Just roll with it

October 28th, 2022 by

Our vehicles are a big part of our life. They’re wings of freedom, a shield against the harsh elements of nature, and the wagon allows us to carry anything we may need wherever we go. If you don’t have one, maybe it’s time to reconsider.

Rolling Around Town

The average human speed is about 12 kilometers per hour, about a third of what a car does in a low-speed zone and around 10% of what it usually does on highways.

You don’t need a calculator to know that a car can get you farther in an hour than your feet in a day. Walking these days is less of a necessity and more of a leisure activity, not to mention a great way to exercise and relax. Whether you live in a small town or a big city, the best bet to get anywhere is a good set of wheels.

Nature isn’t always your Friend

September and October rolled into Airdrie, making the temperature fall by single digits. To some, this may be a cozy autumn breeze, but let’s not forget that water freezes at 0 Celsius, and that’s what most of our bodies are made of.

Rain, snow, hail, and sleet may not stop the postal service (or so their motto goes), but it will do a number on you.

A stroll down to your favourite coffee shop may be manageable if it’s a block away (even in this weather), but why torture yourself when you can instead turn up inside your own nest with wheels?

It’s not just about you

Now let’s say that wherever you need to be is far from where you are, and the clouds decided to throw a party with everything they have at their disposal. But, stubborn as you are, you’re walking.

Except, small problem, it’s not just you!

There will be times when other people accompany you, be it friends and family, or objects that you require for a task or that need to be moved to and fro. Sure, you can be stubborn and use a backpack, but good luck taking all your groceries home.

Tools are meant to make our lives easier

There are many reasons to choose not to buy a car, from economical to ecological. We’re not saying you should drive around everywhere; if you can and prefer to walk, that’s fine. But there’s a reason people usually keep a toolbox around the house: just in case.

If your hurdle is financial, the solution might be simpler than you think!
