I'm having myself a little thought experiement. Could we live without a car?
Of course, really the question is "could my wife + 3 kids live without a car, in Seattle". It requires a great deal of tact to explain to someone why you are taking away their car, and why they'll like it. And I don't have a lot of tact...
We live in the suburbs now, but suppose we lived in the city? My understanding of city life is that things are easier to walk to than to drive to. And that buses in Seattle are very good.
Remember that we're talking about TWO newborns and a very active 4 year old.
Anyone reading this that has lived carless in the US with a family? Any advice?
