Do you drive?

I've been driving since I was 18. Learned driving when I was 16, got my student's license at 17, officially driving a car by 18. Well, I think I'm a little proud of it, not really bragging about it.. I drive both stick shift and automatic. Whichever is cool with me.. I have a '97 Honda Civic Vtec, which has been very reliable car for me and my family ever since.. Although I drive I still like to be the passenger and would like to enjoy the scenery.. So, do you drive too?

i do drive, but i only know how to drive an automatic transmission car though. i don't really fancy driving that much though, so i prefer to be the passenger whenever i can

I've been driving for 38 years and the only collision that has been my fault was my first, when I was 17. I'm very proud of that! However, I cannot tolerate being in the passenger seat! When I'm driving, I know what I'm doing and I look everywhere--for pedestrians, for cars that might run the light, I read body language and watch for heads turning to signal a turn that someone might not bother to indicate with their turn signal, etc. When someone else is driving, especially if they're talking a lot and not seeming to watch the road, I just go nuts and the tension is unbearable. The only way I can enjoy being a passenger is in an airplane, a bus, or some other vehicle where I cannot see the driver!

No,I do not drive.In the city,there are more people and cars.To work off the peak period,the traffic congestion is very serious.Often there is no free parking in parking spaces,eating out,sightseeing,parking is a headache for the most.

I do. I like left hand drive vehicles, in India it is not much in supply. I find it hard to change gears.

My husband and I do not drive, because of problems with our eyes. My husband did drive up until last year when his eyesight got too bad for him to continue driving, whereas I was born legally blind, and have never driven a motor vehicle. The closest I've come to driving is to opporate a motorized wheelchair. LOL
