I'm not going to say I haven't been tempted.

I was only tempted to jump out of a moving car once. Driving with a boyfriend who had, shall we say, some mental health issues. He was insecure and controlling and the few times I had tried to break it off in the past he had threatened suicide. What I was doing with him is still a mystery to this day - I was young and stupid and thought I could be a stable influence in his life (he'd had a pretty rotten childhood).

Anyway, we were driving to a friend's house for a surprise birthday party and we started arguing (he was pissed that a male friend of mine who he didn't like was going to be at the party). Suddenly he just started screaming and punching the dashboard over and over and started screeching that he was going to "crash this mutherf*cking car right now" and started speeding and driving erratically. Needless to say, I just froze and tried to let him calm down. I was honestly tempted to try and make a run for it but we were on a stretch of road where the speed limit was 80 km/h and he was easily going 110 (70mph). Finally he calmed down and I gently asked him to pull over because I thought I was going to be sick. We pulled into a gas station and I called a cab to take me home. He started to make a scene but some big guy who overheard our argument came over and asked if I was alright and he sped off.

Needless to say, we broke up the following day. He blamed me for all his issues (of course) and ended up moving to Florida with his half-brother to get into dealing drugs, so I heard. Sorry Florida, he's the last thing you need.

It is a good way to end it. Not so good if you want assurances that other things can be started afterwards.

That is to be expected, and is the natural course of things.  This is Florida's function in our society.  It's even sort of shaped like a bucket that the human weevils and crawdads can't escape from once they fall in.

Almost did it once myself too.

This woman I was involved with wasn't very stable and after several times of asking for her to pull over during her flipping out fest while driving and it kept getting worse by the moment.

One moment of sanity and she turned around and drove me "home"... when she knew that I would do it.

It followed with me moving out the very same evening I believe...(I think that it was the same day.. it was so messed up that it's all a blur to me now)

I got most of my stuff but she ended up screwing me over by refusing to let me get the last few things I hadn't been able to get out that evening.

But yes, I would have done it (jump out), at that point, taking my chances with such a stunt was better than what she was doing.

I'm certain that she told everyone that I was the deranged one but anyways... that was about 15 years ago, since then I rebuilt my life, got custody of the kids (that I had with another psycho.. but that's another story), got married, advanced in my career, got cars, house and just about everything.

As far as I know, she's still living in the grandmother's (now mother's) house and aside pursuing a few projects that I had started for her (but ultimately didn't go anywhere), she's had a very empty and pointless life.

Karma.. rules to live by.

I once jumped out a moving car... I had driven it off a cliff whilst fighting with an ex KGB mad woman who had shown up in my hotel bed the night before.

Fortunately I was able to land on the wings of a crop duster that was flying below us. I threw the pilot out (another ex KGB mad woman who I had seduced a week ago) but she shot the plane and it crashed in a fiery wreck moments later.

Fortunately I leapt out before the fireball... just did a tuck and roll and I was fine.

That's pretty much exactly the story of my brother-in-law. He was in a coma for 3 months, and at this point he can sorta walk, and mostly eat by himself - he shakes all the time with the onset of Parkinsons.  His speech is slow and deliberate.

But he got his drivers license back. I have no idea how that occurred in this new nanny state we live in.

It should be noted that he wasn't driving, which can only mean 3 things: a) he was shiatfaced, b) he's no gentleman, c) his gf has control issues. It should be noted that none of the above make for optimal conditions in which to engage in intergender debate.

Here's how I deal with each scenario:

a) I'm shiatfaced--this happens a lot.  This is the only circumstance which would have me and wifey in the car where I'm not driving, and this is a good thing. I abuse alcohol responsibly.  I would treat any argument or statement of blather by wifey that could even tempt me to jump from the vehicle with a grain of salt.  Obviously, I'm going to forget any shiat she said by morning, if not sooner, so I'm not going to let it upset me.

b) An unshiatfaced gentlemen always drives his date, girlfriend, boyfriend (NTTAWWT), or spouse.  Period.  farking Emily Post 101, chivalry shiat.  A gentleman likes to be useful, likes to let his date/girlfriend/boyfriend/wife relax and enjoy the view.  If, instead of enjoying the view, she wants to wind up and spew unfounded PMS vitriol that in any other situation might get under my skin, fine.  Get a clue, control of the wheel has a tendency to assert control of the debate.  Flung poo from wifey such as: "you never blah blah blah" can easily be countered with a Costanza-ish "WITH ONE TURN OF THE WHEEL I CAN KILL US BOTH!!" and presto, I'm back to fine tuning the audio aesthetics for the remainder of the ride.

c) Never date/befriend/marry anyone with control issues.  Just don't do it.

Ergo, one should never ever find oneself with the urge to jump from a moving vehicle with a woman at the wheel.

Yep, he sure showed her. Now she's fee to go back to opening her legs for the football team. Or the local gang. Whichever has the spare change.

I had a friend do this in College. The girl who was driving when it happened was a friend of mine so she came to my house out of nowhere crying and essentially saying "Tony, I think I killed [our friend]".

Turned out to be an interesting night since of course alcohol was involved.

/ He ended up being absolutely fine save a couple of scrapes and bruises after jumping out of the car at 60ish mph
// We searched the side of the road for hours expecting to find his dead body
/// After giving up and driving her home, we noticed a party going on in the garage across the street from her house and what looked suspiciously like our very much alive and still drunk friend
//// It was him, he was picked up by her neighbors that just happened to be driving right behind her when he decided to jump out of the car (even though it happened miles from her house). They bandaged him up and were drinking and hanging out with him.
// I am convinced that he only survived with no broken bones because he was too drunk to tense up.
// Alcohol FTW!

Yup. Drunks tend to ragdoll, and that's why they're often okay after massive accidents, while the sober people are all jacked up.

A friend of mine was fighting with his GF in the car, he was driving. He pulled over to a gas station got out and told her that either she was going or he was. She didnt move so he left his keys in the car and walked away. He came over to my place and we drank the rest of the night she trashed the car. Stupid thing was it was in both their names.
