I applaud anyone who tries to go at it without a car, but you know really, you should get a license if anything for I.D. purposes. Not having a driver's license, even if you're not in the habit of driving, in some situations makes you look "non-legit".

Yes mine is drastic....in about a month I'm moving to a place that just under 2 miles from my job. I'll be saving at least $40 a week in gas. Drastic, but it will help keep $$$ in my pockets. lol (Right now I commute 21 miles one way daily...Mon-Fri)

I applaud anyone who can get along without a car in a city like Atlanta, a place where it takes forever to get to the store.

Some people get impatient with the speed/acceleration of the scooter, but I just look at like this.....I'm saving them fuel by making them go a little slower!

For most of the people, they don't worry me to much, but I do keep my eye on everyone.

I just filled up my tank earlier this evening on my minivan. The most I've ever paid to fill it since I bought it almost five years ago. $62 and change. Ouch. That was not a pleasant sight to see at the pump. I wasn't even on dead empty either.
