My Grandpa told me to never fall asleep in a car because I'd die from the carbon monoxide. While this could be true with a massive degree of CM poisoning, he made it soudn like just falling asleep would kill me!

When I was little, I would always yell at my dad for drinking pop or water when he was driving. I always thought that when people said that it was bad to "drink and drive", I thought it meant that ALL drinking and driving was bad. I didnt realize that it meant just alcoholic drinks.

Ever since I was a toddler, my family was fond of Toyotas. We've gone through a few cars since then, but one of my best memories was about our Oldsmobile when I was around 3 years of age. Whenever we went on trips, I'd marvel at all the cars that went faster and passed us, or were stuck behind us because I thought that our car only had one speed it could go on the highway, and that was it. I'd snicker at the cars that were slower and forever stuck behind us, and sulk whenever other cars whizzed by. It never occured to me that all the vehicles -- us included! -- had gas pedals and brakes!

On our long trips from Michigan to Massachusetts to see relatives, I would try to sleep for as long as I could because I believed time changed and went incredibly fast when you were asleep. I wondered what happened to the other people in the car when this happened.

I used to believe that gas (like the kind you put in a car) was really grass. My mom and dad were curious as to why I put grass in my toy car and I was curious as to why the paid for "grass" when they could just get it in the backyard!

I used to believe that there were little mice in the door of a car that rolled the window up and down. When I traveled in my grandparent's car and they had manual windows, i thought that the mice were tired so we had to do it ourselves. I believe it was either my dad or grandpa that told me this.

When I was very young, I always thought that when my family went on car trips, that my step dad only sat in the driver's seat and that the car somehow knew where to go and took us to those places. Boy, did I ever feel dumb when I finally found out the truth! Dad,I miss you and Thanks for being my dad!

When I was younger my mother told me and my siblings that the emergancy light button in the car was really a button that would explode the car if you pushed it. One day my mom left us all in the car while she went into the gas station. My mom had told my little brother that the button really didn't do that (but the rest of us didn't know that) and he pushed the button. We all jumped out of the car and started crying until our mom came back. We told her what had happend and she had to sit on the sidewalk from laughing so hard.

When I was a kid and I went into the car with my dad, I'd always roll down the window and it annoyed him, so eventually he locked it. I thought that I had made the window mad and if I waited long enough it would forgive me. I waited one year and then tried the window again, and lo and behold, it worked.

One afternoon I was sitting on the porch watching the occasional car go by, not being able to see the drivers. I then decided to count how many moving cars I could spot that were driving on their own.

When I was in primary school, probably about five or six, our PE teacher told our class that speed humps were little kids who had refused to do PE and who he had put there to punish them.

For the longest time I used to try and look down the ends of speed humps, looking for the kid!

When I was about 5 or 6 my mum and I got in a car wreck when the wheel slipped on a sheet of ice. We did 1 or 2 360s that my mum called donuts later when she was explaining to the family what happened. So, for years when I would tell the story I would tell everyone that one time my mum and I got into a wreck because we slipped on a donut that was left on the side of the road. My mum still picks on me for it.
