the driver is talking on the cellphone. Time to ban the use of cellphone by
teens while driving!----------Time to ban the use of cellphones in
cars, period. Other talkers distract the driver. Teens are
horrible drivers, endangering themselves and others, i.e., the 17-year-old who
hit and killed a bicyclist on the same day. The death toll due to teen
accidents is alarming.Teens brains are not fully developed, and
teens lack experience. Teens should be given driving privileges a little at a
time.In Washington State, a 16-year-old cannot drive with other
teens in the car. That way the teen gets a year of mentoring by adults. Yes,
that means parents cannot then turn teens loose so the parent doesn't have to
chauffer (sp) them, but convenience is less important than safety.

At that time in the morning, you should ASSUME there is someone in the crosswalk
or approaching the crosswalk. I am stunned at how many people we are injuring
or killing with our own sheer ignorance towards our surroundings while we drive.
