Did you know that about half of teens 16-19 are now driving without a license? That number has been steadily increasing since the 1980s.Steve Sailer expounds on the subject:
Generally, it's much harder to pass the driver's test now. Kids flunk it multiple times. Also, there are all sorts of restrictions on new drivers to prevent the kind of horrific stories you used to read in the papers about four 16-year-olds being killed in a one car accident celebrating the driver's 16th birthday.
Drunk driving is very expensive now. I recently overheard one intelligent looking youth explaining to his less acute looking friend that a single DUI would cost you about $10,000 all told -- a good round number to memorize.
Overall, kids just don't go out much anymore. They have glowing screens at home.
