Do you NOT DRIVE????........
I CAN drive, and I WOULD drive, but I don't have a car so that's difficult! Thank God we live in a small town, everything is within about a mile so I can walk anywhere I need to. I'm actually trying to find a car so I can have it for things like grocery shopping and going into town for things like wal-mart or what not.
Even if I did have a car I'd probably still do a lot of walking. It's been good for me, I feel better and I've lost quite a bit of weight.

I dont drive at the moment and right now im fonding it great. it can be tough mainly in winter cause of the cold weather but honestly not only am i saving money on not driving ( petrol, insurance) but im keepin me n ma lil one fit. The only real thing is travel and work id have to say are the hardest but cause i love gettin outdoors i go camping and outback as much as i can to keep me n ma lil one busy. As for work i do it at home with ma studies as right now im studying conservation but its hard gettin out to the shelters as there arent any round here.
I had to destroy my International Driving permit that I got from AAA because I needed the attached photo to get broadband installed in my flat in India. :)
However, I relish that I can (legally) drive when I get back home to the US! And, I DID use the IDP a few times before I destroyed it. xx
We have a hired driver and a company car for our stay abroad. I'm mobile during office hours. :)

No driving! I would be lost without my car and licence. Like the last person said, it gives me my independence also. But it did take me a long time to get my licence. I'm interested in seeing why people don't want to get there licence. I figure, if I can do it, so can you!

You don't drive ?? How do you handle it ? I live on the outskirts of a small town. We have no public transportation. Driving is an absolute necessity for me. And, it gives me a world of independence. Just interested in what reasons you have for not driving ?
Choice ? Circumstance ? I drive approx. 18 km to work too. I could see it if I lived in a city with reliable public transportation... But I'd still want a car for weekend escapes.
Out of interest, my hubby and I have two vehicles - an SUV we use for carting large articles including grandparents, kids and wheelchairs. It's great on long road trips.
And, for day to day ( mostly summer ) I drive a Mustang convertible. Fabulous.
