Anybody ever been driving or sitting in the passenger seat and when you enter a motorway (especially one with a huge intimidating expanse in front of you) you become overcome with fear and want to get out of the car? I'm usually uneasy when I'm about to head onto a huge motorway, especially when the sun is blaring-it feels so frightening sometimes and I'm not sure where that discomfort comes from.

Thanks for the advice-I only bring this topic up because a dream I had last night reminded me of my unease on motorways.

My passengers often feel that way when I floor it to merge with the traffic, without having to turn my head. It'd be rude not to.

You should have a healthy respect for the speeds and stopping distances on motorways. However, they are the safest roads per mile traveled, so please try to keep it in perspective.

It's important to have a healthy respect for high speeds used on motorways, don't be a cocky pratt but also don't be sheepish about it.

Motorways are statistically the safest type of road out there, they're to a better standard than an A road and a bit more consistent - long, straight roads as opposed to a stretch of dual carriageway at 40 mph then a windy single carriageway at NSL.

It's perfectly natural to be nervous if you aren't experienced.
