Mother afraid for son’s texting and driving

Q. My 17-year-old son texts while he is driving. I’ve asked him to stop several times, but he says he’s a good driver and nothing will happen to him. I’m really frightened, especially with the holiday traffic. Could you please explain why so many young people don’t think it’s a problem?

Correction

In the Tuesday edition of The Commercial, the contact telephone number for the AARP Smart Driver Safety Program to be held Saturday was listed incorrectly. The correct number is (870) 247-4898.
