

MIM-why do I have a feeling that's sarcastic?

KT said...

Of course you can. I hope you accept expired gift certificates!

My points are too embarrasing to share!

Mikeinmidwood said...

Something different

No it aint sarcastic, dont act on impulse.... hmmmm.... maybe thats why you drive like you do. lol. Okay Im kidding about the whole thing of you acting on impulse (besides who am I to talk about how people drive; my driving should be outlawed) and I wasnt being sarcastic, because I wasnt sarcastic when I wrote it, just tired (my words and thoughts go hand in hand).

Something Different said...

KT- No I don't. You'll have to find some alternate method of payment.
Lesson number one though, is as follows: Most people don't want to have their cars smashed up, so even if they have to slam on their brakes, they will stop for you. It's ok to cut into traffic. They'll get over it.

MIM-ok, whatever that means. I am glad to hear you can elate to my driving style. I would probably curse you out if we were on the road together though...LOL
And my diving is not impulsive...just decisive! :-p

halfshared said...

Oh, so you were that driver that was tail-gating me yesterday and honking her horn like her life depended on it? You should just know, I davka drove slower cuz of your attitude! Jk, I am a pretty fast driver although I like to think that I drive lawfully and politely.

Something Different said...

HS- my life really was depending on it! ;) but seriously, I don't honk much. Tailgating is much more my thing. My mother tells me that when she's driving with me her right foot starts hurting from "pressing the brakes" so much. Rofl.
If you were driving at least ten over I wouldn't have been tailgating too badly at all. Don't worry. :-D

Mikeinmidwood said...

Just curse out! I get payback, as in my insurance does a better job than yours.

Something Different said...

MIM-Problem is I am driving my father's car under his insurance and he never loses a chance to remind me of it. :(

Mikeinmidwood said...

That ruins the fun

Something Different said...

MIM- I don't drive with him willingly. I do it because I drive his cat, remember? A vicious cycle if I ever saw one....
(I usually try to make sure he's really tired so he can go right to sleep. ;)

Mikeinmidwood said...

sorry dont remember, do you mean cat as in cadillac?

Something Different said...

MIM- a typo. Was supposed to say car.

BigChamor21 said...

I'm sorry, but did you come up with this quiz on your own?

Something Different said...

BC21- Yes, I did. Is that problematic? No grade?

BigChamor21 said...

I can not grade for two reasons:
1)I do not drive
2)This whole thing looks too much like poetry

Something Different said...

BC- Poetry? omg you are soo off base with that. I mean....what?

BigChamor21 said...

Is it obvious that I am a bit high right now?

Something Different said...

BC- Ye, what did you take? ;-)

BigChamor21 said...

;) is right

Something Different said...

BC- R.O.F.L.
