Con "drive, walk, rode" etc. decimos "up", "down" y "over"; cuando oi "up", pienso que ha manejado hacía el norte, pero, no me importa, es una expresión (phrasal verb) sin importancia. Podría decir "here" o "to this place" en lugar de "up".
Q: O que significa drive thru?

Q: O que significa drive along?
A: I'm not sure, but I think it emphasizes following the road. Also, usually "drive the road" is incorrect. Something like "drive down/along/up" is used, and there is little real difference in meaning.
Q: O que significa drive along?
A: Usually “along” after a verb of motion, means “by the side of” or “in the same direction as” “or straight ahead” or “following”
Walk along the river. Walk beside the river. Walk in the same direction as the river.
Continué to drive along this road. Continue to drive in the same direction on this road.

Sometimes it can mean “continue, or keep going ahead”
A policeman may tell motorists who are slowing down to look at an accident to “drive along!”
This means “continue going ahead. Don’t stop.

So drive along means “continue to go in this direction” or “continue traveling ahead”
It adds the connotation of “don’t stop”

Along gives the feeling of continuous motion forward.

Q: Why does 'drive sb round the bend' mean 'to make sb angry/crazy'? I realise that 'drive sb up the wall' evokes someone trying desperately to escape something by climbing up the walls. Then what does 'round the bend' look like?
A: So I think the phrases you are thinking about are, "drives me around the bend," and "drives me up the wall!"

You would say these when you are very annoyed or bored, and means that something is making you feel crazy.

The "bend" comes from the word, "loopy," which is a very informal word for crazy. A "loop" is when a line "bends" in on itself, thus, to be driven around the bend, means to be loopy, which means to me crazy!

I know it's confusing, but I hope it helps!
Q: I want to tell" drive safe" to my friend but she is not a driver. But I want to tel her l" be careful" can I use " drive safe" to non driver?

But you can also just say "be careful" and that would be fine too. :-)
Q: I lose my drive to go out with the small kids in weather like this. soa natural?
A: To lose one's drive is usually used with something you are normally very motivated about, like a goal you're working towards.
"I don't feel like taking the kids out in weather like this." sounds more natural.
