High Gas Prices--Good For Children

I'm waiting for someone in the "it's for the children" crowd to seize upon this report:

High gas prices could turn out to be a lifesaver for some drivers. The authors of a new study say gas prices are causing driving declines that could result in a third fewer auto deaths annually, with the most dramatic drop likely to be among teen drivers.

If higher gas prices save just one life, then they're worth it. Right?

Hey, maybe kids will start riding bikes and walking to school! Maybe parents that are telecommuting will join them! What a concept.
