Raise The Driving Age To 18?

Is 16 too young to (legally) drive? If you're 16, you probably think not. But it's those over 16 - adults like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Adrian Lund - who...

Is it tougher laws – or raised consciousness?

Getting liquored-up and getting behind the wheel hasn't been cool for 25 years  now, at least - and the general public opprobrium has apparently had  positive effects. According to the...

Our “Defense” Industry: The Great Untouchable….

It’s Not That They’re Old…

Are older drivers by definition bad drivers? I doubt it. In all likelihood, today's "bad old drivers" were also bad middle aged (and young) drivers. They didn't become bad drivers because they...

Virginia’s Gone Loopy (Again)….

Virginia's gone nuts - again. This state - my state - has a thing for imposing grossly disproportionate-to-the-offense punishments. Oh, not on the cretins who murder, rape or even steal. It's...
