posted: 03/29/2014 3:05 a.m. Discuss

posted: 02/22/2014 3:11 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I read with interest about the decline in traffic fatalities and wonder if mandatory driver’s education would reduce the number even further. Or is it mandatory?

I won’t let him on the highway because he’s not ready, yet legally he could, and that’s kind of scary. — Thinks Licensing Too Easy
