アメリカで運転は避けられない

4

そんなわけで毎日運転しております。

免許は?

日本で取ったよ(゜д゜#)!!

遡ること数ヶ月前。齢三十にして未だ免許を持っていなかった自分に、降って湧いたシカゴ行きの話。
免許なしにアメリカで過ごすのは到底無理。
とうとう重い腰を上げて、若い人に交じって頑張ってきた(子連れママもちょろちょろいたけど)。

とにかく時間がなかったので、金に物を言わせて予約を優先的に取れるプランにし、規定回数を1回オーバーしたものの、危機感により発揮された驚異の集中力をもって2か月弱で取得。日本での練習もそこそこに、シカゴに飛んできた。

結論から言うと、アメリカ(少なくともシカゴ郊外は)の方が日本より遥かに運転しやすい。
道は広いし、右左折専用レーンがある交差点が多いし、路駐はないし、駐車場も広くて止めやすい。

実はアメリカで免許を取得して運転するというオプションもなくはなかったのだが、これだけ運転しやすいと、日本に戻っても怖くて運転できなかったと思うので日本で取っておいて良かった。
まぁそもそもアメリカの免許は日本の免許に切り替えるときに試験が免除にならないので、結局教習所に通うはめになっていたと思われる。

ハンドルが逆なことや、通行帯が逆なのは意外とすんなりなじめた。
そもそも日本式にも慣れないまま来たのであんまり関係ないか?

ちなみに、こちらに来て最初にあてがわれた車がこれ。

JeepのSUV。

運転できるわけないだろーーー!普通の車にしてくれ、と言ったら

「アメリカではこれが普通の車さ!」

だと。確かにこんな車がびゅんびゅん走っているが。
当面は他に選択がないということで、1週間ほど乗った後、無事セダンに替えてもらえた。
