As long as they become experienced dancers before they get into a car - or
you will find drivers:

making little loops before turning right or left.

changing directions to go the opposite way half way through a round-about.

sitting in the outside lane of the motorway/highway at 25 km an hour coming
to a dead stop every time they see an exit.

And even in the case of experienced dancers:

Determined that they have the right of way and the other drivers are in the
wrong.

Turning right when they should go left.

Showing little consideration for the 25 km an hour drivers in the outside
lane despite them being clearly marked as Learner Drivers.

Many years ago, I read a letter to the editor in The Glasgow Herald I
believe, that referred to Scottish Country Dancing in connection
with driving a car. I'd have to dig to find the photocopy, but the
gist was that all drivers should be required to take Scottish Country
dancing lessons, because of the teamwork, following the track,
keeping your eyes open, knowing where you're going, cooperating,
being considerate of your fellow dancers, etc. etc.
