The cost of mobility

Its amazing how owning a set of wheels can liberate you.

Personal transport comes with a freedom that allows you to spread your wings and fly, not quite literaly, but even if it was, the cost of ownership keeps you chained firmly to the ground.
Just the normal wear and tear, from tyres to oil and filters is a continuous drain not to mention the ever escalating fuel price.

Its almost like having another member of the family that you need to feed and house and clothe, then there are those horrific medical bills when things go wrong.

My vehicle insurance on two vehicles combined with the annual vehicle licence fee is almost the equivalent of my medical insurance for a family of four.

Freedom has a price, is it worth it?
