    This should be a multiple choice poll.

    I have a midsize car, a bike and I walk.

    I drive a small car along with taking the bus occasionally. I miss living in DC where we had a metro system

    The reason it is not is I wanted to see the most oft used form of transportation...not every possible form that you may use. I walk, bike, drive an SUV, fly an airplane, ride buses, take cabs...but for my personal transportation I drive my personal vehicle the most.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    To make a long story short, I just didn't have the time to deal with it in my late teens. And then when I was 18, I left to go abroad. Most other countries are smaller, and more densely populated, and thus they have really good public transit, especially in the cities. I never needed a car. In fact, having a car in most of the places I lived in was nothing but a burden.

    But America is a different story. Unless you live in one of a handful of really huge cities, you really do need a car. And now I'm back, and have been for a while. I still don't have my damn license at 22, and it is getting more and more frustrating. I should deal with that sometime in the near future...
    This is my story, pretty much, except for I've been saying that I should get my license for longer. I'm 30. My husband is supposed to be teaching me and giving me some wheel time. So far that means pulling the car in and out of the garage once in a while.

    Suggestion

    Get him to drive at night to a large parking lot without the concrete blocks between the various rows of stalls

    A vast wide open area with very little potential to hit things would help get you comforatable behind the wheel

    If you lived somewhere where it snows doing the above in a snow covered parking lot is even more fun

    He has talked about making me go into work with him one night when he is in a patrol unit and I would take our car to a parking lot in his area and just drive around for the night.

    I drive a Ford F150 4x4 and my wife drives a Mercedes Benz E350. We live in an area that has no mass transit at all.
