Viewpoint: Safe Driving

We're coming off one of the deadliest Memorial Day weekends in recent years in Georgia. 17 people were killed in car crashes over that long weekend.

Additionally, AAA says the end of the school year begins the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers.

Nationwide, more than 250 teens die in summertime car crashes.

Let's all commit to safer driving. Put down the cell phones, pay attention to the road and buckle up. Let's set good examples for children so they will grow up to become safe drivers.

And if you have teen drivers, talk to them about being safe and making good driving decisions.

It could save their lives.
