    Nope and It Stinks

    Well I guess part of the reason why I don't have a car is because I don't have my license quite yet (you can read the reasons why in my other experiences), but even when I go and get my license at the end of August I still won't have a car because my family can't afford a third...

    Don't Need One

    Now, come winter I may change my tune, but as it stands I have no need of a car.  I live within easy walking distance of a bus stop, in a city with excellent public transportation.  Why should I mess with a car?My budget is snug enough without worrying about the care and...

    So I Learned These Other Nifty Skills Instead:)

    I don't have a car, so I rode my bike. Then I didn't have a bike, so I learned to rollerblade. Then I returned the rollerblades, so I learned to skateboard. I LOVE not having a car.... I feel so cool and proud of myself, being a young woman who can skateboard like all those...

    Maybe In the Future

    i dont have a car...which is partly good since i CANNOT stand being stuck in traffic any time of the day. but then again, taking a public bus every now and then sucks too! i guess i'll just wait for the day when flying cars will be manufactured...or is that too much to ask for?

    No Car

    Yeah, it kind of stinks. I didn't get my driver's license until the last few weeks of my senior year of high school. Then, when I started college, my parents didn't let me take my truck to college. I guess a good thing about it is that I don't have to spend any money on gas...

    3 Years Now.

    I was already riding my bikes a great deal before I retired and almost all the time afterward. I had a truck and a van and didn't need both so I sold the truck. Then I got to thinking that the van was sitting and costing me $200 a month even if I didn't drive it. For $50 a day I...

    I Don't Really Need a Car

     I did have a car for a long time but as my lifestyle changed ie; I got a job close to home and started shopping at a supermarket down the road, I found that I had less need for one. It got to the point where I was only using it once a week, the rest of the time it just sat...

    Not Too Bad Without a Car

    I'm 22 and a college student.  I've never needed a car that badly so I never bothered getting a car or a driver's liscence.  For me their aren't alot of things I can't do because I don't have a car.  I feel that the American mentality has become to vehicle centric...
