I used to believe that the brake pedal on inside of the car were the brake pads. So when someone said the pads were low, I'd look at the pedal and say, "No they're not!"

When I was 4 or 5 my Grandma told me while we were riding in the car, that If I didn't duck my head when we went under a bridge I would get a nasty bump
You know I ducked my head for years after she told me that, I think into my teens.

When I was a little girl and we were driving in the car, I always thought the signs in the residential areas that read "speed radar controlled" meant that my dad couldn't drive any faster than the speed limit because his car was controlled by a radar beam!

When I was little I heard my mom and her friends talking about "driving stick" shift but I didn't know what that was, so I imagined them balancing on walking sticks and hopping along.

When my mom told me "This car won't move until you buckle your seatbelt," I thought the car literally wouldn't move. Maybe there was some sort of electronic locking system that wouldn't let you put the car in gear if all the seatbelts weren't buckled, or something. It never occurred to me that she just meant she wouldn't drive it anywhere.

I had been at a low rider hydraulic car show when I was about 7 and I had noticed that all of the car badges were written in Italics. I then connected the two together and assumed that in order for a car to have hydraulics, the name had to be written in italics and any car that had italics, had to have hydraulics.

When I was a child, my Father told me that he had to go get a new "sticker" for his truck. The only "sticker" I knew of was a grassbur. I got into the truck, and asked him where the new sticker was. He pointed to a paper thing on the windshield. I asked him again where the "sticker" was, and was yelled at and hit.

When I was a kid we used to take a lot of road trips, and when we got stuck in traffic my mom would always say, "look at this traffic jam." I was about 4 or 5 and I would look at the window for "traffic jam" but didn't know what she was talking about. Then, while playing outside, I saw some puddles in the street with oil floating in them, and I came to the conclusion that this was "traffic jam". I told this matter-of-factly to all my friends in elementary school, until my older sister made fun of me for it.

I used to think that the actual lanes on the motorway (freeway) made the cars go faster - like the inside lanes had some mechanism to tell the car to go faster than the outside lanes.

There was a garage on our block with a sign above the door that said, "All cars must come to full stop." I thought that "Full Stop" was the name of the garage and that every car in the world was obliged to come to it at least once.
