Have you thought about getting an Undriving license?

There is a program in Seattle, WA that wants to teach you to become an “Undriver”. — Go to http://undriving.org/ for details.

Using creative methods to brainstorm and implement different ways to cut down on driving trips, their mission is to challenge people to reduce car trips in any way, shape or form.

What a great change for the New Year!

One thought on “Have you thought about getting an Undriving license?

  1. I have often thought that teaching sustainable transport skills should be part of the school curriculum, and in particular should be mandatory for anyone wanting a driving licence — just as anyone wanting a gun licence should have to demonstrate that they know how to defend themselves (or whatever they want the gun for) without rushing to pull the trigger at the first opportunity.

    People should also be rewarded for not learning to drive, e.g. by continuing to qualify for children’s fares on public transport.
