I had been reading this article and one thing that caught my eye is the author John Pearley Huffman is correct.
These times where car ownership is becoming an absolute luxury with all the push towards expensive insurance and high gas prices are driving the next generation away from the automobile. The arrival of pop music, smartphones and public influence is almost incredible in how they are telling everyone to get off the roads in gas-burners and take public transit. Even in RGSS, the Driver’s Ed program that is held ever since i entered has stopped last year, just as I received my driver’s license. At school, there are only a handful of friends I know of that shares a similar enthusiasm to cars as me, with the rest almost treating them as non-existent tools of transportation from getting from A to B.
And I’ve yet to mention that some of my friends don’t even have a license, and are honestly not even as so much as bothered by it.
As an automotive enthusiast and a secondary student passionate of driving, I feel sad.
Do you feel that the government should try to generate some hype or should car manufacturers do something to stop this from happening? Or is the future of road transportation would be reduced to nothing but public transit who in all respect, is never early and unanimously strike day after day?
