How the Internet Killed The Driver’s Manual

There’s no need to ever leave the house. That’s what social networking, delivered groceries, and high gas prices have done to us.

Even if you leave the house, we know where and how to get places by checking google maps or the city transportation app to find the nearest bus or metro.

Technology makes it so easy we don’t even need a car. Nor do we really want one. The days when driving was cool and necessary are running thin.

From 2000 to 2010, the percentage of 14 to 34-year-olds without licences rose from 21 per cent to 26 per cent, according to the Federal Highway Administration.

There are also cheap daily car rental services and the ease of carpool which is far better organized today because of the bevy of social and mobile texting.

Car transportation drives the American economy and its communication. The Internet just makes us less dependent on it.
