I don't like driving, however, I have to. lol But, if it was up to me, I would love to be driven around mostly. I know there are means of transportation in my area, the metro (subway) the bus, taxi etc. However, that would be costly alone. But, without a doubt I would love to be driven. What about you. Do you like to drive? Or would you rather have someone drive you around to where you want to go?

I don't like driving either but sometimes I have to do it. I'd much rather have someone else drive me around. If I'm with my husband then I usually make him drive. That doesn't stop me from telling him what to do though. LOL He tells me all the time that he's going to pull over and let me drive since I'm telling him how to do it.

i would rather drive than be driven... driving is relaxing for me despite some rude drivers or other hassles you encounter on the road..

I live in the country so I pretty much don't have a choice but to drive.I sometimes will allow my boyfriend to drive if i'm not in a hurry.

I don't know how to drive yet- but in case i do- i will still prefer to be driven to my destination, specially if its a long drive- so i can enjoy the scenery, take some photos and best of all SLEEP! i wouldnt be able to sleep while im driving right? and my hands are free! i can eat and play a gameboy and not worry about the steering wheel or where im going- i just simply have to sit back and relax and wait until i arrive at my destination... pretty lazy huh? =) i can take turns in driving though if i have someone to take turns with... =)

Most of the time I prefer to drive myself. I drive quite fast and it does tend to annoy me when people drive slowly and it takes a long time to get to where we need to be. However I have no problem at al sitting on the train and relaxing totally while someone else drives me to my destination.

Well just as long as you don't get a ticket and safe driving. I would enjoy someone else to drive me though over all...Long as we get to our destination on time, I'm fine

It mostly depends upon my mood and the route.Lol.If the road to my destination has less traffic,then I always prefer to drive myself,enjoying the speed and music. But if I have to go to a busy place,then I leave it on the other person.

I like to drive but if I'm asked to drive for a very long kilometers, well, that's something I don't want to. lol. I only love to drive in some places just nearby our city, not too far away. If that happens, I'd prefer to be the one who's in the passenger seat. :)

I remember I used to look forward to being able to get my driving liscence and drive around endlessly with friends. It has been 10 years now. The novelty has worn off. I only drive when I absolutely have to now, otherwise, I have my bf to send me here and there. Too lazy to drive, can't stand the traffic either.

I prefer to be driven to my destination. I like to look at the scenery and not have to concentrate on the traffic as much.

i was eager to learn how to drive when i was younger. and when i finally knew how to drive and had the chance to drive around, i found out that i didn't like it much. it was tedious because of the traffic and i didn't know how to park the car so that was also a problem. i would love to be driven to my destinations as i can sleep in the car or do anything i please. i would just like to drive once in a while. makes me feel free. just cruising the highway and enjoying the view. it feels like you're going to some heavenly place.

I definitely prefer to be driven around. I learned to drive rather late in life, and though comfortable in handling the vehicle when I'm on my own, I still feel conscious when I have passengers. I like the idea of having my own driver. I grew up having a driver drive me to school and later to work. When I move to the States, I have to learn how to drive. My hubby, who was my boyfriend then, taught me how to drive. He was a very aggresive and strict teacher, and I learned quite quickly but with a lot of stress. I think I cried buckets of tears throughout the whole experience. Now, when we travel together, I rarely drive. I only drive when I'm by myself. For me, having my own personal driver would be the ideal situation.

I would rather drive myself. I don't really like public transportation. It takes longer and is usually very crowded. I prefer to drive myself and save some time.

I definitely prefer to be driven around to my destinations. Driving really makes me nervous and I avoid it whenever possible. Besides, when you're driven around you're given the opportunity to lay your head back and take in the scenery, you can also close your eyes and take a little nap which of course could not be done if you're the driver!
