Query: Hello. My name is Erik Martin, and I am a reporter with CTW Features, which publishes a Wheel Deals Briefs section on automotive topics. I’m seeking to interview mental health experts, behavioral therapists, driving school instructors/experts, and other professionals for the following story: How to overcome your fear of driving.

This article will explain why some people have a fear of driving that prevents them from owning/using a car and getting a license, how to overcome these fears, and more. I can only accept full-sentence written responses (via email) that I can use as quotes. Please contact me if you’d like to participate, but only if you have expertise with these topics I’m writing about. Questions;

  1. Please explain how and why some people have a serious fear of driving that prevents them from owning/using a car and getting a driver’s license. Also, if you have any statistics with links to underscore this trend, please provide them.
  2. How can people with this driving fear overcome these fears and position themselves to own/use a car and get a driver’s license? What can/should they be doing, and what realistic expectations should they have for getting over their fears (including how long it will take)?
  3. Please explain how the benefits of owning/using a vehicle and driving a car can outweigh the risks or negatives.
  4. Please explain how it’s never too late and you are never too old to get your driver’s license and own/use a vehicle.
  5. Any other thoughts, tips, or suggestions on this topic?
