They make me feel inadequate for not driving.

When I was about 19, I wanted to learn to drive and I booked myself some driving lessons. Unfortunately, I did not get on with the driving instructor and I had a bad experience. This put me off driving and I have not driven since. When people find out that I cannot drive, some of them look at me as if I am stupid. This makes me feel upset because I think that driving should be a personal choice and not something that everybody should have to do.

@ramapo17 I did not need to drive in the city where I was born. When we moved from Italy to Monte-Carlo I needed to use a car even less. Monte-Carlo is such a small place the car is more a burden than a pleasure there. I went everywhere walking.

It is not because you are stupid. Some people are afraid to drive and those people should not be behind the wheel of a car. Back when you were trying to learn you should have tried with someone else teaching you. We all do not get along with everyone. I think it is not a good idea not to drive, unless there is a medical reason, because you might come to a time when you need to get out fast and cannot find anyone to take you. This is very important if you have children or grandchildren.
