If you're a big talker when it comes to how good a driver you are, you probably don't have much proof to back up your claims. Maybe you'll rattle off the last time you were in a car accident or the last time you got a speeding ticket.
But are you as good a driver as you say you are? There's a really useful (and fun) interactive site that can gauge your reaction time to driving emergencies. It tabulates your "driving age."
It's called the Reaction Time Test (see photo). It simulates you in the driver's seat of a car.
You're driving down a road, when you see a big red hand flash in front of you. You have to put on the brakes. Then, the Reaction Time Test tells you how old you are, when it comes to driving.
If you're concerned about an aging parent who's driving, or a teenager who's about to get behind the wheel, the Reaction Time Test can help you have a discussion with them about your concerns. Or if you just want to silence a boastful spouse, have them take the test. It can be an eye opener.
