I used to believe that the potholes in the road could just be flipped over and flattened out so that they could be fixed. Little did I know that road workers actually filled the potholes in.

I used to think that if the colour of a car was gold, it meant the owners must be really rich. After all, they had managed to make a car out of gold. Now, I know its just tacky.

When I was a kid my mom used to tell us "You need to buckle up in case we have an accident" I used to think that if we didn't buckle up it would -cause- the car to have an accident and I would start screaming whenever the car started moving before I got my belt on.

I was riding with my dad in his truck when I was 4. We hit a pothole and he exclaimed "You could lose a tire in that!"

I spent quite a few years terrified that potholes were very deep holes that our tires might just fall into.

i used to think that to drive somewhere you had to remember how and when to turn the steering wheel at exactly the right points, as if there were no roads. So i remember when my mum would be driving to places i would think i would start learning how to get to whereever we were going and think
''ok so it turns right a bit, then left a lot, then nothing for a while'' e.t.c... hahahahaha

When I was in the car with my mother when I was a child, she would occasionally say "oh, we're out of gas," and then would drive to the gas station. I thought that when the car ran out of gas, it would only allow you to drive to the gas station, but nowhere else, or even that it would drive there automatically.

When I was a small child, I believed the police would hide in the tops of trees in the medians of busy interstates and roads, and if you were speeding they would take you out with their sniper rifles.
