  • just don't think about it, focus on whats in front of you and glance in the rear view mirror and around you once in a while just to be aware of your surroundings

  • I am 42 years old and I don't drive. I do have my license. I got it when I was 30 and I drove for about 2 years and then I developed an irrational fear of driving. I had never been in accident (was in my 1st last year and I have panic attacks when i am a passenger now) but out of nowhere the mere thought of driving tossed me in a panic. TG I live 2 village blocks (much smaller than a city block) from my childrens school & the library, 3 village blocks from the grocery store and 6 from the beach. I can walk everywhere.

  • I just got my driver permit on July 31st and I've been driving since. However, I have a fear of getting into accidents because when I was in my mom's car (I was in the passenger seat) when I was about 32 weeks pregnant, we were side-scraped but the car got dented a little bit and scratched quite a bit. The whole experience has made me terrified and untrusting of other drivers on the road. I drive perfectly (or so I've been told by my parents) but I'm TERRIFIED of other drivers. I'll wait until there's like no cars on the street before I turn, or I'll give someone else the right of way because I'm afraid they'll hit me. Actually, tonight I was driving to my school and there's a roundabout on the way down there. Well I actually stopped and waited until there were no cars on it to go. It was about a 2 minute wait. I almost got hit on that thing and ever since it has scared me the most. Big trucks freak me out too.. =/

  • I'm afraid of merges and lane switches, especially in heavy traffic.
