This is a d100 table of Things That Happen If You Fail Your Handling Check while driving across the mutated wasteland. It only has 50 results so far. If you feel like helping out, write in some more results in the comments and number them starting with 51 and going up. If you only wanna do 1 or 2 that's fine...
It'll probably get used tomorrow.
("dex or d4" means make a dex or pp roll to avoid taking d4 damage. Seat belts prevent this unless otherwise noted. )
(flip a coin or something to see if you go left or right, if applicable.)
1-skid 40 feet, stall.
2-skid, spin 180, stay in same lane.

17-pop a side wheelie and come down hard. roll again.
18-catch some air, come down. make another handling check.
