I’m not even opposed to still having cars around - just having them as the assumed default for how you’d get anywhere.

Airports have been a source of family frustration. They should be such a common destination as to be the poster child for mass transit. Instead, any morning flight brings prompts of where to schedule a taxi because buses will be unreliable and hard to reach with a bunch of suitcases.

I agree with all the sentiments and conclusions about this article. But this stuck with me:

I ran home to get my phone and proceeded to the crash site.

Maybe I'm just a product of the times but it feels weird to me for anyone to leave the house without their phone these days.

I leave my phone behind nearly every time I walk to the groccery store. 45 minutes where I'm not compelled to stare at a screen. Its a nice break.

Especially, when I read about accidents/crashes, or see the results of driving mistakes or violations, my first thought is my phone. Maybe it’s a kind of anxiety, but if you can’t notify people that something happened, call emergency services, won’t it just be that much worse? How long will it take spfor someone to make all the connections that you could make in seconds with your phone?
