If we were ever driving and there were more cars going to opposite direction of us, than there were going to same direction, I would always think there was a Tyrannosaurus Rex where we were going and that's why everyone was leaving...

When I was little my mom, brother, and I went to the store, and as we parked I jumped out of the car and ran around to greet my mom. Well it was a busy parking lot and she was mad that I would run out in the street...so as we were walking, I was holding my brother (6yrs older) and mom's hand and we passed an oil/grease spot in which my mother stopped and pointed to. She then told me that those were the markings of little kids who had run out in parking lots and got ran over and how sad the parents must be. My brother began to cry and I simply said "oh" as we were walking there was a large spot in which I shouted, "Look mama that must have been a big kid!!" I never ran out in parking lots again....

I used to believe that the rumble strips on the side of the road were the trunks of elephants living underneath that got angry when you drove on them.

When I was four I thought that you put one gallon of gas in a car so when my mom was outraged that gas was up to $2 I told her to just buy half a gallon then it will only cost $1

My parents tried to explain to me what is a spark plug in a car. After that I believed that it's a candle because it ignites the fuel. And that if you open car's hood you may accidentally blow it.

When we went on a trip an it was raining, spark plug somehow stopped working when big truck splashed us with water. It was totally logical for me because i imagined little candle being doused with water.
Believed it for soooo many years.

You know how some cars have wheels with hub caps, and you would see the black rim if you took the hub cap off? I thought someone told me that this rim was called a mud flap.

I later told this to one of my teachers, who had two wheels on her car with missing hub caps, and she finally told me what mud flaps actually are.

My mum was driving me to school one day when a BMW sped past really fast and went through a red light. She shook her head and said "BMWs don't have any brakes". From then on i thought they really didn't have any brakes and was worried every time I saw one.

For obvious reasons, I thought "car pooling" meant riding in a car that was able to go underwater. This made perfect sense to me -- since roads could not be built over lakes, having a car that could just cut through the lake would reduce the amount of time spent traveling. So when our teacher asked my class to vote on if we wanted to "use car pooling" for our first grade field trip, I enthusiastically raised my hand. I remember asking the chaperone (a classmate's mom) when we were going to go underwater several times. I think I spent at least a half hour staring out the window, looking for any nearby bodies of water.

My sister and I used to believe that you could drink petrol because everytime we stopped at a petrol station, our Mum would say "I'm just going to give the car a little drink of petrol because its getting a bit thursty".

I used to believe that car lights were actually eyes like on those old commercials. They all looked like pretty legit faces to me and welcome i walked past one parked, i would stare at it and run past it quick so it couldnt run me over. I believed this for years!

I used to believe that if you let the rev counter in a car reach the red section, the car would explode. My Dad used to have great fun terrifying me!

When I was little, I heard some one say that you should "never drink and drive." A few days later, I saw my mom drinking a diet soda while driving, and I threw a fit. She told me that you're allowed to drink non-alcoholic drinks while driving. I had no clue what that meant. The next day I went into school and announced that my mom drinks and drives. My mom ended up with a nice little call from my teacher.

Between the ages of six and fourteen I believed that all you had to do to pick up a car and throw it in the air was know exactly what spot on the car to to grab - all because I saw a man do it on The Simpsons.

One day when I was a little kid in the car with my dad, I noticed the the flashing arrows (the turn signal) on the dashboard, and that we would turn after the arrow started to flash. I thought the arrows were telling us where to go, and I was so surprised that our car could do that.

I used to belief that all the cars were controlled by conveyer belts. And that's how they all would stop and go at the same time.

Because of cartoons, I thought that to drive you'd just turn the steering wheel back and forth constantly.

I used to believe the white and yellow lines on the roads were for passengers to grab onto and slow the car down if they thought the driver was going too fast.
