Safety lessons

   It seems like every year, someone is coming up with a new way to tell young people how to be better, safer drivers.

   The latest example was far from planned. The parents of a woman who died in a crash on Easter morning agreed to have the car placed on the lawn at Eden High School.

   Maybe it will have an impact. But as I wrote in my column today, the message always manages to escape some kids at this time of the year, when we hear and read stories about fatal crashes.

   Students take driver education. They learn from preschool about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. They are constantly told to be careful.

   Is there anything else we can we do to prevent more tragedies? Is the answer to simply raise the driving age?
