Tips for a Keeping a Car in the City:

“Wondering if you have any advice for me- I’m looking to purchase a car and keep it in the city. (I live in Logan Circle.) After more than a decade relying on mass transit and walking (here in and New York), I need to cut back on standing/walking due to a health condition.

How realistic is it to get a car in the city? I live .6 miles away from my employer, where parking 24/7 is offered for $250/month.

Any advice is helpful, but please don’t snark on me for getting a car while living in a walkable area. Trust me, if I could keep doing without a car, I would!”

The Washington Post reported on Friday:

“A woman swam to safety in the Chesapeake Bay Friday night after her car plunged 40 feet off the Bay Bridge following a collision.”

I can’t believe she was able to, thankfully, swim to safety. Absolutely amazing. And terrifying that it could happen.

She tells NBCWashington:

“Everything around me exploded,” Lake said. “Glass everywhere, airbag in my face and I felt that this was it.”
