When I was younger and I was traveling in the car I liked to stick my hand out of the window and feel the air push on it. My father told me that if I did that then a man on a motorbike would ride past and chop my hand off with an axe. And I haven't done it since.

Am I the only person who turns off windscreen wipers when driving under bridges, irrespective of how narrow or high the bridge is. It makes me laugh every time. I guess my belief is that its saving something in the long run.

I was at least 8 or 9 before I finally realised that the exhaust pipe didn't actually push the car along like a small jet, and that the engine made the wheels turn instead.

I once believed that cars would not move, only the streets and ground. I believed with all land transprtation apart from bikes, ect. Apparently, my mother believed the same thing when she was a child.

I used to believe that my dad kept a mini cooper in the boot of his volvo, because one night when he came home in a mini rather than his normal volvo he explained he kept it there and in an breakdown situation took it out and "pumped it up" as a spare car!

When I was a little kid, (6 and under,) I believed that all you had to do was hold the stearing wheel, and the car would automaticaly go.

My dad told me that I could make the windshield wipers go on in his car- all I had to do was say "now!". Little did I know he had control of them. Darn. He also told me I could change a red light to green by saying "red light green light 1 2 3". He was just watching the lights for the other direction go red and telling me when to 'work my magic'.

I used to think that once you learned how to drive, you automatically knew the directions to everywhere. I never understood why my brother would always get lost.

I used to think there were invisible people so I was always looking for cars moving with no one sitting in the front seat!

when i was younger i used to believe that the 'slippery when wet' sign on the side of the road meant that when you drove there your tires would fall off and the strings that held them on would hang out. until i was 13 i was terrified to go past one of those signs.

From when i was about 4-13 (and still today i kinda do this) i used to play in the front yard or backyard and that when the cars passed and they saw you the ppl in them would come and get you! So everytime i saw a car or heard one coming while i was out there i would ruuuun as fast as i could either in the garage or to the door or at least to the other side of the house. Everyonce in a while i get that feeling again and i take off running.
teehee...

When I was 6 I believed that the lights that come off of the cars were like magnets, and you and the next car are being pulled together.

When I was about 5 or 6, my dad had this really old car called 'The Nova'. I loved that car so much, I hugged it before going to school. Then, when I was 7, my family said that the Nova was put into storage. I thought everything was dandy and fine since the Nova was in a storage place. I was 11 when I finally found out it went to the dump. I still love that old car...

i'm not sure what category this would go in, but i always thought that rear view mirrors in cars had to be positioned very exactly and that it was really hard to adjust a rear view mirror just right. as a little kid i would always freak out if i accidentally bumped or moved it out of position.
