I still own a car, so technically I'm not car-free. However, I never drive it (it currently has expired plates, not to mention low tires and a weak battery), and am seriously considering selling it. I would really like to avoid the expense of registering and licensing the car, auto insurance, and the occasional tank of gas - all to have it around "just in case". What's stopping me from ditching it is the question of what to do if I "need" a car now and then. (For instance, at some point I need to travel about 30 miles south, to the county seat, to visit the DMV for my new driver's license or state ID.) I live in a relatively isolated small town, no public transit, no car rental. My best idea so far is to find somebody whose car I could borrow or even rent - but I still wouldn't have auto insurance, so I couldn't legally drive a borrowed car. Let's have some other ideas for those of us who are in a similar situation.
