I don't drive anymore. I get chauffeured around in a Ford Focus.

That's what I used to think, too. I love cars and driving. But then I found myself in a city where I didn't really need one, and now I go insane when I am behind the wheel (idiot drivers, traffic lights, etc).

It drives me crazy! And the public transportation here is non-existent.

It can be inconvenient among other things, but I feel overall it has reduced stress. I don't leave at the last minute knowing I can just haul butt in the car, I don't have to put up with all the stresses of driving. I can chill and read a book or enjoy the scenery, while listening to music (which can be done in a car, too, and I do miss leisurely drives). I'm not trying to convince you of course, just saying I never thought I'd be ok with not having one. Not to mention the money I'm saving or able to spend on other things. Though it would be nice to have a car for weekends.

Yeah pros and cons on both sides, but if I have something IE a drivers licence I make every endeavour to use it......plus cars are my hobby and career so driving's what I enjoy whether it's exchanging paintwork in the city or taking a cruise in the sticks
