   schema:description "Our romance with cars has become a very troubled entanglement. Today's relationship with the automobile brings pollution, sprawl, congestion, noise, injury, and even death. Yet we continue to live with cars at an escalating cost to ourselves and the environment. Divorce Your Car! is the ultimate guide to liberating ourselves from our addiction to cars and the automobile culture. It is full of inspiring examples and realistic actions we can take now as individuals and as communities to reduce our auto-dependence. Divorcing your car can take many forms, from simply using cars less to not owning one at all. In North America, well over 50 percent of trips are under four miles. Each day there are countless of opportunities for people to re-meet their feet, board a bike, take a train, or hop on a bus. This practical guide shows how divorcing a car can be fun, healthy, money-saving, and helpful to the planet in the process."@en ;
