Teen Decade: Transportation

After decades of getting easier, getting around is getting harder. Flying is slow, crowded and uncomfortable, unless you are on a private jet. Trains do not go everywhere you want.

Cars get stuck in traffic, but they have great sound systems. There was a guy listening to opera music in the next lane. Wouldn’t it be great if we all sang along? I got a car rental and was given no keys. I just turned on my phone and pressed a start button. The car steered its way through the parking lot and I took it from there. I still have to drive so I turned off the radio.

At the bottom of the transportation scale, urban streets resemble suburban cul de sacs from the 1950s. Grown adults are rolling around on skateboards, scooters and bicycles.  I expect to see coffee shops to turn into lemonade stands.
