If you have to drive a across a scary bridge would you rather your husband drive?

If driving across a high or long bridge, specifically over water, would you rather you drive so you can control the car, or your husband/SO drive so you dont have to look??

  • depends. i have anxiety when i drive all the time, so if im already anticipating that we're going to go over a bridge, i'd rather him drive because my nerves are already shot before i even get into the car. i typically avoided bridges at all costs anyway, however, a friend of mine lives 10 minutes away and there is a 5 mile bridge separating her home to mine. might not seem long, but it seems like it stretches on forever when im having a panic attack! there's also a bridge in my area called "the sunshine skyway" it's long AND freakishly tall, it was built so large ships as big as oil freights could pass beneath it. i will never drive over it.

  • i have a love hate relationship w/ them-the more i go across them the less im scared but if i dont for awhile then i'm terrified. i would say i would rather him drive so i dont have to look but then there is the issue of not having control of the car so idk

  • Bridges don't bother me so it doesn't really matter.

  • It doesn't bother me either way. If he drives I look around, if I drive I watch the road.
