These days I don't drive very often, just do it from time to time. I'm quite a careful driver, I follow the rules (in 99% of cases) but I hate to drive being alone. The presence of anyone else - my husband, my dad, a friend or even my one-year-old daughter who's definitely not a helper:) - makes me feel much more confident and relaxed. Every time I 'm going to a new destination, I double-check maps first and sometimes even print them out and take them with me. I can't use a GPS properly - I can never match what it says with what I see around me on the roads. Maybe it's also because I drive a manual transmission car and have to concentrate on extra things. I really like it though.
How about you? What do you like and hate about driving (except traffic jams:) )? What are your strengths and weaknesses, in this context?
I'm curious to hear about your experience and will be glad to learn some new vocabulary.
Thanks Olga started this discussion. I think we could learn some new words and expressions. Thank the comments. I like driving but if car does not neccessary I choose public transport or walking or a bike. I passed my driving license when I was 17 years old. It is the earliest age when you can acquire the license according the law in my country. I prefer to drive in high-ways. Driving in big cities can be horrible.
Anyway you can watch English learning videos on youtube connected to driving.
