More Evidence That America May Have Reached ‘Peak Car’

More Evidence That America May Have Reached ‘Peak Car’ : Greentech Media

It\’s a bit surreal when an academic study reads like a biography.

Whenever a new study on the decline of driving in America is released, it\’s almost like reading a chapter of my life and the people around me.

Three years ago, I lived in rural New England and drove my vehicle to get to most places — particularly in the winter. But like a lot of Millennials, I moved to Washington, D.C. after the recession into a booming local economy.

I quickly ditched my car for a number of reasons: easy access to public transportation, high auto insurance rates in D.C., and the general hassle of owning a car in a city. There\’s also the thrill of riding a bicycle through gridlocked traffic, a feeling that any urban bicyclist will describe with glee.
