Interesting article in Automotive News about younger drivers, and how they’re less concerned about private car ownership than any generation in recent memory. With more young people connecting with each other via Facebook, Twitter, cell phones, chatting, texting, etc., the article notes that cars no longer represent the freedom they once did. Not that automobiles will every go away, but it makes one wonder if we’re seeing the beginning of the end of the “car culture” that has played so prominent a role in our society for the past half century or more?
Here’s a rebuttal from R.L. Polk.
