We recently sold my car to my nephew and I plan to just use a bike as transport until at least the end of the year. As I’m full time at Uni I figure that I don’t have to worry about helmet hair, it takes me only a few minutes longer to get to school, I don’t need to worry about parking, and I’m doing my bit for the environment. Besides that, I don’t have to worry about paying car insurance, rego, or fuel and servicing costs. All up, my bank balance is better off, I’m better off, and the world is better off by me not having a car. We’re getting on fine without it too.
Who knows, I might decide this is a permanent arrangement.
