Two-Wheel Drive

In the small, tight streets of Rome driving a car is almost impossible. Cars are usually bumper to bumper and gas is almost $10 a gallon in American prices which makes driving a vehicle even more unrealistic. To compensate for the unsafe driving conditions, a lot of people I saw drove a moped, rode a bicycle, and even walked. These methods of transportation were much more reliable and environment friendly. Maybe we as Americans can learn from these people and find more sustainable and Eco friendly methods of travel when we can. Maybe we would find ourselves getting from place to place more easily than we thought.
