    1 do you drive a car, truck, suv, van....

    Car. Never had a truck, van, or suv.

    2 do you buy new or used?

    I always bought used older cars when I was younger and didn’t have the money. Then, I bought three new cars. The last three cars I bought were year old ones with low mileage. I don’t put much mileage on my cars, so I figured that was a good way to go and it saves me a lot.

    3 how often do you change vehicles?

    About every 4 years or so.

    4 do you have a favorite vehicle color?

    No. I’ve had white, maroon, blue, silver, green

    5 how much did gas cost the last time you filled?

    $3.05 for regular.

    6 how many miles do you drive in a year?

    About 10,000

    7 do you go through yellow lights?

    Sometimes

    8 how about red lights?

    Once in a while. Not on purpose, usually.

    9 ever gotten a ticket?

    Only 3.

    10 what did you do?

    I was speeding and got a $200 ticket. The cop said he was chasing me for 2 miles, but I didn’t even realize he was after me. Another time I was driving in the breakdown lane because my exit was coming up and there was a traffic jam. A cop was hiding in the brush. Also, I was accidentally in a lane that could only take a left hand turn, and I didn’t want to, so I veered over into the right lane. A cop was in a McDonald’s parking lot and he got me.

    11 do have any bad driving habits?

    Speeding and tailgating.

    12 what do you think of hybrids?

    I’d like a hybrid the next time I buy.

    13 do you prefer to drive or would you rather someone else drive?

    I prefer to drive.

    14 are you a backseat driver?

    Very much so.

    yeah, it's hard for me not to "help" - "GIT YOUR ASS OVER IN THE RIGHT LANE" and "IT AIN'T GONNA GET ANY GREENER" and "THE SPEED LIMIT IS 70, IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOUR CAR?" and other helpful commentary
