I was just thinkin of the Beatles, I was a daytripper on the 13th .... sounds korny doesn't it? Back in 1968 I wanted to learn to drive so ma took me to this road and let me drive. Back then there was just the electric power station around here so we'd call the road Electric Rd. ~~~ ok, ok, so we were simpletons but the name fit. Where did you learn to drive?

Same as @Asylum, I never learned to drive. Before to marry, I lived in a big city with excellent public transport. After I got married we moved to Monte-Carlo, that is a very small city where the car is not a necessity. My husband drove if we needed to go to Italy or to other places. I have never been interested to learn to drive.

@rebelann Not really. My town has grown to 100,000 people, but we are each required to have a minimum of 1 1/2 acres of land. We have two, so the houses are not on top of each other. It's a small town with a town center consisting of a church, senior center, town hall, volunteer fire and police department, and a new library. Very New England looking. Further away on a main road is a farmer's market, a little deli, and small businesses just as you read the city line about 2-3 miles away. Then the restaurants, supermarket, hardware store, etc. begin.

We are the lucky ones. I'm not even sure parents these days take the time to teach their kids to drive. I took drivers education through my school back in 1969, it was an elective that counted as a grade but I think mom had to pay $30 dollars anyway. I haven't a clue how much people pay for drivers ed these days.
