5 Common Car Superstitions
Are you a superstitious driver? It’s Friday the 13th, so lets take a look at 5 strange yet most common car superstitions.
It is believed that if a bird poops on your vehicle, you may receive good luck and riches. Next time you find a bird dropping on your vehicle, test your luck and play the lottery. Feel free to share if you win 😉
Holding your breath
Many drivers and passengers hold their breath when passing a cemetery. The myth behind this is to prevent the spirits of the recently deceased from entering your body. Do you hold your breath when driving past a cemetery?
The practice known as “car coining” is when a few coins are tossed onto the floor of a newly purchased vehicle as a sign of good luck. Whether or not it brings you good luck, having spare changes is never a bad thing.
Scratching your new car
Some drivers believe that you’re at a higher risk of getting into an accident in your new car. For that reason, some believe that you should scratch or dent your brand new car yourself to reduce the likelihood of more damage in the future. We believe buying a used vehicle is a better alternative, just saying.
Some people slap their sun visor, some kiss their fingers, and others touch the ceiling. Why? They say it helps bring good luck, avoid bad luck, or just a simple gesture of triumph for squeaking through the light without getting in an accident or being pulled over.
