I’m even a car/motorcycle guy and it still frustrates me beyond belief that the US is such a car dependent country. The affordable cars and insurance just aren’t there which is disappointing to see as there’s no good alternative as public transport suffers a lot here.


Get a bicycle then.


I have a bicycle, the problem is that most places do NOT have the infrastructure for safe bicycling or even safe walking, so trying to do so is a virtual suicide mission!

Meanwhile in germany: I pay 230€ (\~$242) to be a student and can use public transport for free. I take a train to the city - takes me 10 minutes - and I can get to everything. Postoffice, Groceries, Restaurants, Government Buildings for new IDs and registration stuff. I can get to like 6 stores by just walking there in 3 mins. And I get to have a good education w/o going bancrupt. I just don't get the artifical push given to car companies by building cities like crap-car-hell.


I am SOOO jealous!

NO, actually with the exception of rural areas, it would be viable in suburbs and cities even as they are!

Sad thing is that the car for that price right now is rare. In my area, the cars that were around that price a few years ago are now nonexistent. I’ve seen those cars going for 3-4000. It’s just ridiculous!
