The article “Man who drove into food vendor pleads guilty to careless driving” by Howard Pankratz matters because many kids in our class have their permit and they need to realize that driving is a serious responsibility that some people cannot handle. Mead Myers, 31, was driving home, fell asleep, and hit, 27-year-old Pedro Hernandez, a street vendor. Hernandez has multiple severe injuries because of it. This article matters to the world because people all over the world drive who could do the same thing. This article matters to our community because it happened on Sheridan which is a couple miles past my house. This article matters to our class because since we are teenagers it is a great lesson to learn; if you’re feeling sleepy at all have someone else drive you home because it is not worth it.
