- + ABOUT ABOUT... > DRIVING A CAR ---------------------------------------- Everyone knows that under the age of 18 you are not allowed to drive a car. (except the American's that is...) Especially not your father's old car!!! My opinion is that you should start driving a car before your 18th birthday. For that reason I'll give you some --- tips. And now please enter the world of traffic jams! TIP 1 TIP 1 ,,,,, If you are stepping into a car for the first time in your young life, you have to know this: There are three pedals in the car. Taken from the left, the first one serves for the gear, next is the brake and the last but not least is the accelerator pedal. For a beginner, this is very complex, so I want to advise you!!! The accelerator pedal makes speed. The brake pedal is for cases of emergency. When should you use the brake? If the only thing you can see at the moment is a tree trunk - then use the pedal immediately! If you use it too late and hit a tree then run away. The thing with the gear still is not clear for me. When you switch a gear and you hear a strange noice, don't panic - - after a few seconds you won't hear that sound anymore. TIP 2 TIP 2 ,,,,, With your stick - not "that" stick, but the stick for non-English people at your right, and for the English people at your left - you change a gear. To make speed you have to know that the highest gear, the five, is for fast driving!! But don't make the mistake when you are at the 5th gear to go to the "R"!!! The "R" is not for Racing but for Reverse! Don't use the "R" when you are racing with your dad's car, otherwise you mess up the car's gearbox. TIP 3 TIP 3 ,,,,, Driving a car is a bit boring, and so we should think of something new. One of the possibilities is the point-race. It's a good solution when you drive the same road every day (to school) - so after a month you can compare your results! Use the following schedule for the game: - hitting a tree : 10 points - hitting another car : 15 points - running over a dog : 20 points - a dog behind your wipers : 25 points - hitting an aged person : 30 points - running over an aged person in a wheel chair : 35 points - hitting a group of playing children : 45 points - a cyclist in two pieces : 50 points You only get the points for a playing group when you hit 100%, everybody dead! The rules are not well known, you are allowed to hit the playing group more than one time. Try it out!!! Also you may add 25 points as a bonus when you hit a cyclist - but after being hit he/she has to make a salto! TIP 4 TIP 4 ,,,,, What can you do when there are some dents in your dad's silly old car? Try to kick the dents out. If there's a damage on the lac, then steal some colour pencils from your little sister. With the pencils you can repair the lac. If it doesn't work, blame your mother and say to your dad: "A woman behind the wheel." Nine times out of ten times it works, otherwise run for your life!!! THE END THE END.......... ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I hope that you like this chapter. And I want to thank Tonuwa RTD Wotnau for checking this chapter on grammar- and other mistakes. [you are a real scene friend for me] And I want to say to all of you: NEVER DRIVE CAREFULLY! NEVER DRIVE CAREFULLY! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, MUSIC : Wal Beben That is all folks!!!
