It is a Topic in itself, the lousy training of new drivers in this country, the sheer ignorance with which people embark on a potentially deadly undertaking as "driving", the horrendous lack of maintaining your composure at the instant that you need your composure . . . glad she got out of it alive. I have seen clothing and toys and shattered glass and blood all over the road with some crap Ford Explorer on its roof because of a rear tire blow-out . . .

I totally agree that kids need to have better drivers training before getting their licenses at 16 and then blasting down the road in their parents 2 ton SUV while texting their buddies while driving. We had mandatory high school driver's training back in the late 70's and early 80's before we got our license.

Yea, you had to love good ole Firestone tires. They were crap in the 70's and 80's too.
