I like to think I am doing my bit for the world by not putting another car on the road. I sold my car in 2000 before I went overseas and just never got around to getting another one. Sure, it can be tough relying on public transport but I am very excited about the idea of carsharing that is available in Melbourne. Above is my local Flexicar, Goldilocks. I take her out when I have some major zipping around to do and when I don't need her, I happily enjoy the trams and trains where I can sit with a book and an ipod and let someone else worry about the traffic.
