Parents of POB JFK students are rushing to allow their children to get a drivers license , WHY? Chidren should not be getting their license until they are at least 17. Also , Whats the point of children driving around in expensive and high performance cars. A study only came out a few weeks ago that shows a majority of teens text while they are driving.

George: Firefighters at the scene told me the pole that was struck pulled the wires off the house as a result of the impact. LIPA was called to repair the problem. The key thing is the teens were not badly hurt.
