Do you live in London or somewhere with a lot of transport links then? I don’t mind using public transport, but it’s just not always an option, unless I want to spend 3 hours doing a journey I could drive in 45 minutes.
I only have one train station where I live with one train every half hour, or longer when it inevitably gets delayed. I’m near the end of the line too, so the only way I can go is into London. Driving is useful for shopping and visiting my friends who live in places without a station at all. My mum too, she lives in the middle of nowhere!
Same with places like Devon and Cornwall. When I go there I like to explore all the towns and villages. If you think you can do that without a car
