Why Being Car-Free is Important to You: The most important thing to me about being car-free is the financial pluses it gives you. I bypass the costs of car ownership such as insurance, gas, and maintenance. Also, I avoid the headaches of parking, waiting in line for gas, as well as the five o’clock rush hour. All of this frees up my schedule and my wallet to give me more freedom to do what I want with my day.
