The Benefits for Recipient Drivers
For many American families and individuals, a vehicle is more than just an extra amenity: it’s a necessity. For many adults, vehicles are the only means of getting to work or going out to buy food and other necessary provisions for themselves and their families. This is especially true in rural areas in Kentucky where residents have to commute to their jobs and public transportation may not be available. Many others reside in cities and may require vehicles to commute to suburban jobs. In fact, the vast majority of those who cannot afford their own vehicles in Kentucky are also located in regions where the need for vehicles is most pressing. Data provided by the Federal Transportation Administration, Urban Institute Study, and 2010 American Community Survey found that 75% of welfare recipients live in cities or rural areas, while nearly 70% of new jobs are located in suburban areas — meaning in order to get to these jobs, those in cities or rural areas must commute.
