Life in North America often revolves around cars. Our streets, houses and places of business are designed to accommodate cars and trucks to allow us mobility and freedom. Even in more densely populated cities where public transportation is more available and practical, transportation happens in a taxi, Uber or Lyft vehicle. As I’ve mentioned before in a prior blog post, we move fast in vehicles, to the point that one false move could mean instant death. That’s why being a good driver is so important.
Not only can driving competence keep you alive, but it can save you money on insurance, and hassle from car accidents. Being a good driver also can keep your friends and family out of harm’s way. How important should this be in selecting a mate with whom you want to have children? I say very.
Besides, the less tentative a driver you are, the more confident you can be in daily life. You can proudly say you’ll share in the driving and not worry about what others will think. You can parallel park in tight spots thereby saving time and fuel.
