  1. Oh boy, I am still shaking, just escaped a MAJOR ACCIDENT! Was coming home from parents, ONE BLOCK from home, in close to freezing conditions, in a relatively dark main street, a FREAKING HUGE VAN (80s) with NO WORKING HEADLIGHT pulled in front of me from the oncoming lane to turn left (illegally). I was going at around 60-65Kmh (40ish miles) and he pulled 20-30 feet in front of me. I HAVE NO IDEA how he couldn't see me, this was under a bridge column and it's possible I was in his blind spot. I immediately slammed on brakes and got into ABS, just realizing that there's no way I can stop the car before I hit the van (he didn't stop), so while braking swevred to the left lane and missed him BY A WHISKER! It would have been a horrible T-bone accident otherwise. This was the closest call I've had in 10 years (college), when I put my MK3 Golf without ABS into a light pole in very similar situation, but that time car didn't steer at all and went straight ahead! Amazingly, I practiced a similar accident avoidance manouver 3 weeks ago in Quattrofest (brake hard and change lane by following a green light). Oh boy, feel lucky and wanted to share. Porsche amazing handling, ABS and Driving school literally saved my life (or at least my car). I know most 911 guys track their car, but if anyone haven't tried driving school, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ONE! Totally makes the difference between accident and coming home safe! Cheers... gonna crack a beer now!
