Many Americans would consider the loss of their car the equivalent of losing their freedom. But young adults might disagree. In fact, a new survey says 18-34 year olds would be more negatively affected by losing their cell phone. The study, conducted by car-sharing network Zipcar last December, accounted for the opinions of 1,015 adults aged 18 and over. Results showed nearly two-thirds of Millenials say they’d rather have their mobile devices than own a car. A whopping 74% say they’d rather shop online than drive to a store. Nearly half say they avoid driving to see friends in favor of connecting on line, and of those who do drive, 25% say they use driving apps to reduce time on the road. Zipcar chairman and CEO Scott Griffith says, “We’re living through the most important shift in transportation in generations – the creation of a new mobility society.”
