Today’s comic was based on a news story I read that mentioned that the percentage of teenagers applying for driver’s licence has been falling for years. There a lot of theories but the fall off has increased lately and most believe kids just don’t see as much importance in driving anymore when they can communicate with their friends so easily on multiple devices. On the plus side I guess that means less people on the road and less pollution on the down side less people are not taking face to face as much anymore. Gotta take the good with the bad I suppose.
One statistic in the article: “…found that 46.2 percent of the nation’s 16 year olds had licenses in 1983, compared to 31.1 in 2008, a drop of 15.1 percent.”
