Why do I have a 3/4-mile commute?
I have a 3/4-mile commute because that’s the kind of commute I want — one that makes driving a car a silly choice.
I’m lucky. I had the opportunity to make this choice based on my profession and my socio-economic status. Others are not so lucky. Sadly, most of them are truly stuck.
And, perhaps more sadly, I think it’s possible a lot of people with hellish commutes either don’t think their commutes are hellish or think that hellish is normal — just the price you pay to live in suburbia.
Here’s a video to brighten your day or light a fire under your kiester — whichever.
