    94 and driving around?!? Lucky no one else was killed, especially a child. There needs to be laws!

      There are, how about we all start following them? Like: Doing the speed limit. Coming to a complete stop. Using your turn signals. Don’t drive impaired. Don’t drive distracted. The NHTSA statistics state the most dangerous age group behind the wheel are males 21-25. So being the good citizen you are, you’ll be turning in your keys – at what age?
