funny you should describe it that way, Mark.

My wife took her out for her first driving lesson at a closed department store parking lot waaay back this past spring. She designated certain portions of the wide-open parking lot as building, some as active roadways, some as filled parking lots, etc.

Jessie did a pretty good job until Evey said, "That's good. Pull into this space and I'll take over and drive us to Baskin Robbins for ice cream."
As Jessie was pulling into the parking space, she became momentarily confused and pressedthe gas instead of the brakes! Shocked
After driving halfway up onto a landscaped island, she wouldn't get behind the wheel for at least 6 months. At least she's a very careful driver now.

Good thing she never heard the story of my first driving experience at 12 or so and being allowed to move dad's truck in the driveway. Fortunately, you can't build up a lot of momentum in 2 or 3 feet and cars from the early 70's didn't have airbags... Rolling Eyes

Riding lawnmowers: Was on one from somewhere around my 10th birthday, putting around while working --
Then there's Go-Carting that gives a hand learning control ---

On a mower, new drivers can learn while earning a few cents here and there ---

My wife's friend's 16 year old son accidentally drove right through the center post of their garage (same thing; brake/gas pedal confusion when parking). Luckily, it wasn't the primary load-bearing post, but the house did sag a little and it was an expensive fix. He didn't want to drive for a while after that.
