    We need more context. Can you post the whole sentence/paragraph in which the phrase was contained. We can guess but we might get it wrong.

    Please note that we do not put a space before a question mark or an exclamation mark.

    I would guess the phrase means a person is afraid of driving a motor vehicle, or perhaps even of crossing the road.
