Re: Where Cars Fit In The Future
I personally don't want to own a car. The expense of owning & maintaining one, gas, parking, etc. seems too high to justify if you add it all up, particularly when you factor in insurance (which goes up in the event you ever actually need it, ensuring you never get your money's worth). I live about 20 minutes outside of Boston, so while it is Urban here, I can imagine it's only that much worse in the city proper. I think a combination of over-and-under-regulation makes it rough on drivers. You're required to have insurance by law (here, at least) but the insurance companies can do mostly whatever they want to you. Officers can camp in front of toll booths (oh, yeah, toll booths are a thing) and give you a ticket for just about anything. Surely there's a better way.
