Stop driving children to school: It could be a lifesaver
Shocking. Saddening. But not surprising. The death of 5-year-old Camila Torcato, I mean.
When the news came that she had died after being pinned between two cars in the drop-off-and-pick-up area outside the Downsview school where she attended kindergarten, that was the order of reactions.
If you, like me, are the parent of primary-school-age children, the news may have seemed particularly horrifying.

After all the other problems that have come to light in the past few years, it’s almost as if D.C. commuters expect a derailment now and then.

Mother killed by 20-year old drunk driver WITH 3 PRIOR DUI’S!!!
OPINION: This is a case where the system has clearly failed. This 20-year old already had 3 prior DUI’s and was still walking around free and driving on a suspended license.
