Are teen driving laws enough to keep Pennsylvania motorists safe?

For generations parents have been reluctantly handing their teens the keys to the family car and urging them to be careful, all the while worried that their sons or daughters will get into an accident as a result of too little experience, too many distractions or both.

Pennsylvania accident victim's dad sells car to afford funeral

One of the many burdens that families of accident victims must face is the cost of funeral and burial expenses. It can be difficult for families to afford these costs, and most haven't budgeted for them because it's the last thing they expected to have to pay for, especially in the case of surviving parents of teenage victims. Financial experts often say that expensive purchases should never be made in times of great emotional stress, but fatal car accidents leave survivors with little choice.

Construction workers face a variety of hazards on the job, making construction sites some of the most deadly workplaces in America.
