I love cars. I've always thought cars are cool. I'm quite a tall dude, and my first choice of car was totally stupid (an old '84 Honda Civic), far
too small with zero leg room and I was cramped up and almost immediately sold it. Was useless to try and learn in.
Now, I'm 32 years old, and want to buy a new car, to learn in, and drive everywhere.. and I want it to be a decent car this time. Now, here's the
I'm scared. I'm scared I'm going to crash into something. To run over a flock of schoolchildren. All that constant looking around the full 360
degrees thru the mirrors and windows.. the thought of it, freaks me out. The open road, a lone highway, does not worry me so much. But getting around
a busy street, could well be a hell of a mission.
Does anyone have any advice for this 'late-bloomer'? Is this paranoia justified? Or have I left it too late?
