I saw a nice example of being careful yesterday.
This guy was behind me with a bright red 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am; it looked great.
At the light he went into the left turn lane (he was alone) and made a U-turn; however, he did not cut the wheel enough or couldn't cut it anymore and did not cover the full turn. He stopped as his car was facing the curb, and (I could tell it was a manual) put it in reverse. He looked a bit embarressed, so he hit it hard backward, and threw it into, most likely, second or third. The problem was it had rained earlier, and the road was quite wet. He hits the heck out of the gas, and, go figure, his tires spin. He doesn't let off, he spins towards the curb badly; I swear he was a half an inch away, fishtailed back over toward the medium, yet again a half an inch away, fishtailed about 40 degrees sideway, and, after cutting into the opposite lane (on a large bridge-hill) managed to pull it back together.
I swore he was going to wreck badly.
