Letter: Dump the car

Click to follow
VYV HOPE-SCOTT comments on the supposed difficulties of not having a car (letter, 30 April). I have some suggestions.

Go shopping twice a week and buy less in one go; get a taxi (a lot less expensive than you think); honestly work out how much a car costs to run a week; demand home delivery in the price or threaten to take your business elsewhere.

I've also found that selling your car is one of the best ways of reducing your indirect taxation bill. It is easy to find a way out of doing things if you really want to.
