Opinion: Kudos for excellent teen car safety reminder


By Carol Ratchuk

I would like to thank the Cavagneros for their excellent article on “keep car safety alive- especially for teens.” There is a school break coming up and this was a much-needed and timely reminder for parents and teens of what can happen.

I would like to go further and suggest that parents that hold these parties be held more accountable (be aware of what is going on in your own home). Also, I would like to see the high schools have more car crash awareness programs. Teens seem to think “nothing is going to happen to me” — they need to see it up close and personal and be told about it more often from actual crash survivors.
