I've learned a lot in the month since I've been writing Curbing Cars here on Kinja. One is that we all love cars. Another is that they can leave big holes in our pockets.
That economic punch is a reason why a lot of people have rethought the way they get around. Somebody asked the other day, "What is this doing on Jalopnik?" The answer is that Matt Hardigree and I see transportation as a mix — cars, planes, streetcars, motorcycles, bikes and your own two feet.
If there's a change going on that affects the auto industry, you ought to be able to read and talk about it.
Lots of Jalops said this week that the "Driving Light" idea sounds familiar. You have a car, but you also use your bike. You take the bus to work. You let your spouse take the car to work, and you work from home. Or you own a couple of cars, but only use one the most.
