Place the character(s) below the car layer. ANIMATE characters DRIVING_0005_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.48.18 PM

If you would like, add another layer of the other side of the car to add depth.

Make a BG (background) layer of a road or scenic view. ANIMATE characters DRIVING_0006_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.48.37 PM

Animate the character(s) in their own layer. ANIMATE characters DRIVING_0008_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.49.05 PM

Animate images passing by, and move the BG to fit the scene. Move the BG closer, left, right, or back to match the cars direction. ANIMATE characters DRIVING_0011_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.49.26 PM

Add bumps in the road if you’d like…ANIMATE characters DRIVING_0010_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.49.15 PMANIMATE characters DRIVING_0012_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.49.30 PM

In this example, I copied and pasted the bump movement to repeat.ANIMATE characters DRIVING_0014_Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 8.49.42 PM

You can also add a wheel and have the character turn the wheel while driving.
