Are We Finally Done With Cars?
What happens when two car enthusiasts decide that they might be done with cars? There are obviously problems and expenses that come along with being fans of older vehicles. But beyond our simple car hobby lie much larger issues. Automakers and car dealers are pushing larger, less efficient vehicles loaded an increasing level of distracting technology inside. Car-centric road design is often unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists and pushes a car dependent lifestyle on everyone—whether you like it or not. Last year saw the most pedestrian fatalities in the US in 40 years. Our cities have provided us with few options to safely walk or bike with our kids. Are we finally done with automobiles? What can we do about all this?
