Vigilance in summertime is paramount
No amount of law or law enforcement will keep you safe from stupid teens this summer, as this story illustrates:
"Cellphone bans for teen drivers are difficult to enforce," added McCartt. "Drivers with phones to their ears are not hard to spot, but it is nearly impossible for police officers to see hands-free devices or correctly guess how old drivers are."And they're ignoring the rule most blatantly in my hometown. One of these days, society is going to wise up and raise the driving age. Until then, keep your mental radar set to '11'.
