Car-free life tests commuters' skills

Nice national AP story on how more Americans are trying the car-free lifestyle.

"Six years ago, Bruce Wilbur did what most Americans wouldn't dream of: he got rid of his car. And his minivan, too.

He started taking the bus to work - not a common sight in Rochester, N.Y. - and loved the switch. More recently, he's been biking to work.

Getting rid of the car gave him his sanity back, the 49-year-old Web designer said, and saved him a lot of money too."
