A friend of mine told me this morning that she gave in to her sixteen year old twins pleading and loaned them her van to drive to the beach. Well, they rear ended a vehicle that stopped for the yellow light and her son was so busy watching the light that POW! He hit the car in front of him whose driver had decided he couldn’t make it. Thank God, nobody hurt. Her van was totaled. Just the same that makes it just about 100% of the young people I know who drive that have now totaled out a vehicle as a part of their continuing driver training program. I seriously suspect that our young people are not being given the proper driver training in schools. A big share of these accidents involve rear end collisions. For the most part I actually believe that these young folks were driving an a fairly sensible manner. Maybe it is the way that most of us drive and teach our young folks by our example. Whatever, I have been hearing about far too many teen deaths from driving and just wish we could find a way to prevent them.
