Dr Pixie McKenna talks cars, speeding and dream locations

Your current car? Range Rover Sport-White

Is a car important to you? Ironically two wheels is my preferred mode of transport but this is our family car.

What does it say about you? That secretly I’m a wannabe footballers wife. Let’s face it Range Rovers are for the country…

What do you use your car for? The school run is done by bike and my work commute is by train.The car is for the fun parts of our life,our family road trips!

What sort of state is your car in (inside or out)? My husband is really tidy so it’s clean although my daughter occasionally smuggles food in so you could find a rotten cheese sandwich stashed down the side of the seat.

What’s in the boot and the glove compartment?  Dog blankets in the boot and wet wipes, pens, ketchup, lip gloss and buckets of receipts in the glove compartment.

How would you describe your driving, then? Fairly terrible. I practically sit on the steering wheel when I drive and I can’t park.

Any bad habits? Not indicating!!

Ever crashed, got a parking ticket or points? No crashes but yes speeding fine in a 30 zone

Have you ever experienced road rage (either passively or actively)? Yes…I’ve had the V sign and had a guy get out of his car to abuse me. I’m not the road rage type so I just smile the biggest smile back at them and hope for the best!

Have you ever had any romantic encounters in a car? You are making me blush…no not yet!

What was your first car? VW polo

Who taught you to drive? A patient of my Dad’s who was a driving instructor.He taught my 4 older brothers,and mistakenly thought I’d take to it like them but realised after about 20 lessons I was still in the slow lane.

Any driving test tales? On my first driving test I mounted the roundabout !

Do you have a favourite car gadget? Without a doubt the fridge!!!

What music do you listen to on the road? A lot of Ed Sheeran

Dream drive in a dream location? Driving to West Cork on a sunny summers evening as I’m about to start my holidays.

Who would be your dream passenger? My husband …although I think he would take over after 10 minutes…as he hates my driving

Passenger you’d least like? Donald Trump!!
