    certainly much more difficult to live car-free in the suburbs, especially North American suburbs that are spread out so far. From the picture it looks like you're really in the countryside, which is the kind of place where driving a car is necessary. But the fact is that 40 percent of all trips are within two miles of the home (at least in the U.S.), so those short trips that are walkable or bikeable is where there's a lot of room for car alternatives.
