Is driving a privilege or a right?
My friend and I can’t seem to come to an agreement on this question, so maybe you can help. Is driving a privilege or a right?
Answer provided by
Driving is a privilege, not a right, and it is an enormous responsibility. You’re being trusted to drive thousands of pounds of metal and glass around at high speeds, and unless you can demonstrate your ability to do that safely, the privilege will not be extended to you.
Because your ability to drive safely can directly impact those around you, states require that you pass certain tests indicating you know how to adhere to rules and regulations associated with road safety. Failure to drive safely can result in a number of consequences, including:
- License suspension
- License revocation

So my dear friend—we’ll call her “Gladys”—recently entered the witness protection program.
