So, after talking about drinking (And, hey, doing a bit of it) I went to check out the traffic fatalities. About 42,000 people die in traffic accidents each year, about 17,000 or so of those are alcohol related.
Lotta dead people.
I've been car free for a few months now. Love it.
UPDATE: Just wanted to add that I'm car free simply because the economics works out that way, not because I'm making some statement or trying to save the Earth or whatever (not that there's anything wrong with that). When you realize you only drive your car a couple times per month, it's time to get rid of it...
