Mother Wants Teens To Understand The Dangers Of Driving

Visitation for a Lexington teenager killed in a car accident brought out many people Friday night, but his death has raised awareness about the dangers of teenage drivers.
One Lexington mother has been working for changes to teen driving laws since she lost her own son last year.
Donna Blauser is on a crusade to eliminate make shift memorials on the side of the road.
Her 16-year-old son, Tyler died after the car he and four other teenagers crashed on Man O' War Blvd. in 2006.
Blauser says her son's crash and the deadly accident this week on Bryan Station Road where Larry Chowning III died share obvious similarities; the drivers in both crashes were un licensed and had several teens in the car. Blauser is pushing to get drives education back in Fayette County high schools; to educate teen drivers about the dangers of the road.
Blauser says she doesn't wasn't to see anymore parents go through what she has been going through in the past year in half.
