Fewer wheels, more fun

Thanks to BikePortland.org for linking me to this Motor Trends article about a new study that finds the younger generation less interested in car ownership. The findings include these gems:

1) Many young people prefer to use their smartphones while commuting than to drive a car.
2) The percentage of young people without a driver’s license increased from 21% in 2000 to 26% in 2010.
3) The percentage of young people’s bike trips increased 24% since 2001 even though their population shrank 2%.
