I-86 Truck & Auto Repair Question of the Day: Do You Carpool?

In today's message we will talk about something many Falconer drivers do every day, or, perhaps feel guilty about not doing. We're talking about carpooling. Whether you drive to work with some colleagues or take turns driving with other parents in the neighborhood to get the kids to school, you are aware of the advantages and disadvantages of ride sharing. Pros: You can save on gas, car maintenance outlays, and parking fees. U.S. carpoolers save over one billion dollars every year.1 In the case of carpooling kids to school, you save time by not having to drive every day. Where available, you can use the carpool lanes on highways and zoom past the single drivers in the stop-and-go lanes. When it's not your day to drive, you can sit back and close your eyes or get a jump start on your work to-do ... read more
