    Living in a walkable, cyclable town with good mass transit options means I only travel long distance because I want to. It's not an imposition as it is in more car-centric cities.

    No such zone exists for me, really, as I can always get where I want to go by bike, bus or train.

    I didn't mean to make any kind of judgement about Wahoonc's attitude toward cars. I apologise to him if it came off that way. I just wanted to share why I feel the way I do about them.

    As you probably know from reading my posts, I'm anti-car on moral grounds. I can't get behind a contraption that kills so many people, pollutes so much air, spews out so much greenhouse gas, leads to...

    Thanks, Anon06. I try not to worry too much about the trolls. Their ire is mostly a sign of their insecurity. Deep down they probably sense that the car-centric world that's been around for the last...

    I used it to refer to people who like cars and would like to see their prominent rôle in transport continue.

    Those prices are steep but, on the other hand, the minimum wage in the UK if you're 21 or older is £6.31, while in the US it's only the equivalent of £4.36. I guess we can complain here in Seville. A...

    Bike theft is rife in my city, but in over twenty years I've only had one stolen, and that was because I secured it with a flimsy cable lock. Lesson learned. I've been much more careful ever since...

    What some call asceticism others might consider the avoidance of conspicious consumption or living within one's means. This can lead to the freedom to use all of that money for other things. As an...

    Drunkards and freeloaders... My-my! It sounds like you associate with a rather unsavory crowd of characters. Most of my friends are car-free and nary a one fits into either of those categories.
