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.

Cameras coming to ignition interlock systems
Cameras on ignition interlock systems used by those convicted of drunken driving may begin to appear on dashboards as soon as July.
In the heat of the moment, even when you think you had a full view of the road, there are still times when we miss what really happened in an accident.

Three people were killed in two crashes in which vehicles plunged into icy bodies of water, and charges were filed in one of the accidents, authorities said.
A car believed to have been traveling at high speed struck a parked vehicle in Burlington on Sunday afternoon and then went over the river wall into the icy Delaware River, the Burlington County prosecutor’s office said.
The driver escaped, but the female passenger was still in the front seat and was submerged.
Twenty-three-year-old Stephanie White, of Burlington, was pronounced dead at a hospital in Willingboro.

Metro riders have adjusted after years of subway troubles: They expect the worst
Maybe it’s because there are so many other things to worry about these days, but Metro riders seem to have become downright philosophical about how lousy Washington’s transit system is.
