Last week we asked Central Minnesotans if they knew the life skill of driving a manual vehicle, and the results will surprise you!

The older I get, the more I notice less and less people know how to drive a stick shift. Thankfully when I was 19, a friend of mine taught me how to get around town with a manual car. We wanted to find out how many Central Minnesotans actually knew the skill! Here are the results:

  1. Yes! That is the way I had to learn! 63.46%
  2. Yes, learned later in life. 29.81%
  3. Never even attempted to start a manual car! 3.85%
  4. Tried, and failed. 2.88%

These results were very shocking to us! We totally thought less people would know how to drive a manual transmission. But hey! We are definitely impressed. And make sure you keep passing down that skill! Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey.
