Britons are Driving Less
10% fewer young adults in Britain today have gotten a driver's license than in 1992, says Goodwin. Cost is most likely a factor, as gas and insurance have increased in price. Goodwin and Lynn Sloman, director of Transport for Quality of Life, are tracking what they're calling "peak car."
From the Independent (U.K.):
""If the future is going to be on a different trajectory to the path predicted by the Department for Transport, then that has a very big impact on what types of infrastructure are invested in," says Sloman. Over the next few years, Sloman, Goodwin and the Institute for Public Policy Research will be poring over National Travel Survey data in order to "dissect the peak"."
