Riding around in a heavily armored limousine is one of the perks of being president of the United States. Though it's fair to speculate that some American presidents, including President Joe Biden, probably have some regrets about handing over their keys and precious time behind the wheel.
That's because presidents and vice presidents, as well as other high-profile officials, aren't allowed to drive — except under very special circumstances — even after their terms end. According to CNBC, relinquishing the right to drive isn't actually a law, it's for security and is enforced by the Secret Service. Those who drive these officials are highly trained in defensive maneuvers, and well, sitting in the backseat is just one of the trade-offs of becoming a leader of the free world.
So what does that mean if a president happens to love driving? Cars can be divisive, but they can also bring us together. Interested in a nonpartisan look at some of the car guys who have occupied the White House? We'll kick off with President Joe Biden and go backward in time from there.
