America’s “driving boom” is over. So says a study by U.S. Public Interest Group, which found that after six decades of steady increases in drivership, the trend has reversed.
I am in Gen X but it seems I really should have been a Millennial hipster giving up driving to live in the city. It’s also mildly funny to me that driving in the US peaked just when I moved to Sweden for the first time. And I still can’t drive here, though the prospect gets ever more tempting. Just for big shopping trips and jaunts to the country. Really.
