When really if we could walk, cycle or even use a combination of walking and public transport, then we should. Think about it, the alternative to using your car will ALWAYS be cheaper and will always be the healthy option.
Reducing your reliance on your car will save you money, make you healthier and will be much more environmentally friendly.
