Okay we all know North Americans are way too addicted to their cars, and I'm sure its easy to come up with examples of ridiculous uses of cars. Like someone who would drive to their neighbours house or to their end of their own driveway to get the mail and then back up again.
Here's one: one place I worked had two locations about 10 minute walk apart. Parking was in high demand at both locations and despite a 5 storey parking garage there was a long wait list for parking so most people who drove to work had to rent driveway space from nearby residents.
A co-worker insisted we take his car to a meeting at the other location because "it's raining", despite the fact that it took us *at least* 5 minutes to walk to his car in the other direction, then we couldn't park too close to the second location and I think it cost $ to park there too.
What are your examples where people's addiction to using their car boggles your brain? Or if you're brave admit to any frivolous ways you used a car in the past.
