Is there anything more inherently dangerous than driving a car on a daytime soap? Our very unscientific research has found that roughly one in every three driving excursions shown on a soap results in a crash or a near-crash. Usually when characters are arguing, distracted by grief, under the influence, or are transporting fragile spheres of biotoxin in their stomachs.
"General Hospital" has been particularly prone to the effects of daytime car crashes. Some of the biggest plot twists in the show's history have been the result of car crashes -- arguably none bigger than drunken A.J. Quartermaine driving himself and his brother Jason into a tree, damaging Jason's brain, and creating the unemotional mob enforcer we love today.
This week, we're in for another momentous car wreck, this time with Claudia Zacchara. Who's behind the wheel of the car that hits her? You'll have to watch for the answer to that one.
In light of all this, you're probably asking yourselves what kind of shoddy driver's education they have in Port Charles. Lucky for you, then, that we here at SOAPnet.com have obtained an excerpt from the Port Charles driving exam. We think it offers a bit of insight into what kind of drivers are menacing the roads in P.C.
