When I was in high school and first learned to drive, I was excited about driving. Learning to drive meant freedom. I didn't care about how much it cost, and I didn't know about the environmental impact of driving.

But as I've gotten older, cars are no longer as charming and problem-free as they used to be. These days I have a car, but I prefer to walk, ride my bike, or take the bus as much as possible.
