Do You Drive?

To those who tell Sami to "go back to Britain" because of his post Being Carless in America is Like Second-Class Citizenship , remember that it was British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who said "A man who, beyond the age of 26, finds himself on a bus can count himself as a failure."- Americans are not alone in looking down their noses at people who do not drive. But Sami is right; "The fact is that being carless in most of America is, without doubt, a major impediment to social inclusion and economic well-being. Without a car, you're basically a second class citizen." But how many of our readers are in this class, whether by choice or necessity?
