Wouldn't really want one, I prefer to park in areas toward the rear of a car park where it's less busy, I find it less stressful that way. Also prevents other people from damaging my car, the amount of times I've seen people just swing their door open into the car next to them is unbelievable.

Right now it just doesn't make sense for me to go through all the trouble of getting an official diagnosis and making time for appointments inbetween work just to be told something I already know. Wouldn't really bring any benefits.

I find that when I'm nervous or anxious about something that my hands start to shake. Sometimes my feet too. I remember that when I was taking my driving test I was so nervous that i struggled to keep my left foot steady on the clutch pedal because it was shaking so much.

I used to be jealous of people who could drive and had their own source of income but now I have my own car, a decent job and plans to move into my own place I guess not.

My car passed its MOT test with flying colours, no expensive repairs needed thankfully.

I always aim to arrive at work at least 20 minutes before my shift starts, only been late once when I somehow managed to sleep through all 3 of my alarms. I felt quite anxious the entire drive there about what they would say about it, nothing was done about it luckily.

I don't have a problem with driving a car, i find that it in fact can be quite relaxing.
But i refuse to drive the forklifts at work for the exact same reason, tried it a few times but at no point did I ever feel safe or in control, even after weeks of training.

I'm not, I enjoy driving. I refuse to even buy an automatic car, let alone a self driving one. Same here but I applied to work at a mapping company that works on them. Full autonomy is likely to be just as dangerous as human drivers so I think I'll buy just about any manual car I can get with radar...

A secure job that I don't dread going to that's closer to my house than the one I have now so I could save money on fuel and insurance.
Once I get that I can get the majority of the other things I want.

As someone who drives quite a lot I see rude and ignorant all the time. What gets me the most is when I stop to give way to someone or let them pull out etc and they don't give a little wave or flash their lights to say thanks, takes no effort at all to do.

But saying that it's a great idea for those people who seemingly got their license from a cereal box and subsequently can't drive for sh*t.

Mainly about not getting a contract at work that I was promised because I had to take 3 days off due to being ill. And also about today people pulling out onto my side of the road on 3 separate occasions to overtake a parked car forcing me to stop when I had right of way and they should have waited,...

The majority of mine is to do with work, although I do seem to find that whatever I get anxious about normally turns out pretty well.

If I could choose 2 I'd go for a 67/68 Mustang GT Fastback and a 69 Mustang Mach 1
