As we just , with rising gas prices SUVs are becoming even more impractical and are glutting the used-car market. Brian Unger, in his Unger Report segment on NPR’s Day to Day asks the question, “What to do with your SUV now that it’s bigger than your bank account?”
Now, councils Unger, is the time for compassion for SUV owners, not ridicule. While we’ll revel in “I told you so” for a little while, we need to move on and offer constructive feedback to those stuck owning SUVs, unable to sell them off.
From the Unger Report, Things you can do with you SUV now that you can’t afford to drive it:
Live in it. A mobile home that doesn’t make you feel trashy. Or gauche.
Turn it into a planter. Convert the dome light into a grow light.
Use your SUV to transport other people and help out a now overburdened mass transit system.
Turn your SUV into a childcare center or nursery school that can come to parents in any weather condition.
Listen to the great clip in its entirety from NPR.org – well worth the time!
