I used to believe our car had a brain and knew where we were going so it used turn signals to tell my dad when and which way to turn the steering wheel.

When I was younger I did a lot of traveling and being from a small town everywhere seemed massive. I always noticed the color of license plates and assumed that all plates that were one color were from my home town. So no matter where I was I could not believe how many people from my town were traveling to the same place at the same time!

I used to believe that the car knew where we were going because my dad always turned the way it was pointing to.

On day when I was little, I asked my mom why we always stop at the gas stations and she said, its because the car needs food so it could run. One day I felt bad that the car never got any dessert, so I put some left over cake in the engine.

I used to believe that my dad made the windshield wipers work by winking. Later I learned what interval wipers are.

When I was little, I thought our car knew where we were going. From the back seat all I could see when Mum was driving was the little green light flash, then I'd see her turning the steering wheel. So I just assumed we had driven this way so many times, the car knew exactly where we were going and indicated by itself!

When driving in a car my parents always honked the horn when we went through a tunnel, but I couldn't see that they were the ones honking. So up until I was about 6 or 7 I thought that tunnels honked when you drove through them.

When I was younger, I'd be in the car with my parents and they'd stop at a gas station and both go inside, while I waited in the car. I thought beyond a reasonable doubt that they switched keys with someone and the people who returned though looked like my parents weren't them, and I'd ask them where we were going, to make sure they weren't taking me some where strange.

I used to believe that turning signals were magical, or were controlled by your thoughts. I never noticed my mom using a little lever to activate them. I didn't figure this out until probably middle school when I finally just asked how they worked.

I used to think that gas was drilled like oil. "How lucky that two gas stations across the street found a well!" My 5-year old brain thought.

When I was 7 or so, I finally saw a tanker truck unloading gas at a station. I asked my dad about this strange occurrence...who informed me that gas stations had underground storage tanks. Mind Blown!

I thought when you drive you turn the steering wheel back and forth constantly since that's how it's depicted in cartoons usually

When I was younger I used to believe the blinkers in a car knew how to get where you were going and all you had to do was follow them. I could never figure out how they new where I was going.

I thought cars were like trains, essentially stuck to the road, always going the right way and somehow being controlled or something. I had no explaination for car crashes, however.

When I was younger I believed that instead of cars moving down the road, the roads moved the cars. Just like a giant conveyor belt.

As a child, I too thought that "don't drink and drive" applied to ALL drinks. I would freak out if the person driving took so much as a tiny sip of water.
