Infrastructure is a problem. And you would be adopting a car dependent 

Many low income households wouldn't be able to afford a car and for commuting, 
car sharing is often not possible. All medical, shopping, etc., services would 
probably require a car. And there is no public transportation. It can be an 
expensive lifestyle unless you work at home. Even then you still need access to 
a car for things other than commuting.
