If you use a car, they do.
I think you missed my point. Bike to work, tele-commute, mass transit, move to within walking distance from your job. Nobody forces me to drive a car either.
I see your point and it is a valid one, I’d love to live within biking distance. My wife and I both have about a 20 mile drive and it is in opposite directions. Around here jobs are not around the corner. Ultimately your right it is our choice to drive a car, but we really don’t have that choice at the end of the day.
no choice if you ask me. my hometown is a ghostown now. my parents used to walk or bike to whatever they needed until wal-mart and stop and shop just ghost towned all three downtowns in the area. now everyone for a fifty mile radius needs to drive like a 30 mile round trip just to go to get what they need from the “new town center” wal mart home depot staples blah blah blah…when i grew up the rents had one car they used very little. now they need two and they use them twice as much as they did before. but i suppose they should just move right ?
