    drive off

    Dear teachers

    Are these sentences correct?

    The car drove off of a bridge.
    The car drove off a bridge.


    Thanks

    Thanks
    Although you will see and hear it with "of", the word is completely redundant and unnecessary (and in my opinion, ungrammatical).

    The car drove off a bridge.
