My wife is one of those. She drive 50-60 miles every day visiting nursing homes. For an 'office static' job, 15 miles is relatively far.
Additionally, I estimated, 15 as the crow flies. Turns out to be more like 18 each way on the road.
If your non 'office static' job does not pay your gas while you're working... Find Another Job!
The US is not very biker friendly. Regardless, I could not afford the time lost for riding my bike. It is Much cheaper for me to work 8hrs and
drive, than 7hrs and ride my bike.
Similar scenario applies to vehicle selection. I drive an older 4runner. If I were to sell that to get a newer hybrid or electric car, the cost of
insurance alone would outweigh the difference in gas consumed. My insurance on the 4runner is $12/month. Premium on a new car would be more like 90
- 100. The trade of is not worth it! So I stick with ole trusty!
Furthermore, you did not disprove the point I was trying to make. Read Carefully!
