in how to live well without owning a car by chris balish he raises the issue of feeling limited in what you can do. this is one of my biggest concerns with going car-free but he points out that you most likely will be limited in some of the things you want to do but ditching your car also allows you a tremendous amount of freedom in many other ways. it's all a matter of balancing out your needs. what can you sacrafice? what can't you? have you exhausted all other possible alternatives to driving? if you only have one or two things you need the car for, is it worth the expense of payment, insurance, gas, parking, and the expense to the environment etc. etc. just for those one or two things?
Nope, pretty sure we don't. But if we did rent a car I'd rent it for maybe one weekend per month, or a couple days when I go to visit my country living relatives.
