Driving Addicted


Eris Steward, an 81-year-old Australian, experienced addiction to cars in an original way. He left home to go shopping one morning, but ended up more than 600km away. “I just went out on the road to have a drive, a nice peaceful quiet drive. I didn’t know where I was going but I knew it was somewhere, and with a bit of luck I would eventually find my wife again,” he said. It was only after eight hours of driving that he started to get worried and stopped to ask the police for directions. When the policemen asked him why he had waited so long before asking, Steward told them that he couldn’t stop, simply because he “liked to drive”.
