Driving And Freedom

Driving And Freedom

For those that do not drive, I'm sure you understand. It's frustrating when I can't go anywhere by myself. Someone always has to drive me. I feel like I've lost some of my freedom.

I haven't driven in 15 years but I'm lucky to enough to live in a city with a good public transit system. And I live in the city which makes things accessible.

I stopped driving with the help of my wife and therapist 20 years ago. I became afraid that I could kill someone having a seizure and I never would want to kill my wife or another person in another car. My wife gets me around to places in town. My riding the bus in town has given me the independence.

Nowadays so you Huber andSelf driving cars now EOV’s They drive themselves and you can’t get any better and one epilepsy talk she thought about them about how the new cars are going to be great for people with epilepsy that since you had epilepsy they be great for us because we would not have to worry about actually having a license because the cars could actually drive us and legally we could actually I wanna car and the car could actually make us money as well because then you can put them out as a taxi in the meantime when you’re not using it and that’s how you must haveThat’s how he wants to create a taxi service so he put it out as a taxi service for so many hours and you pay your bill down faster so the taxi service uses it and all that kind of stuff I think it’s interesting that is a possibility to think of in the future yes it would run your miles up but you have to think of the pros and the cons for yourself to with Biden in office it’s not gonna be worth it if Trump is back in office I think it will be a pro because it’s a business at that point for you for you you’re self-employed and it’s your business so you’re right everything just about most of it off and the rest of your some of your house expenses would also be written off 20% off but we have to get Trump out back in office I know I want him back in office our country was better off at that point but that’s my own personal opinion.

I no how all of you FEAL I have not been allowed to drive but I also know how to drive and I have my license remember EOV our self driving cars each state is probably gonna be totally different rules and regulations so check your state for the rules and regulations license if you can get a license and then work down they don’t have to know it but they don’t know won’t hurt them so if your wife buys the car and it’s paid off and then she leaves it to you then all you have to do is take it to appointments and it’s self driving at that point that’s my whole point as long as it’s left to you you have that point when you would have a way of getting everything will be paid off by that point X well so just remember if it’s already in your family I don’t think they can take away from you at that point because now it’s you being used for you as a taxi or using it as a taxi for yourself and then just credit your account on that as long as you’re sitting behind the driver seat if you have to have a license.
