Last night, my friend Nick (a native of London) was telling me how his father gave him his old car: "You really don't need a car in London. It's completely unnecessary. Every time I start it up and try to go anywhere, I'm literally stuck in traffic for at least an hour, and I get bored. So the car just stays in the carpark." After discussing the pros and cons of Los Angeles living, Nick asked, "If the Los Angeles public transportation system was improved, do you think people would actually use it? Or will they just stick to their cars because that's what they're accustom to?"
If LA's Metro was in the same league as other transportation systems in cities like London, New York, Chicago, even San Francisco, would you give up your car? Weigh in with your opinion in the comments below.
