Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You see those kind of markers all over in France too-but without the personal details, just the reminder that someone(s) died here on the highway. A salutory effect? Probably. And we were indeed talking about safety with dodo.
"Youthful indestructibility" is the eternal cliche'. But kids with a bright future --who KNOW they have a future- seem to have an internal alarm--a warning that says,
"Don't wanna miss all that good stuff,-- better cool it"

kids who don't believe in their future may not care as much, or have that warning.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
