* Koji Kabuto from ''Anime/MazingerZ''. He is a not a bad driver. Oh, no. In fact, when he drives he is the only person on the road is absolutely safe. He is a BadassBiker who believes traffic regulations are mere suggestions, limit speed is a myth and bikes were made to pull crazy stunts with them.

* Maya Amano, from ''{{Persona 2}}''. ** Apparently, anyway. Her driving is so bad that its infamy persists across the AlternateUniverse in the sequel, where Ulala tells her, "Oh no, you don't! I've had enough of your driving!" ** It's not quite an InformedAbility: in ''Innocent Sin'' the party lets Maya drive the blimp from the Air Museum and she crashes it. She did so badly that in ''Eternal Punishment'', Tatsuya insists that Jun drive the blimp instead. When the time came for ''someone'' to drive a minisub, Tatsuya immediately volunteers so Maya won't even try. This is, apparently, due to Maya thinking her driving license applies to ''any'' vehicle, and her belief she's good enough to pull it off. The screams say otherwise. ** Maya also tries to drive a boat in the last dungeon in ''Innocent Sin'', and crashes into every rock along the way before the party asks Tatsuya to take over for her.

* Canadian pianist Glenn Gould was famously a terrifying person with whom to drive. "It's true that I've driven through a number of red lights on occasion," he once remarked, "but on the other hand, I've stopped at a lot of green ones but never gotten credit for it."

* '''Creator/NgaioMarsh's''' Agatha Troy from the ''Inspector Alleyn Mysteries'' series tends to drive [[TheAllegedCar her van]] through the countryside in a manner that most of her (well-bred) passengers ask her if it would be alright to take over driving. Her TV incarnation, played by Creator/BelindaLang is arguably worse, driving said van worth of the infamous Moose Test. Curiously, the only one not bothered by her driving is Alleyn himself.

I felt that this is something so important that it needs additional emphasis.
DontTryThisAtHome, even if you are licensed to drive, as it can lead to loss of your right to do so, higher insurance rates, injury, or worse.

* Subverted by Hiyori in ''{{Sketchbook}}'', who ''intends'' to demonstrate some wild driving to her students, but forgets to disengage the handbrake, resulting in travel down main roads at approximately ten miles an hour at best. She doesn't even realise why they were going so slowly until the group are on the way back.

* Nurse Youko from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}''. Hearing one single, high-pitched, utterly ''terrified'' scream from Midori as Youko drives away should clue you in.

You know this type of person. They see yield signs as merely friendly suggestions. They think [[DaveBarry yellow means "proceed while gesturing"]] and [[Creator/DenisLeary red lights mean "stop... if you want to"]]. Orange construction signs are to them [[UnstoppableRage what red is]] [[BullSeeingRed to a bull]]. They curse out the oncoming traffic for not diving off the shoulder fast enough. They refuse to use signals, so they won't give away their plans to enemy drivers. They absolutely do not give one lonely mountain-dwelling [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]] about the rules of the road--''especially'' not speed limits. They will probably have a lot of near misses and cause other drivers to have accidents (while avoiding any major crashes themselves), their car will be covered in dents, any passengers are in for a traumatic experience... and woe betide any driver who ''dares'' to pass them.

[[DiscreditedTrope To the extent that it is still a living trope]], this is often a stereotype of [[WomenDrivers female]], {{Asian|Drivers}}, Southern Europeans, and elderly drivers. In Russia, this is associated with Caucasian drivers[[note]]as in, [[YouKeepUsingThatWord from the Caucasus Mountains]], not the commonly used term for white people in the rest of the world[[/note]].
