Ontario’s Premier Dad, under fire for his proposals to slap restrictions on all young drivers because one of their kind got drunk and drove off a cliff, suggests he may relent and allow teenage drivers to continue to chauffeur more than one other teenager at a time. But that’s madness, surely—the transport minister insisted just this week that the proposed legislation was based on statistics! Bosh to statistics, anyway. Everyone knows that teenage drivers reach an unacceptable distraction threshold when more than one other teenager is in the car with them, unless those teenagers are related to the driver, in which case their presence has no effect. Courage, Premier Dad! These quarrelsome child-adults know not what they do!
Isn't this how Children of the Corn started?
