Re: Driving

I love driving~ ^ A^
I would be so lost if I couldn't drive. Don't get me wrong, I still use public transport when I need to but I don't think I would survive catching buses to get to and from work each day. It also makes going to friends houses a lot easier since I can just leave and come back whenever as opposed to working out bus/train times and planning my day.

At the moment I drive a VS Commodore. It's so big though @__@ I recently bought another car though, a 1986 Celica SX. The only reason why I don't use my Celica yet is because it's manual and I am too lazy to try and learn ._.

Re: Driving

Saul has road rage. I kinda get like that sometimes too. Ill be all because people in my town dont seem to understand the concept of merging into traffic.

If you drive a Jeep, you'll notice that courtesy from other Jeeps will happen. Just be sure to return the courtesy. You do this, and you enter the secret Brotherhood of the Jeep.

Re: Driving

I drive, and I ❤❤❤❤ing hate it. Too many idiots who don't know what the ❤❤❤❤ they are doing around here. I swear, I haven't met a driver who actually knows how to yield.

I had to get me a new car recently, so I have a 2004 KIA (mother gave it to me). it isn't... that bad, but its better than my previous car

I'm not gunna lie, one time when I was on the high way going to my school, this car- he didn't have his light on, turned in, and almost hit me. I stomped on my breaks so he wouldn't hit me and my head hit the stearing wheel. I nearly crapped myself, I stuck my head out the window, gave him my middle finger, and continued driving.

Re: Driving

I've yet to obtain my license even though I'm old enough to drive. I haven't even been to class to get my permit. From all the driving I have done, it seems fairly simple. I'm sure my opinion will change once I have to learn everything, but for the most part, the physical driving part seems relatively easy once you get it down.

Re: Driving

Driving is not likely to happen for me.

I had a couple of years where I could have driven. Back then I took driver's education, and I got my permit. However, the practice driving was scary for me and I wasn't doing it right. So... I got scared, and in the remainder of those two years (my last two years of high school) it was never something that was necessary so I never worried about it.

Re: Driving

It's interesting for me to hear about people not driving, since in the environment I'm in, you pretty much have to.

Re: Driving

I should have learned to drive years ago but I didn't. In Queensland (where I lived until last year), in order to get your license, you have to do 100 hours of supervised driving, and then spend about a year on P plates, where you have limited driving hours/passengers, and then another year on open P plates, where you're still technically learning but generally okay to drive anywhere.

I moved to WA last year and you only need 25 hours of supervised driving here, so I should get my learners and all that before they put it up to 100 hours, but it's like $70 just to do the test and get the learners and I can't afford that right now so, eh.


Also I am terrified of driving. I am so unfocused I'll probably run into a bus of children.

....... I actually don't like to drive. I never did since I was a small kid. I have fears riding cars, crash crashes especially. They are very common in my area.

Re: Driving

Would I be giving away the answer too much if I said that this is one of my favorite television programs?



If that doesn't explicitly answer the question, then let me say that I really enjoy driving. I'm driving a Kia Sorento '11--which is essentially a very small SUV. Not particularly sporty and it's, um, a V-4. Nevertheless it's a good car for the generic urban professional about to form a family. It's got very decent handling for an SUV, and four cylinder engines are now efficient enough that it really feels like it has a lot more get-up than other, older four cylinder cars I've driven.

One of my favorite memories of all time was when pop and I took a trip to Germany and decided to rent a car. The car was not precisely the ideal for two guys looking for adventure: a Volkswagen Polo--basically a station wagon. A diesel no less. However, once we hit the Autobahn, got in the far left lane, and got to the 120 mph point, suddenly the fact we were driving in a thoroughly uncool punch buggy was forgotten. It's one of those experiences that'll prompt you to ask somebody to pass you a cigarette once you hit 100 mph. Then we drove to the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart. T'was amazeballs.

Re: Driving

I've never understood why someone *wouldn't* drive outside of a car and insurance, lol...it's like the gateway to freedom. I got my license as soon as I was legally able at the age of 16 and have been driving daily ever since. Young drivers and stuff aside, I absolutely need it to attend college so young and to get a job soon. It's a beautiful thing and I loooove driving.

Re: Driving

I haven't taken driving lessons yet.

When I have enough money to pay all the late installments of my tuition, if there's any decent amount left after that, I'll consider it.

Re: Driving

I hate driving. Just hate it.

But I had to learn so I could get to and from college, work, social places etc. It took me three times until I passed my practical and I've been driving for nearly four years now. Still hate it. I'm not a natural at it, I get nervous and stressed really easily on the roads, and I can't park for anything. At present, I drive a 1 litre citroen saxo which is on its last wheels and trading her in for a smart car soon (something that I've found fun and really convenient to handle). I am yet to enjoy it.

Trading a Citroen for a Smart Car? Why not go for a Renault Twingo? :p

I wish I could drive. But not a car, a motorbike. Even though almost everyone I know says they're deathtraps. Nobody can dissuade me from this. You can try though

Re: Driving

I am 22 years old, and have very little knowledge of how to drive. When I was in school, I had onc Driver's Ed class, with about 12 others. We read from a booklet, and took some tests. Each of us had a chance to drive in the freezing weather, with ice, snow, and everything else. We used to drive around the village, then go out to the airport, set some cones up, and do some tests.

I ❤❤❤❤ing hated it, I am a terrible driver, especially the damn parallel parking.
I am too afraid to leave this little village, and drive in a big town. I don't even have a permit or a license to drive.
I have no confidence whatsoever to learn how to drive. I'm sure I will learn one day, get proper training, and just try go for my license.
