Lessons Learned – Week of September 5, 2010

GRENNE COUNTY, Ohio — (8/25) A 19-year-old, Brennan Eden, was driving well over 100 mph when he passed a police cruiser in the left shoulder of an interstate, striking a steel guard rail that sent his car flying into a bridge overpass.  Amazingly, he survived!!

Lesson Learned: Either buy a bike or start taking the bus or something. Eden allegedly had prior legal trouble with traffic and speeding violations. According to his driving record, he was cited for failure to control after a crash last October. Then, just nine days later, records show that he was ticketed for driving 90 mph in a 65 mph zone. If he ever gets his license back, what do you think his insurance premiums would be?
