I read this interesting article in the Washington Post this morning about how teenage driving deaths double in the summer months. I am tucking it away until next May. Our school year in SW Florida has already ended, but if you’re still in school you may want to discuss this with your high school students. Perhaps being aware of the trends around summer party weekends will cause a few more young people to save themselves. The article points out that many people feel they do not have control of whether or not they are involved in a collision. The data suggests otherwise. Educators, have a wonderfully restful, enjoyable, and safe summer.
