It might've been - no one told me I wasn't capable (and when I was a teen I really wanted to drive but my mom upped the anti to impossible levels, kept moving the goal posts - so I was never allowed to get my learners license or if I had she wouldn't have let me use her car or taught me - and I was on the younger side of my friends so they were driving us around before I was old enough, and they wanted to drive, anyway) - the combo of my reflexes/ startle response and Visio-spacial awareness while going at high speeds was probably never a good idea, and my mom was probably right to stall me. Eventually I just got used to transit anyway. Maybe if I lived in a tiny country town I might've driven, but not in anything like a city. I'm good with a scooter. I could maybe try to get a license and a hand controlled car but I'm not comfortable with the idea of driving anymore, anyway. Too dangerous for me, I think. I could probably drive around the block right now, hypothetically. I know enough to do it. But I wouldn't even want to go out to the main road.That's why I asked. I wasn't sure if you had a license. Did you ever think about driving? I recognize that it would be difficult to do it now, but it probably would have been quite possible in your teens/20s.
