Driving has been completely normalized within our society, and therefore it's invisible. It's not a choice we make - it's just something that people do. Walking, cycling and public transit, on the other hand, are treated as incredibly political choices which reflect highly on the people involved. They must be health nuts, environmental wackos, or have something wrong with them (poverty, alcoholism, age etc) which prevents them from driving.

As long as these myths and prejudices cloud the discourse, it'll be near-impossible to have a serious discussion about these issues.
