It seems to happen every few days in the Miami Valley (Dayton and vicinity). 7 students killed during hte past week -- 3 in Darke County, 1 in Springboro, 3 in Greene County. This time three young girls from Bellbrook, Ohio, just a few miles from where I live. And the driver survived and is home. What a call for parents to receive late in the night. How do we stop this from taking place as much as it does? Should parents just be more aware of their children's activities and not let them stay out so late? Should teens be restricted from driving at night? Speed?? Should there be more mandatory driver education? No other technology takes as many lives as automobile. We are against wars that kill a few thousand Americans a year. But auto accidents take many more from us. Cars can be engineered to be only so safe, and then it is up to the people who drive them, including young people.
