For a couple years as a little kid, I believed that in certain cars you would peddle like a bicycle to move it because my aunt told me that the car had peddles! I always wondered how she got up the steep hills so easily.

I used to believe that the arch shaped gray lines on the road were made from a massive truck swerving up and down it. I had it in my head that this was an integral part of the road making process. Last year I realized that they were just the shadows from the electric lines above.

When I was younger, part of my family lived in thise old town that had mainly brick roads. My brother told me when I was about 4 that the brickroads were hollow. I've always pictured.. like a big ol' sewer system. Anyway, I was smart enough to know that cars were heavy ol things.. but i wasn't smart enough to not believe my brother.
I used to sit in the back seat with my eyes clentched and tears streaming down my face.. When I told my parents.. they just laughed..

Well, now I am 31.. and I am smart enough to know my brother was full of crap.. but i still have panic attacks, and start to tear up when driving over them.. Not to mention I speed like crazy down them!

I used to believe that ghost drivers, were cars droven by actual ghosts or by itself, just as in the cartoons. I never really thought of the name until recently when it was in the news.

I used to believe that when you took your foot off the gas, the brake lights would go on. I'm still not completely convinced this isn't true...how would I know? I can't see the back of my own car while I drive :P

When I was little my brothers told me that if you opened all the doors of a car at once then it will fly away. I didn't really like the sound of that one.

Growng up I lived in a house at the end of a cul-de-sac and the streetlight was pretty near my window. Well, every night the light from the streetlight would change from a yellow-orange to white and move across my room. I didn't know why this happened, but for some reason it didn't scare me. I think I was 12 when I figured out it was just my neighbor coming home late from work and his headlights shining in my window as he followed the curve of the cul-de-sac to get to his house.

I used to think that blind people could drive as long as they had their blinkers on because the car would tell them which way to turn.

Or extended family used to go on camping trips in a state park in western New York every two years and one year the heater in our cabin broke. When I asked my mom if we could just sleep in the car all night, she said no because then we might never wake up. She then explained that car heaters worked differently than house heaters and if they weren't moving they gave off a poisonous gas.
Until I was about 12, I would hold my breath when our car stopped at a stoplight in the winter because I thought if I breathed too much, I would fall asleep and stay asleep forever.

I used to believe when I was little that to get from one level to another in a parking garage, your car was pulled by a giant crane-like lever up to the next level. To this day I still do not understand the construction of parking garages.

When I was little my mom told me to look "up and down" before crossing the street. So, I would look up at the sky and down at the ground and THEN look left and right fo any cars! LOL!

When I was a child, I used to believe that, being an adult, I would never find driver school. Thus, every time I was discovering one in the street, I was concentrating to remember it.
