運転の何がこんなに僕は嫌なのだろうと思い返してもちょっとよくわからなかったので、「車 運転 嫌い」と検索したら一番上でできたこのサイトを読んでいってみます。
確かに合流はイライラさせられます。合流があるから少し速度を緩めるとはいえ80 km とか100 km とかで動いている物体になんとなく割り込んでねみたいなそんな曖昧なシステムあっていいのでしょうか。もう少し保護してもらいたい。これはほとんど国土交通省によるネグレクトと言っても過言ではありません。
I drive a lot these days because I've quit my day job so I can move around more easily during the day, plus using public transportation in Corona isn't very good for me.
Well, for the past 5-6 years since I got my driver's license, I've been driving at least once a week, more or less, but that's been reduced to about twice a week.
Thanks to this, I have a gold driver's license, and I haven't had a near-death experience on the highway, or scraped something with all my might, or had an old lady with no legs in the passenger seat, and I think I'm just a normal driver who isn't extremely good or extremely bad at it.
What is it about driving that I hate it so much that I couldn't understand it, so I searched for "car driving hate" and found this site at the top.
1) Changing lanes
The first one is "lane change". Even if you are driving on a public road, you will have to do this many times, such as when there is parking in the left lane, or when a bus or cab in front of you has to stop and you have to pass it, and you may feel that you are even worse at this. If you're not good at changing lanes, are you driving too close to the car in front of you in the first place?
It's true that lane changes can be frustrating. Maybe it's because I only drive in Osaka city, but there are five or six lanes with many left turn lanes and five or six right turn lanes, and I'm thinking, "Where do I go from here? Hey Navi! Can I leave already? Bad? Tell me a little more about that, too! It is very common to think, "This is a bad system. This is a bad system.
2) Right turn
Next, "right turn". The reason for this is that you are not good at reading the speed of cars coming straight from the opposite lane, and it is difficult to find the right time to get out of the car. When there is a car lined up behind you waiting to turn right, you may be tempted to rush to get out of the car, but you don't have to worry about that at all. If you are so concerned about it that you end up forcing yourself to turn right and end up in danger or running over pedestrians, you are in trouble.
Right turns can certainly be frustrating. It's usually "No U-turns! I'm annoyed by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport's tsundere, which never says "You can make a U-turn..." despite the fact that it's written so prominently on the road and on the signs. Well, this is a bad system.
The next step is "merging". There are many merging points, not only on highways, but also on main roads, such as when you exit onto a main road. People who are not good at this are often trying to get "in front" of cars on the mainline. What? Isn't that normal? You may think that this is a good idea, but I would recommend that you merge as if you were following a car "behind" it as it passes on the main line.
Merging can certainly be frustrating. Is it right to have such a vague system where you have to somehow interrupt an object moving at 80 km or 100 km, even if you have to slow down a bit because of a merge? I want a little more protection. It is not an exaggeration to say that this is almost a neglect by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
The confluence reminds me that every time I go to Minoh to camp or see autumn leaves, I wish they would stop putting up signs at intervals of a few hundred meters periodically that just say "Minoh toll road ahead" to encourage our psychological reaction. If I go straight on this road, I'm sure I'll run into a toll road, so I wonder if I should change lanes, or if the heavy road running alongside this train in front of it leads to a toll road, or if it's already on a toll road? Well, I know it's not true, but I'm a little nervous about that whole area, so I'd like to see "This is not a toll road" signs put up periodically as well. This can be solved by the system, I'm not bad at all.
4) Passing each other on narrow streets
Next, "passing each other on a narrow road". The main reason why people who are not good at this is because they do not have a good sense of their own vehicle. However, when you get out of the car and look at it from the outside, you will realize that there is more room to pass each other.
It's true that narrow streets can be frustrating. I don't know if it's better now, but back then, I was often forced to take narrow roads that no one would pass on the basis of an algorithm that said, "There are not many people on the road, so I don't know what to do. I used to go and turn back, laughing and saying "You're lying!
I'd like to see a sign like that.
Also, as I recall from the center line, isn't there a huge lane missing around Minamimorimachi (or was it?)? Is this a bad system or something like that? No law that must be repainted?
Now, the last one is "garage parking". There are many factors that can cause this to be difficult for you, so I can't say that this is right for everyone, but I think there are three main reasons.
It's certainly frustrating to get into a garage. I once parked my car in a place that was very narrow with poles at all four corners, and I had to put it in at an angle, and I was fine until I parked it, but I just couldn't get out of the car, and no matter how many times I tried to get out and check, I kept going back and forth like a fool, just barely scraping it. I had to call my father, who loves to drive, to get me out of the car. This is, well, a bad system that is supposed to allow you to park there in the first place. I'd like to say it first.
So, now that I understand that it's basically a problem with my personality, I'm going to go burn my license before I crash.
