I’m just returning home after a two-week vacation off island and was reading the newspapers to get caught up with the news.
I read the Editorial in the 30 January edition of your paper, which dealt with our young drivers speeding and I must say I agree whole heartedly.
Suggestions to help deter these senseless deaths? When a youth is caught speeding, take their license away for a year or two. No questions asked, just automatically relieve them of their dearest treasure: their drivers license.
Also, why can’t Government or the private sector get behind Robert Campbell of Campbell’s Auto and help him complete the Breakers Speedway?
If the youths have a place where they can go and drive in a safe environment and also get good driving education, we’ll see a drastic change on our roads.
Make Drivers Ed a mandatory part of the school curriculum. Classes can take place on weekends at the Speedway.
Something has to be done; our young men are killing themselves off before they can take their place in society. No price is too high in order to save our precious young people….our future.
