I read yesterday that about 90 percent of all the bicyclists in Stockholm have a drivers license.
This is great. They could drive but they don’t.
It also makes me feel earthy for even Sweden. Because I do not have a drivers license anymore. I choose riding the bike, walking, the bus always.
E did this in Port Jervis, our failed experiment in gentrification in upstate New York. It was awful. She couldn’t even get to Wal-Mart. You try doing all your shopping at Sav-a-Lot, which just went out of business, leaving the town with nothing.
But here in Stockholm it works.
Of course, there are the reality checks – the shopping, the summer vacations, all that.
So I am going to download the drivers license application.
