Dangerous Driving

April 02, 2002

According to your March 28 headline, "Most Teens Admit Risky Road Behavior." "They think they are 10 feet tall and bulletproof," says Tina Pasco of MADD.

So, then, must adults. I am a frequent pedestrian and have nearly been run over by any number of hostile, unskilled and oblivious drivers. The vast majority are grown-ups; no teenager has ever shouted profanity at me for crossing the street too slowly, for instance. It is ludicrous to assume that risky driving is a "teen problem." Rude and dangerous driving is the rule, as opposed to the exception, on our roads. We all need to open our eyes and realize that dangerous driving is everyone's problem.
