My wheels

The DJ posed this question over the radio yesterday morning, in lean times, what is the one thing one cannot give up. Honestly I cannot give up the freedom of driving around. Though the petrol price is on the rise, the expensive parking lots are getting harder to find and not forgetting the ERP gantries.

I can dine out less, have one less pair of shoes but I want my freedom to drive.

I too feel a little hanadicapped when I have no wheels. I know of an older lady who aged and deteriorated after her children took away her wheels. She is more than 80y/o and suffers from knee problems, and her freedom to explore has been curtailed without her wheels, as no matter what, taxis are just not the same :P

could be worse if you were in m'sia, given the messy public transport system.

when i worked in s'pore years ago, my family & i managed to rely just on public transport, & that was before the NE & Circle lines were available. but i reckon with the kids growing up, it's difficult without a car esp with the school & tuition errands to contend with.
