For most people in Madison, cars as more of a pain than a convenience. This seems to be a growing contention among mid-size and large U.S. cities. But I believe Madison had the first human-automobile divorce proceedings in the Midwest.
The first divorce was at the Orpheum theater, where ride-sharing program Community Car was on tap to register new customers.
"'Own less and live more,' is the Community Car motto," says newly divorced Brent Sainsbury to thedailypage.
New Isthmus intern James T. Travis (and fellow UW J-schooler) got more of the details.
Here's some photos of the new divorcees.
