When I was in the car with my mother when I was a child, she would occasionally say "oh, we're out of gas," and then would drive to the gas station. I thought that when the car ran out of gas, it would only allow you to drive to the gas station, but nowhere else, or even that it would drive there automatically.

When I was little, I thought that cars were psychic. It blew my mind that every time we came up on a turn, the car would blink this little arrow telling the direction we should turn, and we always turned that way! I was very disappointed when I found out that my father was responsible for the blinker coming on, not the car itself. :D

I used to believe that any time I rode with my parents in a car that we were actually in an actual race. I also used to picture my grandmother and all my family members listening to the race on the radio at home.

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 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.
