Young Drivers

On Friday, an extremely tragic accident happened right outside my friend's house in Port Chester. A local high school student was apparently drag racing and lost control of his car crashing it and killing himself in the process and seriously injuring his passenger. The driver had just recently obtained his driver's license. This is every parents fear and the deceased 's parent's nightmare when their children first start to drive. I have 2 children who drive and another who will be getting her learner's permit in January. I don't know how other parents stress safety when driving but I know I talk to my kids about what could happen if you, even for a moment, do something you are not supposed to do. Whether it's drag racing, drinking and driving, texting or any other type of distracting activity while driving, could lead to a horrible and tragic accident like what happened on Friday. And it's accidents like this that I tell them about so they can learn about the consequences that can come from doing what is not supposed to be done. My friends 2 young kids walk home from school right around the time this accident happened and could have also been involved. Thankfully they weren't.
