    Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Good morning!
    Hope everyone has had a blessed weekend so far...

    I was wondering what your preference is: driver or passenger in vehicles? Does it matter?

    With my job, I have a company van that I drive around all day. At home, my wife doesn't like to drive if she doesn't have to, so 99% of the time, I do the driving.

    My wife will drive if it's just her and her mother going around town lol So, she has a preference as to who it is doing the driving for her. She'll also drive the kids around...but if both of us are going-I do the driving.

    What about you?

    Have a great day,
    James

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Hey James!

    I rather be the passenger if the driver knows how to drive lol. otherwise I would definitely
    take control and drive myself. I don't like driving much. was never a really big fan when all my friends in high school were do excited to get their license lol I was like what's the big deal over driving. Then after they started driving and had more responsibilities they didn't like it much anymore haha. so for me I will play with my phone and let others drive.

    Have a nice day!

    Hey!

    I usually drive if I am in the car with another person. My girlfriend will drive too, we usually take turns. A lot of my friends don't have cars, so I usually am the one to do the driving when we are going places. They usually spot me a few bucks in order to pay for gas when we go to places. I appreciate that very much.

    I am rarely a passenger in the car. I don't mind driving. I also hate being a passenger when I am a car. I don't like sitting in one spot for long periods of time. At least when I drive, I can see the scenery and can control the speed that I drive.

    Have a great day!

    Hey!!

    I'd say driver since I just got a car not too long ago! So exciting! I don't mind being a passenger though, but I'd prefer to drive myself!

    Hello JamesP1977!

    I think it depends for me, if it's somewhere that I frequently drive to, I don't mind driving. However if it's somewhere I've never been before or just don't feel comfortable driving to because of traffic, I'll usually prefer to be the passenger. However, if want to be completely honest, I always prefer to be passenger, say if my boyfriend with me, cause then I can take a little siesta because someones car rides put me to sleep.

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Hi!

    I kind of prefer to drive more especially on long distant road trips. As a passenger I always kind of get motion sickness when I'm sitting in a long ride, and the act of driving and staying focused on the road and being alert really takes my concentration away from my motion sickness. I also like to take control of the wheel and feel safe when I'm the one driving, especially when around my friends who kind of like to speed things up to get to destinations faster. I also prefer to just let the passengers to relax while I take on the responsibility of driving because honestly most people that I've been around with prefer to be getting rides instead of giving rides XD But I don't mind giving the wheel up if somebody is super pumped to drive lol.

    Great topic, have a good one!

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    I LOVE TO DRIVE AND WOULDN'T WANT ANYONE ELSE DRIVING MY CAR FOR SURE LOL

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    i hate to drive!!! unfortunately my car is a manual so I always have to drive my car
    :(

    i definitely prefer to be a passenger though

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Hi James,

    I enjoy being the passenger because it's usually less stressful! I'm also not a huge fan of driving places, I rather enjoy the ride and relax a little. I also like to read in the car, and driving and reading doesn't mix well, so I rather read as the passenger hahahaha...

    Have a great night.

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Hi James!

    I am not a huge fan of driving. I usually pick where I live based on how close it is to my work. I do my best to keep my commute as short as possible.

    When I drive with my boyfriend, he drives 98% of the time. I prefer to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Morning James,

    I prefer to be the driver honestly. If I want to leave, I want to be able to control when we leave. I also want to be able to choose the music Lol. I do still Luke being the passenger sometimes though. It depends who I am with. I know who is a good driver and who isn't Lol.

    Have a great day

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Hi all!

    I love driving and I would definitely prefer to be a driver than a passenger. To be honest a lot of other people who I ride with are horrible drivers and their driving makes me car sick. It's not that they drive faster than I do or anything they just move back and forth along the road and I guess I'm sensitive to that? My younger sister just recently got her licenses and I was sitting in the passenger seat and she was going slower than I usually do and I could TELL what speed she was going! It was kinda creepy...

    Thanks for the forum!

    Re: Driver or Passenger? Which do you prefer to be?

    Hi James,

    I preference being a passenger. For 26 years I have walked, asked for rides, taken the bus or metro, and eventually used uber/lfyt for the reason of my condition now. But before that it was because of not wanting the responsibilities that a vehicles comes with. Especially now that I have a vehicle, I feel there are more reckless drivers. I can not stand when drivers do not use their signals! I miss my passenger days. Anyways great question. Have a good one!

    Thank you.
