    Default driving...

    i use to like driving a long time ago, but am way past that now..i am a very good driver and use the rules of the road...just learned that from the beginning(strange, being an entp and following the rules...that now is odd!!)
    too many idiots on the road...i just want to get there and run in/out and get back..

    I do LOVE riding my motorcycle....!!! its an incredibly pleasurable, focusing but unfocusing ride...

    i will say that i long for a car like an Audi S4 i once drove...man, that thing was like a rocket and its agility and speed were so damn fun!! haven't had that feeling in any other car. a true sport chassis and an absolute hoot to drive...too bad it was someone else's

    I've driven an Audi A4 and a BMW 3 something, special and fast.

    :yawn:

    I drive like a granny, anyhow.

    The Audi I could and can handle, the BMW, on the other hand, is way too fast, you like barely graze on the gas peddle and you're suddenly going 90 mph, me no likey, at ALL!!!

    Aw...no likey....i am afraid i am a speed freak for sure at times..


    did you drive the S4 or the A4? i had an A6 which was a nice car, but the sport version (think they call them R6 or RS6) was a souped up version of the standard sedan....it even had a little sport car wheel and just had the NEATEST feel...i could maneuver like a snake in traffic and at 90mph!!!

    just a blast to drive!

    The A4, it's my sister's car.

    And I am not a speed freak, but I sure do love motorcycles!!!

    Bleh, I haven't been on one for a couple years, damn shame!!!

    I don't like driving. Haven't driven myself in 15 years. I don't even much like being in cars. I like bike.

    If forced to comment meaningfully, I sometimes say cars, buses and trains are about the destination, but a bike is about the journey.

    The next thing to get myself is a motorcycle.

    Driving? Oh hell yes.

    When you're reading off a logbook to avoid hitting a tree sideways at 90 mph, I would imagine that takes a slightly different function than your average day-to-day driving. The driver is probably using one set of functions, the navigator another.

    And what functional strengths do you think most facilitate safe driving?

    Why am I asking? I drove for about 5 hours today and pondered this question. So I'm tossing it out here!

    No apologies.

    In America many people actually need a car.
    You neglected the public system of transport.

    Europe is another thing altogether.
    We have no need for private automobiles.
    There is an excellent system of public transport all across Europe.

    No.
    They think the atmosphere reaches up to heavens.
    The atmosphere however is held close to Earth's surface by the action of gravity.

    I posted this before bed last night, thanks for such good responses!

    Quote Originally Posted by speculative View Post

If there is an intersection coming up I don't look at the cars near the intersection so much as continually think ahead in time by 20-30 seconds and think how much time I need to slow down for the intersection, what if the light is turning yellow should I go through or not (this is before I get to the intersection, at a point in the future) and the likelihood that someone is going to run the red light and smuck into me as I go through the intersection. If I see a minivan near a school, I don't so much see the minivan as see the future possibilities of what the minivan will do. It may stop suddenly in the middle of the road, and either a kid will run out of the van to join other kids waiting for the schoolbus, or a kid will run out of the minivan to be dropped off at a friend's house, etc. ...

    So, while driving I am sensing the tactile feel of the steering wheel, the road noise, etc., but I am focused mainly on future possibilities of what will happen next...
    I relate to this post. I find I am very focussed on everything going on around me, and what others might do at any given moment. All the possibilities. I feel like I am using Ne & Se all the time. The intensity of focus can be tiring if the drive is a long one, like yesterday.

    But there are moments where it's a pleasure to feel absorbed in the connection between myself, the environment and the responsiveness of the car.

    Well, I was hoping to avoid moralizing on the car as a mode of transportation in this thread, but I suppose it is inevitable.

    Do we over-rely on cars? Absolutely.

    Could the majority be using more environmentally resposible vehicles? Yep.

    And you're right, the modes of public transport in North America are not well developed outside of urban centres. Many people live in underpopulated areas where public transportation has yet to make inroads (pun intended LOL!)

    If I had taken the train yesterday for my appt, I would have driven for half an hour to get to the train station, taken it for an hour and a half into the city, then taken the subway - bus for another hour to get to the Dr's office.

    I like long, quiet car rides (esp with changes in scenery), I don't like driving myself though... especially with my tendency to daze out...forget what side of the road i'm supposed to be driving on.. etc. I've been told that it is amusing/terrifying by those who I have driven.
