Driving, when I started, of course, but now no way.
Motorcycle, not nervous when I got the hang of it.
Put the bike down, flipped over the front, so I became nervous any time I took the bike out. Sold the bike.
Now more confident than ever in my car.
Like most bike riders, it has always been other people I'm more afraid of. However, I once saw the same photo I'm sure a lot of other people have seen where a biker spilled face-first onto asphalt and his face was splayed open and looked like a human octopus for a head. Never got that out of my mind. I still love bikes, but find them far more comfortable on the open interstate where there are fewer lanes, fewer cars, and you can see everyone around you (and as long as you're careful, you don't have to worry much about the truckers - -just stay out of their blind spot). But in cities and freeways? Fuuuuck that.
I'm still anxious about driving. I never wanted to drive but I ended up getting my license because I felt that I should know how to in case of emergencies (plus my girlfriend was pregnant at the time). Has not stopped the anxiety for me since getting it though. I think it mostly has to do with just how stupid people can be while driving that gets me.
i get nervous when other people are driving , whn im driving i can zone out ... which i guess thinking about it now makes me a bit nervous .... if its a late night drive home sometimes i literally have no recollection of the actual driving part , im sure i woudl have been speeding at some point , but clearly i am not dead so i cant have hit anything on my way home ? right ? .. yeah .. i probably get tooo relaxed
I never liked driving so after moving to Japan one of the things I was really excited about was amazing public transportation and not having to drive. Well I've been living here for 7+ years now and I've had to ride passenger a number of times and being in a car in Japan is freaking terrifying! Side walks in America are bigger than two lane roads in Japan, what seems like countless blind turns, than you have people walking and riding bikes all the time and with shoulders or side walks not as common place it's just terrifying.
When I first started driving 10 years ago I was slightly nervous at first mainly du to concerns of others on the road. A year after I got my license I got in an accident and that was probably the first time I didn't want to drive. Lasted about a month and I haven't had any fear since.
I voted yes. I've had my driver's license for 3.5 years now and I've never really been anxious while driving since I acquired it. But recently (past few months) my vision has gotten really fucked up in a way that glasses won't help at all, so I've been avoiding it since that started. Now I can only drive confidently in my tiny hometown because I know every inch of the streets there.
