Get a really big, safe, fast, comfortable car. I love driving through malfunction junction in Atlanta in my big hog Cadillac with its steel roll cage and reinforced roof, 500 ponies, 4 wheel traction control, front and side air bags, 300 watt sound system, in dash GPS, and bum warmer seats.
Isn't that just special???
Yeah, she is a special car. Her 500 ponies will really get you off.
The problem is that its an unreliable Caddy with "ponies" rather than horses. If you are going to brag about power..... compare torque... not ponies.
I wasn't comparing my Caddy with anything. I was trying to get the guy excited about driving, not have a useless techy ******* match with you.
Get more experience driving on multi-lane highways maybe during low traffic periods at first. I know it sounds crazy but they're actually designed to be much safer than 2 lane black tops.
You can't. I have the same Fear. You don't get rid of the fear,you get USED to it. After 40 years the fear is still there,but I accept it and it doesn't bother me nearly as bad. :)
No luckily I live in a small town.My family and Wifes family do live in big cities and we go often . I know what you mean you try to leave space,between you and the guy ahead and people fill in the space.There is no way to drive safe in big city traffic.You just have to,do the best you can,and not worry about it too much. :)
Find a good therapist that specializes in fear resolution.
Its not a problem for me and most people. BTW, its just common sense to drive in other than the left lane. The left lane is for vehicles that are passing others.
I, as most people drive where they are comfortable.... often I drive in the left lane to pass others.......
drive through downtown Atlanta on their six lane highways... I recommend a sports car that is a stick shift. turn the music up, put the top down and pretend you're a pinball inside a pinball machine...
Pretend it's a video game. Play driving video games.
