Winning Advice #1 : Buy A Shorter Car

The first in a possibly short series of short and helpful winning advice.

If you own a private motorised vehicle, of a kind with four wheels, glass windows, a roof, an internal combustion or hydrid or electrical engine and steering wheel, my advice to you is, when it comes time to replace it : buy a shorter car.

1. A shorter car means less fuel burned.
2. A shorter car means less materials and energy used in its manufacture.
3. A shorter car means less congestion on the roads.
4. A shorter car means less problems to find a parking space.
5. A shorter car means less fuel used in shipping it (if it’s foreign-made).

There. That didn’t hurt now, did it ?

All the real solutions are simple.

Buy less. Use less.
