First Car Accident

When I came back this evening, my boy ran to me and told me he had an accident. I thought he hit someone. No, he hit the steel wire rope by the lamp-post. He had actually driven the car around and he wanted to park the car nicely near the wire rope. He was supposed to press the brake. Instead he pressed the accelerator and bang! Look at the dented front..

My boy was worried as he knew his father would surely scold. I myself had scolded him. When I went back to the shop, I didn't tell his father at all until the time when we were dismissed. At the front door, I showed him the photo and told him not to get angry..

He must be angry but I went home quickly. My boy was still waiting for his father's return but till now he's still not back yet.

Well, I'm sure everyone of us had our first experience. I had my first accident when I used my late FIL's car to a school for my STPM. I had finished my art test earlier. So I left the classroom and started the car. I was reversing the car without looking at the side. My car scratched the car on my left. I had to call my BIL as my husband was doing his sales outstation. When he came, he took me and the other car's owner to a workshop and I owed my BIL RM100 for the repair.

  3. His deep concern speaks well to his character and good family. We all learned the serious responsibility of driving this way. He will now avoid big stupid risks! Happily!

  16. I hope his father did not scold him yesterday night and also today. When you wrote about your accident experience during STPM, were you sitting for STPM or were you a teacher invigilator during STPM?

  18. You know what I always say about involving in car accidents? ‘Most importantly is no one gets hurt, as for the cars, we can deal with them later'.
    Yes, I did have a few times of car accidents but thank God nobody was hurt, only scratches and need to pay for fixing.

    I think your boy is scared enough, and he did not do it on purpose, you should not have scolded him, hehe~

  19. Well, talking about the accidents, let me tell you the fact that if the person is cautious and take full safety precaution then his chances of meeting any accident get down to 1/4

  21. Incidents like this normally happens to those people who have just started to learn how to drive. The car might have had minor scratches, but it was a good thing that your son wasn't hurt. I hope that he isn't that traumatized after what happened. At the very least, it was a learning experience; teaching him the importance of safe and responsible driving.
