Wonder if you could do without your car for a week? Metro area families are invited to join the Drive Less, Save More Challenge to see how much they can reduce their driving.

Last June, three Portland Metro families competed in the "Drive Less/Save More Challenge" and KGW followed their progress.

The families also kept blogs where they described the challenges and successes of reducing driving.

This year, all participating families receive an incentive package, and coaching from experts on how to reduce their driving.

Last year's winning family shaved 538 miles from their weekly average, and won a laptop computer and a $400 McMenamin's gift card.

Families interested in being considered can email name and phone number to henry@pacwest.com.
