Afraid To Drive

Im a 37 years old man, Im from Costa Rica, and I never drive there, traffic is really stressful there, cars and gas are not cheap and is a really good bus/taxi service all over....
I live in chicago since 5 years ago... My wife is from here and she has been really supported about my rejection to drive, sometimes I know things will be more easy for her with me driving too, but is hard to me feel confident behind the wheel, stress me so much thing what is gonna happen in the next light, what if somebody cut on front of me, etc....

I know some people think Im just too lazy or irresponsible for not drive, but if I feel not confident doing it, if I believe I can hurt somebody, my kids or myself just for do something "because everyone does it" that will be irresponsible right?

My son school is just a few blocks away, and in winter other parents help me to take him, but next year my daughter is going there to kindergarden, that means 3 trips a day... so finally I coming to the point that is not option, we live too close to the school so is not bus service for us....

Against my will I will need get licensed, I have no other option... right?

I hope being wrong about all my driving fears and be in peace doing it someday....
