Whether you remember them or not, everyone dreams. Dreams can last anywhere between five minutes to an hour, and occur dozens of times throughout each night. Some leave us feeling blissful, while others, often called nightmares, can cause a rapid heart rate and cold sweats.

Since we drive, or are near, vehicles on a daily basis, it’s not surprising they often appear in our dreams.

These dreams are meant to encourage us to reassess our lives and determine if we need to make a change or, at the very least, slow down.
