your right we don't know you. but i knew my self as a 14 year old. when i drove my moped ,yeah i know not legal get over it. I thought i was a good drive I thought I was safe and responsible. actually your thoughts remind me a lot of myself back then. and guess what i had been riding since I was 8 on the streets and have lived away from my parents at points so don't think you some how are actually more responsible or a better driver than me.
I didn't realize till i was 16 and was an ok driver how easy it is to get killed. some lady pulled out of a side street in front of me when i had the right of way, saw me, then panicked and stopped. solution? what you don't have one in under a second o well guess your dead. if slamming on the brakes was the first thing that came to mind your very badly injured. if you couldn't come up with some thing with in a second then there ends the life of some sweet kid don't worry after you are dead we will all say nice things about you.
trust me ride a bike. i rode mine 5 miles to school every day from 5th grade until i got my moped.
