From my perspective medical situations take priority over LCF. As an example even homeless people in our area are car/truck/van intensive.

At at a local park the other day a homeless person collapsed. First a fire truck showed. About 30 feet long with 4 men on the truck. A ambulance showed up with two more men and took the person to, get this, not the closest hospital but one in the next town over. They had to get to one with bed space.

One of my friends got hurt at a bike race last year and they picked him up in a helicopter. He ended up in a hospital 30 miles away. All his friends drove their cars to see him maybe once or twice in the month he was there. They sent him home using a service called Care-A-Van.

Yes technically people can call themselves car free but unless you are part of a remote tribe living in a third world country cars will be part of your life. You donít have to own one but that doesnít mean you will not be using one.
