Re: Stick or Auto?
I wouldn't say a car means freedom. At least in a gigantic city like Chicago it doesn't. It means stuck in traffic and paying for parking if youre lucky enough to find it. Trains, buses or a bike can get me anywhere I need to be within an hour. A car just sounds stressful. Paying insurance, paying for gas, flat tires, breakdowns. Screw that I'll pay $2 to get on tne train and deal with drunks over that any day.Guana wrote:chisox100 wrote:
It's because you all drive on the wrong side of the road and have those weird ass round about things. Thats some scary stuff.
The only time I drive on the wrong side of the road is when I've been overdoing it on GTA (I've been known to get in the passenger side too, I just pretend I'm getting something out of the car and go back and do it properly five minutes later)
But Chisox ... you can't do roundabouts? it's just a bend that goes back to where it started, whatdo you drive? a fuckin' Chariot
I've seen round abouts on sidestreets but they're non existent on busy streets in the Midwest to my knowledge. Those giant ones in downtown London and Paris are scary.
You can only go as far as the bus line.
Or as far as your feet will take you, bro.
With a decent driving record, cars ARE affordable.
Basic maintenance prevents massive mechanical problems down the line.
I'm poor as fuck and still maintain a relatively newer car.
I live just outside of the city, so i travel between both all the time.
In pgh a car is definitely a necessity.
