32 years driving. Lots of cars and trucks, a bunch of motorcycles. I will not count dirt bikes or any offroad activities. I was rear-ended once in my old Sentra. I made a left turn with my Neon into an SUV with no lights on (at night and that driver was a cop's wife, I lost bigtime), both of us drove away with minimal damage. All other vehicle damage was my cars being backed into in parking lots. I was run off the road once on a motorcycle, a little rash but no real damage to me, and the bike wasn't seriously damaged.

And I've never had an accident/incident with company or work vehicles ranging from golf carts to heavy equipment.

OK, seemingly thousands of close calls. I drive with a motorcyclist's awareness. I expect the worst of other driver's around me. And they usually fulfill my expectations.

I don't text, rarely talk on the cell anyway. I don't have a bumpin' stereo to drown out all sounds, and my window tinting is legal. I use all three mirrors, and scan gauges, mirrors and left and right frequently. I don't watch the car in front of me exclusively, I'm looking about 3 seconds down the road in town, and 10 seconds on the highway.
