There are millions of motorists on the streets of Britain at any one time, with the number of drivers on the roads seemingly increasing on a daily basis.
It will eventually get to a point where traffic jams will become the norm rather than something that occurs during peak hours of traffic, such as when people are commuting to and from work.
One of the by-products of increased numbers of motorists on the roads, these days, is the fact that road rage incidents also increase, with some of those incidents ending up with potentially fatal consequences.
If you are not a fan of driving at the best of times, then you might want to consider giving up driving altogether.
The above paragraph illustrates one such example why you might want to give up getting behind the wheel and sell your car to someone like Deal4yourwheels, for example. Just think of all the things you could do with the extra cash, not to mention the fact that you won’t be stressed out by what does (or doesn’t) happen on the road!
Here are 8 more reasons why you might wish to give up being a motorist:
1. Driving is expensive
It is a well-known fact that the costs associated with keeping your car on the road are seemingly getting higher with every passing year.
2. Driving causes stress
Because you have to constantly anticipate other motorists’ actions all the time, you end up getting stressed when they perform some stupid manoeuvres on the road such as driving through a red traffic light!
3. Parking can be a nightmare
If you live somewhere that is hard to find a parking space in, it can often cause you to get grumpy when you have to drive around for ages to find somewhere to park.
4. Roads aren’t always maintained
I don’t know about you, but I have lost count of the number of potholes that I have driven past or accidentally into, which the local authorities or the Highways Agency can’t be bothered to fix.
5. You spend a lot of time not driving
Thinking of travelling to some place during the middle of rush-hour traffic? Forget it! You may as well bring your favourite novel with you because you won’t get much driving done!
6. Driving at night can be dangerous
Not only do you have to contend with potentially drunk motorists on the road, but many roads are often unlit (even some motorways), and it can be quite dangerous at times to drive at night – especially in adverse weather conditions.
7. Everyone’s always in a hurry
For some reason, a lot of motorists feel they have a higher priority on the road than you because they are late for work, a dinner appointment, or because they want to re-enact a scene from Grand Theft Auto V!
8. You need to wear a smog mask
Built-up areas often have high concentrations of harmful CO2 (carbon dioxide) gasses because of idling engines due to traffic jams.
