Driving is an indispensable part of our life. We go the supermarket, to the theatre, to work, to haul our kids, to a party, for a day out and what not! And we drive! The same roads, the same traffic rules, the same boring signals and we gradually lose the passion to drive, something that actually caused several small accidents in our teenage years!
