Contract might prevent teen tragedy

Signing a car driving contract between parent and teenA Vancouver, Wash., crash took the life of a 17-year-old who got his license just two days before smashing into a traffic pole on Halloween, tearing his car in two.
   An 18-year-old passenger in the car also died. Both teens attended Mountain View High School.
   In a KATU-TV report, driving instructor Kim Tate says the accident makes her “want to cry … it’s heart-wrenching because it (happens) over and over again.”
   Teens are extremely vulnerable to distraction when they’re newly licensed, Tate said. Getting teens and their parents to sign a driving contract would help, she added, because expectations and consequences become clear.
