I congratulate Knappa for putting on a great program ("KHS program is grim reminder of the consequences of drinking and driving," The Daily Astorian, April 24).

But another way to end the teen drunk driving is to stop the teen drinking. It isn't just the teens who are sneaking out to the keggers. We have many parents hosting teen drinking parties in their homes who believe they are averting the problem of their teens driving drunk, when they are actually promoting underage drinking.

In many cases there are children at the parent-hosted parties whose own parents don't have any idea they are drinking.

There is an age limit for a reason.
