BAR HARBOR — The death last week of 16-year-old Michael Lewis has a Bar Harbor woman taking a stand against irresponsible choices by teenage drivers on Mount Desert Island.
And she’s not alone. Since creating a “cause” page on the social networking site Facebook the day after the Tremont teenager’s tragic accident, Lisa Skiff Renault has been joined by more than 750 others urging local teen drivers to slow down and act responsibly behind the wheel.
Ms. Skiff Renault spoke about the Facebook cause page and her efforts to start a group to promote safe driving among MDI High School students on Monday afternoon, shortly after she returned from Mr. Lewis’ funeral at the Tremont Community Center.
“I started this because I’m tired of going to these funerals,” she said.
