English term or phrase: driven
How to translate it into Polish in a sentence ' Wan't national carbon tax have driven these dinosaurs to extinction?' ? Can I say 'Czy panstwowy podatek za emisje dwutlenklu wegla nie doprowadzi do wiginiecia tych dinozaurow?' (dinosaurs here refers to big 4x4s cars)

Polish translation:doprowadził
Explanation:
I agree with your translation, in some Polish frazes 'driven' means 'doprowadził' as a past form of 'doprowadzać' like for example 'You drive me crazy' - 'Doprowadzasz mnie do szaleństwa'
