Ooh what a q.........

I've been driving since 1972,
I've had a license (off and on, mostly on) since 1976.
I've had more accidents than all the previous posters combined.

All my fault.

I used to drive like tomorrow was the end of the world, and I have the scars to show for it. Scars on my skin, under my derma, on my bones, in my organs. I've totaled 5 cars, 2 were endo's. Speed limits were for losers, and I was always trying to win.
I do not recommend any one drive like that.
I've had my license revoked, suspended, or taken away for traffic infractions and insurance neglections and whatever else I was wrong doing at the time.
I took longer than most to "Grow Up".
I haven't had a ticket in 10 years, or an accident in 15.
I will try to keep it that way for the rest of my life.
If someone asks for specifics, I will start a thread about my own youthful stupidity, where, I will try to recollect all the dumbness I can and regale you of the wisdom gained through pain
(sometimes excruciating) and experience.
(I may do that anyway, my therapist says journaling is a good way to get out the bad experiences and deal with them in a nonthreatening way.)
