He says 'Go car lite. Do things at home or in your neighbourhood much of the time'.
I'm lucky to live somewhere with wonderful walks and wildlife, so it's no hardship to stay at home. I also work from home so don't need to use the car much.
For early 21C living this is quite simple I guess - no commuting, diesel fumes, traffic jams, parking tickets, road rage....(it's also a 30 mile round trip to the shops!)
But I do need a bit of city buzz now and then. We have great public transport with the kind of friendly bus drivers who drop you at your door, not the nearest bus stop. Two buses and a ferry - it's a bit of a trek, but it also provides me with thinking time, and writing time.
To go to a concert in the city we have to use the car, and have still had to leave during an encore occasionally to catch the last ferry....and if the ferry is not running (gale force 8) it's a long dark drive home, over the dramatic and beautifully named 'Rest and Be Thankful' pass.
