Quote from: drummerboy on November 12, 2017, 09:57:03 PMHow many families/couples here get by with one car?  Having a car for every member of the family it seems has become standard in the past 20 some years, I'm curious how many still get by with one.

Not just one car, but one driver.

Wife doesn't drive.

Currently I work 100% remote.

Wife works at a school less than 3 miles away. It's a huge part of why we cannot move to middle America - she will have to learn how to drive and we'd need another relatively newer, safer car.

Some people get by here with one driver/one car, but it is a pain in the neck!

That's the one thing I would like about European cities, they're built with pedestrians in mind, and I like taking strolls.  But I suppose you're crammed in closer too, and I need my space from people.

Doesn't feel that crammed, if you don't count my tiny apartment. I walk everywhere in town usually, and if not I take public transport. Quick, easy and cheap...and in the city, usually faster than taking a car.

I would like to be out in the country though. Much prefer that option.

Can't beat the country!  I grew up farming and know.  At least where I live now isn't bad, I'm literally on the last block of town and a short walk brings me to farmland.

4 cars and 7 motorcycles here for 2 of us. Our son got his own car as well. My confessor said I need to stop it :wag:. But I do change oil and do other maintenance myself. Collectively we add 60k non commercial miles a year.
