Default Almost got into a car accident today

I was listening to music on the radio, like I usually do, to keep me calm while driving. I didn't realize that a firetruck was right behind me with its lights flashing and siren on. It honked and I pulled over to the right in a panic. After it passed, I quickly moved back into my lane. I wasn't looking ahead to see that another car in front of me was doing the same thing... luckily I swerved around them. If I had been just 1 second later in reacting, I would have rear-ended them.

I'm still feeling rattled about it. Experiences like this make me think I'm not fit to be on the road. I feel like such a fucking idiot. I'm so angry at myself right now.

Consider yourself lucky but make a promise not to repeat such thing. No doubt we all are humans and will do such things, but it’s important to stay safe.

why would I make a promise I can't keep? I'm a fucking screw-up. It's bound to happen again. Hopefully it kills me next time so I don't have to suffer this existence anymore.

driving test in exactly 1 week. I procrastinated and didn't practice very much. I feel so unprepared. I'm scared out of my mind right now.

I've done the exact same thing before, and this was after having my license for a good 5 years. Live and learn. Doesn't mean you'll be perfect in the future, you just know what to be cautious of.
