Kids No Longer Want To Learn To Drive?
Sun, 07/22/12 3:00 AM
This is the second year that I've read that drivers ed is down and only 67% of 18 y/o have learned to drive or want to. I don't get this demographic. That was the ticket to freedom. I had both of mine road worthy by 16. This isn't about affordability, this is supposed to be about internet, social media, public transportation availability, and choosing to live in the inner city. It doesn't make sense especially if you have to work for a living. I don't know how it's in other big cities, but down here you couldn't depend on reliable mass transportation if you wanted to hold a job. In fact, posession of a valid DL and your own transportation is a core requirement in most of the jobs I ever had even though it had nothing to do with duties. Mom and Dad must be offering a better deal complete with meals I guess.
