Special thanks to the driver who ran a red light, slammed into my car and then drove away.
Let me explain. My teenage son was driving the car, and my wife and I have been doing our best to teach him how to be a responsible driver. This driver taught him an invaluable lesson: Our son was shown exactly what happens when you drive distracted or drunk.
I’m sure it’s a lesson he won’t soon forget. Most likely, he’ll now never pick up a phone while behind the wheel, or have one too many and then risk someone else’s life. So, thanks.
As for explaining to my son why someone would choose to drive like an idiot, and then avoid taking responsibility for the aftermath? Well, I haven’t been able to explain that to him.
