  •    I'm from Louisville,Kentucky home of
       the KentuckyDerby and my favorite
       team is Renault.Favorite drivers are
        Fisi,Trulli,and Button

    Have you seen Nicky Hayden there?? He is called "Kentucky Kid" because he comes from the same region as you. ;)


    Nicky is from Owensboro,a little over a 100
    miles fom Lousiville
    How much is 100 miles converted into kilometres? we don't use miles in my country. Nicky has great homesites (www.nickyhayden.com) and i visit there very often. I thought if you have seen him in motorshow near your town. :DntKnw:

  • 100 miles is about 160 km.

  • It is not so far! I know that in USA distancies are very long. But you have good traffic network there and almost everyone has own car. What age you can get driving licence there? In my country you must be 18 years old.

  • Dare, 16 years old is rather young to get driver's licence. I have one book written by Fisico and Leo Turrini (journalist) "Ma chi ti ha dato la patente?" (Mondadori) In english: "Who gave you the driver's licence?" It is written only in italian, it took me one week to read that book. Fisico told in that book too when he got driver's licence, he drove too fast and didn't ignore so much about traffic rules. the faster, the better! :tease: Anyway, now he has attended with a project that warns young drivers to drive too fastly in traffic, also keep seat belts. Every death in traffic is useless if it is avoided with right traffic education and own behaviour.

  • I had my learner's at 15, and got my drivers license a few weeks after I turned 16.  I've had my share of speeding tickets, been hit by more than a few other cars (none serious).  I don't think that waiting until 18 would have made any difference.  As with everything, it depends on the individual, and how mature they behave.  To date I caused one small accident, and although technically it was my fault, I blame the other driver's hesitation (hesitating at a yellow light to turn left and then at the last second slamming on the brakes when I was right behind, about to follow through the light). 

    Here in Switzerland, you can get a license for a moped or scooter (max 50cc) when you are 14, but have to wait to drive a car until you are 18.  On the other hand, a 14 year old can walk into a bar and drink beer or wine (have to wait until you are 18 for the hard stuff).  With that, I am on the fence - I'm not sure if it is better that you are introduced to alcohol before you can drive or after.

  • In Northern Ireland your can drive from 17 years old, although I might have started a couple of years younger.  ;) I had my first car, an Austin Mini when I was 15.

    As for the beer, you get it for being good at school.  :DD

  • I got my learners permit at 15 1/2, and my license a day or two after my 16th birthday. I could drive at a much younger age. In fact, I could hot wire my old man's Falcon by the time I was 14.

    I taught my daughter to drive when she was 13. In fact, she was doing bootlegger 180's in her mother's Plymouth Gran Fury in a vacant parking lot.  :yahoo:

  • I'd say with the number of Canadians and Americans frequenting this site, you'd better add Canada and the US as choices...it's not just all about England - even if USF1 was a big flop.   ;)

  • We've got a heat wave here in the hills. All the way up to 38 F (3C ). We're running around in shirtsleeves.

    I wonder if vem0 is computer generated.
