Going to the store? Drive
Dropping off the kids to school? Drive
Going to the park? Drive
Work? Drive


Who here lives within walking distance to pretty much anything?

Not me. The closest grocery store is 15 miles away. I drive 45 minutes to work and my sons school is a 25 minute drive.

I live in NYC. I avoid driving at all costs.

We have a grocery store and park within two blocks of where we live. If I can't walk somewhere, I get on the subway.

Depends where you live. I can walk or bus to all of the above but I drive to the grocery store.

Tons of people don't live places where walking is convenient.

I can't even imagine going grocery shopping and not driving. How in the hell do you carry home 300 dollars worth of groceries by walking,bus or train. That's inconceivable to me

Meeee! I’m in NYC as well although I have to rely on the MTA for certain things (ugh lol). I cannot imagine having to drive everywhere. It’s whats keeping us from moving to the suburbs.
