    Thanks IR! ;) :D

    A friend of William's was injured in a car accident here in town night before last! :eek: She is 16 and was a passenger in a car driven by another 16 year old who attends my son's high school. The young man ran a flashing red light at 11:50 p.m. and was t-boned! He is alright but she suffered a fractured hip, punctured lung and ruptured spleen! :( She has been flown to U of M Medical Center in Ann Arbor...that's where the most seriously injured victims go...I hope she will be alright! :( The young man was ticketed and I'd say his license will be gone for quite some time!

    It got everyone's attention poochee! In my heart I think 16 is too young to drive alone....you have to hope parents take the child's maturity into consideration before letting them drive at that age!

    As I said...you have a wise Mom! (y) :)

    I just think a teenager at 16 needs to have displayed a certain level of maturity to drive a car...were you mature enough in your Mom's eyes then? She was thinking of you and your safety...not just herself I'd think! We Mom's worry enough about our teenagers when they aren't driving...because we love our children and don't want to lose our children to an auto accident no matter who is at fault!

    Hi angel, I taught both of my sons. We started out with a lot of mall parking lot driving instruction. They both started at 15-1/2. It wasn't till after they turned 16 that we left them drive alone and that was only in town. We have basicly only owned "mature" autos so we left them drive one of those. They paid 1/2 of the increase in the insurance bill until they got jobs. Good luck to your son
