Good data attached to this report.  It should predict some of the changes in cities to a more pedestrian and car free designs.  It is also a telling sign about the lack of car loans being taken out.  It is pretty common, unless you are either really in a pinch or you are more in the old mindset about credit scores, that most people are saving up before buying a car to avoid any loans.
Crossposted from City Observatory. Hot on the heels of claims that Millennials are buying houses come stories asserting that Millennials are suddenly big car buyers. We pointed out the flaws in the home-buying story earlier this month, and now let's take a look at the car market.

I'm going to make this clear. This is a group about cycling and it respects all genders and has a zero tolerance policy for comments that may be construed as misogynist or potentially so. While I am generally sex positive, in this space there will be no latitude granted. Eric Torres found himself on the wrong end of that policy and is now no longer a member.

Time to put cars in their place. 
When we say “accident,” we are saying deaths on our cities' streets are inevitable.

I think I'd prefer a more common 26-inch tyre, just because I'm lazy and cheap, but otherwise it's a fabulous design with the right "set it and forget it" mindset around components.

Story
Introduction
I was born on a small, unremarkable, water and rock world occupying the third orbit out from an unremarkable yellow, main sequence star. I live and continue to endure despite the universe's best efforts.

At least that's the story until I can think of something more enlightening.
