Take this driver's test. If you don't get 70%, please stop driving.....

    95 percent, apparently I'll be running over pedestrians at unmarked crosswalks.

    It's a pain to stop for them, I'll admit.

    But in the end it's easier than cleaning the blood and gristle off the fender.

    95 percent, but i'm disputing it. so, i want to turn left... i have to wait until i can't see any cars coming from the opposite direction before i can turn? bullshit. i'd be sitting there all goddamned day. i don't live out in the sticks.

    You really only earned a 90%. They just gave you the extra 5% to keep you from contesting and claiming you got them all right.

    70 percent, which is what I think I got on my test.

    I missed the left-turn one, the one about arrows on highways (never seen an arrow painted on a highway), the braking through a curve and whatever else.

    Same here, on both counts.

    I knew the slippery road one because it was my only miss for my driver's permit exam.

    80 percent. I haven't (knock on wood) been in an accident that was my fault in well over a decade, I drive safely by instinct.

    Though I admit, I totally fucked up an obvious question when I quickly answered the slow moving vehicle as a construction sign -- saw the orange and blew by it. Should have looked at it longer.

    85 percent. Gave pedestrians too much right of way and the questions about turning your wheels when parking and where to park if your tire blows (actually had that one rt. and changed it).

    Guess I'm OK as long as I dont' have to park!

    When I moved to St. Louis a few years ago to work for the Sporting News, I actually had to take the test. Hadn't even given it a thought since I was 16 and passed it the first time.

    I'm ashamed to admit I failed. Barely, but failed. Probably the only test I've ever failed in my life, ever. This is the first time I'm actually telling anybody. :)

    When I moved on and had to get my Canadian license back, I was petrified they'd make me take it again. I found a work-around. :) :)

    You didn't do any of the driving up to the SportsJournalists.com outing, did you?
