英会話ブログ その542     Car-related Idioms (1)

2014/12/09

The car is a very important part of North American culture.

Train and bus networks are very bad and distances between places are much farther that they are in Japan.  Therefore, unless you are living in one of a few large American cities that have good metro and bus systems, then you are part of the 95% of the country that needs cars to move around.

People spend a lot of time in their cars and therefore have good stereo systems and other added features to make their car rides more pleasant.

One thing that North America's obsession with automobiles has produced is a large number of car-related idioms.  Here are some to get you started.  All are common.                                      (J.F)
