I tend to have an issue with speed....and stopping...and a few other things. I don't drive often and when I am with someone it is really for the best that I am the passenger. Screaming passengers are really distracting.

Just because one has a clean driving record, no speeding tickets or accidents doesn't make them a skilled driver. It may make then a good driver, that are lucky. Can't avoid accidents when they aren't your fault.

A skilled driver should be able to handle many situations. Example: various weather conditions (including snow, black ice etc), maneuver around objects while maintaining the same speed, and much more.

Go race stock cars and you'll see some skilled drivers.

My dad has had two accidents; one when my dad was waiting at the red light and a truck came speeding at the back and hit his car and the other was when a little boy suddenly came running into the road and the car turned and hit a wall. He has been pulled over for speeding twice. However, he’s driven through very difficult roads and taught most members of my family driving.

I can admit that my dad is somewhat pugnacious at times, but I think he’s a good driver.

Story of my life. The worst part of the cities here is that people never wait at a particular bus stop. They just stand on the banks of the road and stop a bus wherever they like, and do so every once in 5 minutes; and that’s why I always stay away from buses. They’ll literally stop anywhere.

I've logged a little over 4 million miles, many of them on Los Angeles Freeways. No accidents, but I've been caught using the HOV lane or shoulder to get around pokey out of town drivers. Haven't had a speeding ticket in a few years, but I'm probably due soon.

I'm a good driver and professionally trained but as I get older, I've found I don't see as well at night as I used to so am more cautious when I drive at night. I've only had 2 tickets in 48 years. One for 75 in a 65 and one for 155 in a 55. That one was expensive.

The only skill that matters is avoiding situations where you need skill.

Example: the airport has lots of places where drivers have to decide to go this way or that, and many drivers don't wake up until they get to where they have to change lanes violently. So you should avoid being side by side with another vehicle as you approach those places.

Example: If there are two left turn lanes, the drivers in the right lane drive as if it were the only lane, so don't get side by side with another vehicle in that situation, because you will get your fender bent.

I get it. It might not always be possible to avoid demanding situations, but I know it definitely is, at times. I’ve been through situations where I could’ve avoided a lot of maneuvers by being a little more sensible, which I’m not. I’m an insensible driver. -.-
