    That is... actually a pretty good point.

    I really can't understand all this hate about driving. I love it and miss it here. Its not worth me getting a car here though as there is a fairly decent public transport network. It just takes ages.

    At least I can look forward to my road trip!

    Car accidents over here are not a big deal. My friend is doing his fifth year this august and he's wrecked 2 rentals and done some serious damage to others. They still keep giving him a job.

    Yeah, there's a couple I know who've been involved in a few traffic accidents and they're both still employed. As long as you've got good insurance and don't kill anyone, it's probably all good.

    It shouldn't be, though, because some of these people can't drive for sh*t.

    I've stuffed a few cars over the years. Thats just life on Japanese roads for you. If you're not crashing you're not pushing the car hard enough.

    I have a nice set up and I really don't need a car. I take a taxi to get to one of my schools that I work at once a week, but that's a lot cheaper than getting a car.

    Ini is right about one thing though, I might be screwed in an emergency situation. I'd need to depend on the kindness of others if the trains stopped running.

    Take it from a couple who lives amongst a bunch of JETs who "don't need cars." If you're the sort of person who depends on the kindness of others on an even somewhat regular basis, those others probably kindof hate you a little from time to time. Also, in the event of a zombie apocalypse or a caesium 137 shower, those people are totally f*cked if they think they can turn to us for help.

    ?


    I don't get those kinds of people, back when I didn't have a car I would walk everywhere.

    6km to school? Not a problem.

    I'd just have to wake up early.

    As for the topic, I imagine the only ones who wouldn't need a car are those that live in "The city", with the convenient public transportation . Even then you'd benefit from one when going on trips.


    By the way, whatever happened to the Tokyo placements?

    Is that still a thing or was it vaporware?

    In case of zombie apocalypse I can steal a car. I know how to drive well. Just don't have a jappy license. My wife has a license so on the rare occasions we need a car we can rent one.
