"I hear people talking about how they couldn't live without a car. Then a few conversations later, they'll complain that their job doesn't pay enough and they don't have any money, without seeing the connection. The money I've saved from living car-free has helped me fund things like bike trips to Ireland and visits to farms in Tuscany." -- Jeffrey Rosenblum, 37
