Bang. Zooooooom!

One less car on the road.

OUTSTANDING.

Concerning the comments made by Keef Riffhard. Shame on you for making such callous remarks. I hope you're not Sworn or a government worker. Because if you are, you need to take sensitivity courses. As a human being what type of service are you providing to others? How can you relate to others? How can you put yourself in the shoes of others if you have this type of negative attitude towards others? Reading the article, it made me think about my daughter's friends. Both drivers were good friends who had just graduated. They had meet an an intersection and decided to race one another. During the course of the race, one driver lost control of his vehicle. He died and the other one survived. The burden of knowing that he killed his friend has to unbearable. Not only did he remove a life, because of thier actions, they affected the lives of both families and friends. No one wants to see a love one in a coffin, especially at an early age. The responsibility lies on the parents or guardians. It's easy to point fingers, but parents, it is our responsibility to communicate with our love ones about the responsibilities and consequences of driving. Peer pressure is also responsibile for this behavior, but I do beleive that communication and developing self esteen in the child is important so that the child can say no. We see advertisements of, "Do not drink and drive" and some agencies display vehicles that have been involded in DUI accidents. Why can't agencies also display vehicles that were involved in racing? I beleive one of the best times would be during graduation or prom week. Yes, our youth and even adults can make foolish decisions, while some of us learn from them there is always a small margin that doesn't. We need to be proactive and work together in making this terrible event a positive outreach to others. Displaying sensitivity to others does not cost a thing. It just shows you're a human being.
