Well, the University of Michigan wanted to get to the bottom of this and did a survey. Turns out, the majority of young people who don’t drive say it’s because they’re too busy. What?? Yep, they say they just don’t have the time to get a license.
Throughout the developmen of our Horizon 2040 plan this year, I’ve mentioned repeatedly that fewer young people are driving. There’s been a lot of speculation as to why this is. Many think that kids are more concerned about the environment than in the past so pass on driving. Others believe it is the expense that comes along with a drivers license. And still others feel it is because young people are moving into urban places like downtown areas where they don’t need to be able to drive.
