Last year, The New York Times ran a story about how teenagers were showing a surprising new reluctance to drive. That set us talking in my house. Both my husband and I recalled showing up at the DMV the day we became eligible for our respective permits/ What was this about, we wondered. Were today’s kids so comfortable having their parents haul them around that they didn’t feel the need to drive themselves? Did they feel so connected to their friends via ichat that there was no need to be in the same room? Or was it out of concern for the environment?
