I had a coworker that drove half a mile to work. He'd also make daily trips to the convenience store to buy cigarettes half a mile away too.

I rode a bicycle 7 miles each way the last 2 years I worked there.

My wife was walking half a mile to work until we had our daughter. Now she drives to save time since she comes home at lunch to feed the girl. I don't really think it saves time, as the walk is 5 min and more direct, and driving is a bit longer.

I've been using the Segway mini around this small town.
