Iteach people to drive for a living. Many of the people I teach are young teenagers and I often think to myself that they are not aware of the dangers of driving a vehicle. Without proper thought and care a car can be a very dangerous weapon. However, youngster don’t go out to deliberately have accidents they do it because they are young and inexperienced. That is why I was particularly upset this week to read that a young woman motorist who crashed into a police motorcyclist on his way to work – leaving him in a permanent vegetative state – was jailed for 12 months.
