Thread Name: BS: Driving Situations You Avoid or try to.
Subject: RE: BS: Driving Situations You Avoid or try to.
I forgot to mention on my first thread that I have to admit, men are usually more confident in driving then women - not that men are necessarily better drivers but I know several women with many driving phobias. Four of my women friends do not drive on freeways at all.
Two used to - but don't anymore and the other two never drove on freeways even though they have all driven for many years.

Most guys I know feel more confident in parallel parking and have no problems with it at all. I can't recall any guy offhand that has any problem with parallel parking. Yes, I do know a few women who parallel park but also know many who avoid it all together.

I do not parallel park either so if I am parking on a regular street I will sometimes have to park far away just so that I can avoid a parallel parking spot close by.

I didn't get a car until I was about 29 years old so kind of started driving later then most. Then I was without a car for several years (in recent years) so I never really had the confidence that people have when they get a car in their teens or early 20's and start driving when they are young.

However, I have to say, unlike most - I do not drive and use a cell phone, Bluetooth, earpiece of any kind or any device that distracts people when driving.
