Wacky… But True March 6th

Fewer teens have an interest in driving. A new study by the University of Michigan says the share of high school seniors across the U.S. who have a driver’s license dropped from 85.3% in 1996 to a record low of 71.5% in 2015.

Expectant parents in a town in Sweden are being offered training on how to deliver a baby in a car after the local maternity ward was earmarked for closure. Two midwives at the hospital came up with the idea in order to help mothers and fathers to feel safer during the long journey (62 miles away) to the nearest maternity unit.

And in France, a man was on trial for burglary and the case was winding down. Just before the judge was about to hand down his sentence, the accused got up, pushed the prosecutor down, punched a police officer and ran. Because of the confusion he had a pretty good head start. Unfortunately, one of his shoelaces came undone… because that’s what brought him down and allowed a security guard to catch him.
