: i was wondering if any one who has cp or any other disability was interested in telling me about their first driving experiences. Any of you who have actually passed their road test and have had assistance from the dmv or have used modifications in a car. i am a freelance writer and want to hear what you have to say
You may get better a better response if you said, please tell me about your driving experiences with modifications and assistance from the DMV. The phrase, "those of you who actually have passed your driving test..." came across as unfriendly to me. I was willing to share my experience driving, but not after that comment. That particular comment made me feel that if my description was included in a work, that I would either be pittied, put up on a pedastel for my driving abilities, or somehow be ridiculed in the book.
