    I just recently relocated to the area a year ago. I have 3 teenagers and two are driving. I am horribly nervous for my kids to be out on the roads here. In one day within 3 miles I had 3 different drivers vearing into my lane. If I didn’t have quick reaction time my family and I could have been in same scenario. I have never in my life seen so many wreckless drivers. The state of Pennsylvania has to do something about this! We need stiffer penalties for the careless driving. My heart goes out to the family members who have lost there loved ones this week due to careless actions of others. This is the second devastating and heartbreaking story in one week that lives were lost at the hands of a reckless people!
