Compelling reasons to get a car

A 6 1/2 foot tall colleague of mine was mugged for his cellphone by a guy with a knife, in broad daylight, outside the business park, on a busy main road.

My commute is an hour from door to door each way - but when it rains, it can be 1 1/2 hours.

(It rains a lot in Dublin.)

It would be convenient to be able to drive places and do things when it suited us, not just when it suits Dublin Bus/ Bus Eireann/ the DART or the Luas.

And most compellingly, this morning on the bus, the guy behind me puked, with 30 minutes left in my journey.

Good god, but Dublin sounds like a terrible place to live. Shitty landlords and pukey co-commuters is just too much.
