There is absolutely no reason to be crowding the roads.
Instead, we can support people to make use of other modes, especially for short journeys. You can make use of fuel-efficient driving training, cycle training, route planning and recently, car sharing too. There are some great benefits when you share car ride, and we shall take a look at some of them, unconventionally and otherwise.
You Get To Meet New People
If you are someone who likes to network, then there is no better place than bonding over one of the biggest hardships of life- traffic. Car sharing is a great way to break the ice and make meaningful connections with new people. It is often a complaint of this generation that they don’t find time to meet up with new people because of their hectic work schedules. This just about solves that problem.
You Can Help The Environment
With lesser individual cars on the road and people huddling up together in carpool, lesser is the pollutants that are emitted. Carbon emissions can reduce drastically, by simply car-pooling. Not to mention the roads clearing up and you reaching your destination faster. It is a win-win situation if you ask me!
You Have More In The Bank By The Month’s End
Car sharing is not only a way to clear up the road and reduce carbon emission, but it saves your wallet from lightening! With more people carpooling, you can essentially split the gas bill and save yourself a fortune by the end of the year. This is not to mention the relief you get from not having a car- No more car maintenance, and insurance premium. No need for you to find a parking spot or get a parking ticket if you take a wee bit more time than needed.
If you are someone who travels a lot, then you can save money and carpool to shorter destinations and take your vehicle over longer distances. It truly is the best of both worlds!
Save Yourself From The Stress
Driving can be a stressful scenario- the constant honking and the bumper-to-bumper traffic- Both are enough to drive you mad! With traffic increasing and more cars pouring onto roads, the situation isn’t getting better any time soon, which is why you should do the smart thing and carpool.
While you are car-pooling, you can recline and relax while you are delivered to your destination. What better way to start a morning, than stress-free?
