Fangs for your fears

Dark road

You guys. We've been weeping for days over how many of you have shared your driving fears and advice for beating them. It's not always an easy thing to talk about because driving's supposed to be fun, fast and fancy-free, right?

Hmmm. No. Learning to drive can be a great experience but driving is also a mahoosive responsibility and once you're out there on your own, it's totally normal to have a few anxieties hanging around. It's letting them run away with you that's the problem.

First step: talking about it. And you guys have really risen to the occasion.
