Car Quiz 🚖 🚔




INTRODUCTION


This CST activities page is about cars and driving. It might be a 'sore' topic for some members who have had their licences revoked, so take care.



Ask members what their first cars were?

Did they pass their driving test first time?



Discuss the joys of driving - freedom, speed, going somewhere nice, getting home.

& the hazards of driving - dangerous drivers, traffic jams, petrol shortages



What is the best car or bus journey members ever took? What was the destination?

Has anyone ever driven, or been a passenger, in a fancy car, such as a limousine or Rolls Royce? What was the occasion?
