Probably because its harder to drive, eat and talk on the phone at the same time with a stick.

If you meant to reply my thread:

A Porsche is constructed for high speed driving on the autobahn. Do you really think people eat, drink and telephone while driving 300 km/h?

So you belong to the sort of People whose car is their dining room, too? Which meals do you prefer while driving? Or do you just eat ice cream while driving? Lots of people do it in this summer time. But woe if you have to break suddenly.

Interesting assumption...
Where did I say that I do those things? I just answered the question with my opinion as to the decline in popularity.

It's just easier. I'm of the group who would rather not drive at all if it was an option. I do have to drive most places I go; however, I bike if possible (not so much where I live now), walk when possible, and when I am in a city with public transportation I take it everywhere possible.

Long story short: I just don't enjoy driving so the simpler the better for me.

Dear Sir,

please don't mind. You posted, that it's probably harder to eat, talk on the phone and handle a stick at the same time. So I thought you are talking about your own experience.

Your attitude is sympathic to me. I love to bike, too and do you know which kind of bike I like the most? Mountain bikes with 27 gears. I live in a City, too and I take subways, street cars and buses almost every day. I wouldn't need to drive cars at all. But when I do I want to have fun driving and not "old-grandpa-driving". By the way, do you know that driving with a manual is friendlier to the Environment than driving with an automatic? The manual transm. version of the same automobile model consumes less gasoline than the automatic version.

I just completed my first responding-thread to yours. So you see we both have almost the same life circumstances.
