I bought a car. I never drove because I hated driving my mom’s car. I was always afraid I would crash it or hit something with it. In addition, if I drove her car I had to drive with her and she would be nervous. That only made me nervous. So I bought a car about 8 months ago and I’ve been driving ever since.
I’ve still got a ways to go. I certainly do make a few mistakes especially on roads with which I’m not familiar. Generally though I don’t mind it much. You have a lot more freedom and you can finally give your friends and family rides to places after so many years of having to rely on them.
