Phased-In Teen Driving Is A Smart Tool, Could Save 2,000 Lives

Driving is a privilege, not a right!

That's what all teenagers hear when they learn how to drive.

It's true though!

And if more states implemented phased-in teen driving programs, the U.S. could save over 2,000 lives a year.

If driving privileges are phased in so that beginners are restricted to only lower-risk driving situations, the roads will be safer and parents will be happier.

The National Safety Council agrees:

"We knew that when states pass good laws, lives are saved and a lot of money is saved. We'd just never done the analysis."

The sad thing is that vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens. Drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 are four times more likely than older drivers to crash.

So far, New York and Delaware are the only states that use effective programs that reward beginner drivers as they gain experience and maturity. That's impressive. All states should be required to enforce the same laws.

Even 17-year-old Justin Bieber, who doesn't mind driving around with a Yankee candle air freshener, has been in a few bang-ups himself. If more teens were to be restricted to these laws, we all would safer on those roads…right??

Will Lindsay Get To Go Home For The Holidays?

We just don't know about this…

Lindsay Lohan has been given permission to leave the Betty Ford Center for approved field trips as far as Los Angeles, and now she's apparently hoping to extend the day-pass - all the way to Long Island!

Sources close to actress reveal that she's requested to go home to the east coast for Thanksgiving and Christmas to be with her family during the holidays!

According to the insiders, however, LiLo understands what a big privilege she's asking for and if the rehab facility doctors tell her it's not going to happen, she's okay with it.

Hmm…

Isn't part of the reason she's there until January so she isn't exposed to temptation during the holidays?

Slow it down a little bit, bb! There's always next year!

We know how hard it is to be away from your family, especially during the holidays, but right now your health has to come first!

What do U think?? Should Linds be allowed to go home??

Finally! Some real progress!

Wow! This is a huge step for her!

It sounds like she's finally taking her rehabilitation seriously! We're thrilled to hear it!

Keep up the good work, bb!
