Afraid of driving cars
« on: April 10, 2014, 12:18:37 PM »
I'm just afraid of cars in general but mostly driving one myself.  I'm at that age where I should get a drivers license but... I don't trust myself or other drivers. It's too dangerous.

Some people can feel that way. I had a friend who I thought would be a brutal driver. Just that sort of person. Passed his test first time round and is one amazing driver. There are some things you never really know until you try them. I think I would trust myself in a car. It would be the other idiots on the roads I wouldn't trust. But that is just me. If you have a friend with a car ask them to give you the basics and get a bit of driving time in on roads that are empty. Just to see what you make of it all.

You may find as I did (and still do) that you may have anxieties before you drive, but are fine once you sit behind the wheel. It can even boost your confidence.

You determine how you drive, you are in charge. You drive carefully, defensively, are in no competition on the road. In fact, feel in control, a nice feeling. Don't be afraid, wishing you the best.

I will have to guess you live in New Jersey  :D
Seriously, a lot of people feel like you do, I think it's just the THOUGHT of it, once you actually do it you'll say, "What was I so afraid of?"

I had the same fear, but now driving is like second nature to me.

My only fear now?

1.) Careless drivers
2.) Drunk drivers
3.) Texters!!!!!
