Which transportation vehicle do you prefer?
Modern transport ation in urban areas has provided us with vehicles of various kinds, the four in the pictures being the most popular.
I think the private car is the most comfortable and driving it is really a lot of fun. I long for a car of my own and I always admire those car-owners. However, I don't have so much money to afford such a luxury, not to mention the annual tax and fees of various kinds.
Although less comfortable, the taxi is convenient. It comes with a wave of hand. Besides, I don't have to take the trouble of caring for it. Nnevertheless, I have to annually pay a handsome sum of money if i go to work/school by taxi every day. This is beyond my financial budget. In addition, I am afraid of meeting hostile taxi drivers.
I will firmly refuse the motorcycle. It's dangerous. I am always shocked by the flying motorcyclists and worried about the potential accidents. So, riding a bike leaves my prefe rence. I feel free riding a bike and riding among the multitude of bicycles is a sort of enjoyment. A bicycle is far much cheaper than any of the other three means of trans portation. If my bike should be stolen, I would have no hesitation to buy a new one.
In short, I prefer riding my bike, but that doesn't mean I don't like the car. Sooner or later, I will have a car of my own.
