How many of you feel uncomfortable or unsafe driving right now but have no other choice due to financial instability?

    if you can avoid driving, please do. I hate hearing stories like this, that seem so easy to avoid, especially for people who are elderly or high risk by nature. i understand many people are doing it to make ends meet, and i feel for those people! it's a tough time. would recommend applying for unemployment to at least get something.

    The risk is greater then the benefit and it's not just about Covid but also the violence we have witnessed. A white driver was beaten in the Bronx because of his color and he wasn't a spring chicken to defend himself.
