If I am considering a "not fun" trip where I will sit in traffic for hours or whatever I'll just take the bus.
pointless is when i am just going out to drive not to get anywhere. that is how i get in trouble on the street in both my car and bikes. sometimes i choose to drive my car to go do an errand or something i dont just drive in circles, other than at the track, for the hell of it. if i want to go fast and have fun i save that for the track, the limits are 10x that of the street and once i went had no desire to try and be a hooligan on the street. that is pointless. playing boy racer around town isnt fun because your leaving so much on the table.
