Thought update: Decline in teen driving could very well be the big reason behind the decline in road fatalities in the US, which has gone begging for a proper explanation. As the average US driver ages, the driving population also becomes much safer — just like the cycling population. (Very old drivers are probably more likely than teen drivers to crash, however.)

Yet even as the itnrsduialized world reaches a plateau in vehicle miles traveled (VMT), the prevalence of motorized travel in emerging economies like China, India, and Brazil will likely continue to grow. Well, people can only go so fast and are only willing to spend so much time driving. So of course they aren’t traveling as much.
