The Distance Perception Thing
I have thought for a long time that people who habitually drive in town tend over-estimate distances. A blogger in NYC noticed the same thing.
The blogger is living in The City now, but she grew up in Missouri and she is writing a five part series about cycling in the ‘burbs and what she remembers. Just last month, I posted about the same thing.
It’s all about perception and it has little to do with reality.
