Did a 180 Degree turn on a one lane highway stretch!

Yup! You heard it. A 180 degree turn on a one lane stretch of a highway and a car behind me.

It happened on thanksgiving day and I was very thankful that year that I survived and my car had no damage.

My Toyota Camry had a tranny that was burning the oil. So I just kept changing the tranny oil until I could afford to get the tranny fixed.

The guy who did it that time didn't realize that the gasket for the tranny fluid drain plug was old and he did not tighten it enough causing the fluid to leak out slowly.

That combined with the rain that day and that particular turn on the highway caused my 180.

When I made the turn, I lost control of my vehicle and the 180 happened.

The guy behind me honked at me. Like I woke up on thanksgiving day and decided to end it all.

That's my wildest street story.

Lol.. the same thing happened to me last year but in my Civic and thankfully not my Intrepid. I felt SO lucky. I was messing with the stereo, NOT paying attention to the road and I veered to the right which is desert "drifting sand" so I immediately turned the steering wheel to the left and that's when I did the 180 ONTO the opposing lane. I just turned the car around onto my lane and pulled over. I was lucky there were no cars in either lane.
