Why the Internet is guilty of slow death of cars?


The younger generation does not want to drive any more. It is a problem or rescue?

Dan Albert, the journalist from "Boston Globe", asks a question how during an era of Uber and Snapchat to make keen the younger generation to driving of the car? It cites as an example the daughter who is not able to drive. "Mollie who was born in 2000 is in epicenter of our current revolution. She is the representative of the target market of Uber and robotic electric cars in the conditions of the megalopolis. And such as it, scare car makers to death". The companies need to find out - the matter is that the youth does not like to go driving, does not want to buy cars, does not like to care for cars or just does not need them? Researchers assume that the Internet is connected with slow death of automobile culture. It is intuitively clear that today teenagers have no urgent need to cooperate together in time and space to communicate alive and to reach from Paragraph A Paragraph B as it was earlier.

So Dan forces the daughter to study driving, considering that it is important and better, than an alternative represented by Uber. "I consider that driving - in itself important experience and saves it from passive influence of the touch screen". The subject is discussed for years. It is noted that young people turn away from cars, and recently car makers do not know what to do to interest youth. Definitely, today's driving not such cheerful, as earlier: roads are filled, it is difficult to find the parking, to potter with the car is uninteresting because cars turned into computers on wheels. But it was difficult to think that driving will be ever propagandized as "clean experience", as a part of healthy, active life.

other journalist, Andrew Clark asks Meanwhile a question in "Globe and Mail": how to return us millenials and Generation Z back to cars? He also notes that the automobile companies are frightened. No, even worse. "Are in panic frightened. This best adjective for the description of a condition of producers of cars worldwide. They are horrified because millenials and Generation Z (the people who were born in the period from 1995 to 2015) are not interested in driving and, what is even worse, are not too interested in its purchase. At the same time Clark is much more realistic concerning the reasons: "I am not an expert, but I think that the fact that daily driving - trips to work purchases, navigation on big cities-?? it is everywhere unpleasant experience, can be related to young people who do not want to spend for it tens of thousands of dollars." Unlike Dan Albert, Andrew Clark recognizes that now "the car represents one of the reasons of climate change, environmental pollution, jams and urban blight". He understands why young people would not like to drive the car.

Millenials and Generation Z face climate change, huge class inequality between the rich and the poor, the student's credit, political shocks and to technologies
