Less Licenses

I knew driving was becoming less common amount young people due to things such as high cost and more strict DUI punishments. Still, this statistic surprised me a bit:
In recent years, fewer young people are interested in driving. Just 79 percent of people between 20 and 24 had a driver’s license in 2011, compared with 92 percent in 1983
Now more than 1 in 5 young people do not have a drivers license, when thirty years ago it was about 1 in 12. Having just made a huge bet on the idea that homes within walking distance of businesses will increase in attractiveness, I am probably not unbiased on this subject though.
