Not much has worked to stem the tide of distracted and dangerous driving. By now everyone has heard the warnings, but a glance over in either lane on your way home or to work on your next commute will likely tell you all you need to know about whether anyone’s listening.

So people probably won’t pay much attention to Bruce Benson, who was 16 when he killed his best friend 30 years ago.

In his letter to his son, provided today by the CBC, he says he knew one day he’d have to tell his son about what happened. It took him four days to write it. But the time had come. His son had just gotten his driver’s license.

Pro tip: Keep a shovel in your vehicle in winter months in case you see someone in a wheelchair struggling to get across an intersection.

To the gentleman in the Dairyland Power truck that pulled over and got a shovel out of his truck to shovel the sidewalk…
